Say Goodbye to Dry Eye
Comfortable, clear vision is a reason to celebrate! Unfortunately, when your eyes are gritty, scratchy, and burning, it can be hard to enjoy your day the way your deserve to.
Dry eye is a condition that impacts millions of people. It can be chronic, meaning that it causes discomfort on a regular basis, or acute, meaning that you get dry eyes once in a while.
Regardless of frequency, we want to help you find relief, so that you don’t suffer from dry eye at all.
Book a dry eye assessment with us today, and we’ll help you see clearly and comfortably again.
Symptoms of Dry Eye
How do you know you have dry eye? Symptoms include:
- Eye fatigue
- Light sensitivity
- Gritty feeling
- Foreign body sensation
- Stringy mucus
Any time you experience discomfort, it is important to get an eye exam. Dry eye isn’t dangerous on its own, but if left untreated, it can cause long-term damage.
What Causes Dry Eye?
Dry eye occurs when your eyes either do not make enough tears or the tears they produce don’t have the correct chemical composition.
The normal aging process, certain medications or surgeries, and prolonged contact lens wear are a few of the reasons why your eyes may not be producing enough moisture.
When it comes to the chemical composition of your tears, it gets a little more complicated. Your tears are made up of 3 layers—a water layer to keep the eyes moist, a mucus layer to spread the water over the eye’s surface, and an oil layer to keep the water from evaporating before it has had a chance to moisten the eye.
If any of these layers are out of balance, the tears may not do their job of keeping your eyes moist and comfortable.

Our Dry Eye Treatments
At Celebration Eye Care, our dry eye treatment starts with a comprehensive eye exam to determine which dry eye treatment is best for your visual needs. We offer a variety of treatment options to help you find relief.
Both radiofrequency (RF) and intense pulsed light (IPL) are technologies that have been explored for the treatment of dry eye disease.
InMode’s Envision system combines both RF and IPL technologies to provide a comprehensive treatment for dry eye disease that can address both the underlying causes and symptoms. By combining these 2 technologies, Envision can offer long-term relief for those suffering from dry eyes caused by meibomian gland dysfunction.
Radiofrequency (RF) Treatment
RF treatment involves the application of electromagnetic waves to the tissues around the eyes. It is thought to stimulate the production of meibomian gland secretions, which can help in managing evaporative dry eye symptoms.
Some studies have found that RF treatment was associated with improvements in symptoms and signs of meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD), a common contributor to evaporative dry eye.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Therapy
IPL is a technology that uses high-intensity pulses of visible light to treat various skin conditions, but it has also been explored for dry eye treatment.
This technology targets abnormal blood vessels and inflammation around the eyelids, particularly in cases of meibomian gland dysfunction.
Some studies have shown improvements in dry eye symptoms and meibomian gland function after IPL treatment.
BlephEx is an in-office procedure that treats inflammation of the eyelids. This inflammation can cause dry eyes by preventing oil production. BlephEx works by cleaning the accumulated bacterial biofilm and plaque along the edge of your eyelids and eyelashes to help you find relief.
iLux Thermal Pulsation
The iLux Thermal Pulsation treatment addresses dry eyes caused by meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD). MGD occurs when glands within your eyelids get blocked or are not operating to their fullest, impacting the tear-production process.
iLux gently unblocks your glands to help provide relief from dry eye symptoms caused by MGD.
