Treatment and Management

Dry Eye Syndrome

Dry eye syndrome, also known as dry eye disease, is a common condition that occurs when the eyes do not produce enough tears or when the tears evaporate too quickly. This leads to a lack of moisture and lubrication on the surface of the eyes, causing discomfort and irritation.

Dry eye is a condition being diagnosed and managed more often these days. It is a condition that occurs when the eyes do not produce enough tears or when the tears evaporate too quickly. This leads to a lack of moisture and lubrication on the surface of the eyes, causing discomfort and irritation. Not only is this condition found in an older population group but also in young age groups due to increased use of technology and decreased blink rate. This leads to an unstable tear film and therefore causing dry eye syndrome from digital eye strain. This condition can also arise from genetic corneal disorders, blepharitis, environmental factors and systemic conditions. Aging, hormonal changes and certain medications can also contribute to the development of dry eye disease.

It is important to note that dry eye syndrome is a chronic condition and if not caught early enough will get worse and become harder to treat/manage. If symptoms of burning, itching, redness, tearing, blurred vision, sensitivity to light, eye fatigue, dryness or the feeling of sandy/gritty are experienced, it is important to have your ocular health assessed for dry eye syndrome as soon as possible to prevent worsening of the condition.

Our clinic is equipped with various tests and the latest technology that allows us to better assess the tear film and diagnose the root cause of the dry eye. Special dyes are used primarily in making the diagnosis. Once diagnosed we can better determine the best form of treatment as each form of dry eye varies from person to person.

Treatment for dry eye syndrome may include the use of artificial tears or lubricating eye drops, prescription medications, eyelid hygiene, warm compresses, dietary supplements, and lifestyle modifications.

Myopia Control

Myopia, or nearsightedness, is a common vision condition affecting millions worldwide, characterized by difficulty seeing distant objects clearly. At our optometry clinic, we prioritize proactive myopia control strategies to address this prevalent issue. Myopia control refers to the use of various methods and strategies to slow down the progression of myopia. Myopia control techniques may include specialized eyeglass prescriptions, contact lenses, using eye drops, or orthokeratology (ortho-k) lenses, which gently reshape the cornea overnight to temporarily correct vision. Additionally, we educate patients and their families on lifestyle modifications (decreasing screen use and spending more time outdoors) and ocular exercises that can help manage myopia progression, promoting long-term ocular health and visual clarity.The goal of myopia control is to reduce the risk of high myopia and associated eye health problems in the future.

MiSight® 1 Day

Coopervisions MiSight 1 day contact lenses are a type of daily disposable contact lenses designed for myopia control in children. These lenses are specifically developed to slow down the progression of myopia, also known as nearsightedness, in children aged 8-12 years old. MiSight 1 day contact lenses use a dual-focus design to help reduce the elongation of the eyeball, which is a common cause of myopia progression.

By wearing MiSight 1 day contact lenses, children can benefit from clear vision while also receiving the benefits of myopia control. These lenses are comfortable to wear and provide the convenience of daily disposable lenses, eliminating the need for cleaning and maintenance.

It's important to consult with an eye care professional to determine if MiSight 1 day contact lenses are suitable for your child and to receive proper fitting and instructions for use.

Eye Health

Ocular Nutrition

Having a healthy balanced diet that includes eating leafy greens and oily fish (rich in omega 3’s) is important not only for your body health but also eye health. Foods and supplements rich in lutein and zeaxanthin are important for your macula, the part of the retina that provides your clear central vision.

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a progressive eye condition that affects the macula, the central part of the retina responsible for sharp central vision. AMD is a leading cause of vision loss in people over the age of 50, particularly in older adults.

Risk factors for age-related macular degeneration include age, family history, smoking, obesity, high blood pressure, and prolonged sun exposure. Symptoms of AMD may include blurred or distorted central vision, difficulty reading or recognizing faces, and the appearance of dark or empty areas in the central vision.

If AMD runs in your family, it is important to ask your optometrist about eating healthy and taking ocular supplementation to prevent and/or delay progression of AMD early in life. AMD is genetic but if caught early can be delayed. For those with AMD, you should already be taking some form of ocular supplementation to delay further progression. Please ask our optometrists which vitamins/ocular supplements may work best for you.
