Dry Eye Therapy
Dry eye disease is a cause of discomfort for approximately 6 million people in Canada. Not only are the symptoms a source of irritation, they can lead to serious complications down the road. Infections, corneal abrasions, and even vision loss can occur if dry eye disease is left untreated. Meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD) is a common cause of dry eye disease.
We offer a range of treatments to provide relief for your dry eyes like artificial tears and eye ointments. If these don’t offer relief, punctal plugs might also be an option. These tiny devices, no larger than a grain of rice, are inserted into the tear ducts to block tears from draining out of your eyes.
We’ve got the knowledge and experience—and have invested in the right tools—to treat dry eye disease. Find relief by contacting our office today.
Almost 30% of Canadians have myopia (nearsightedness). It’s caused by an irregular eye shape or an improper corneal curve. When your eye is misshapen, light entering the eye isn’t focused properly, making far-away objects difficult to see.
Myopia can get worse over time, but when it’s diagnosed in children it can be controlled. Specialty contacts like MiyoSmart and MiSight lenses are some of the latest lens technology available to control myopia.
