For Patients

During Your Appointment

Every patient we serve will first go through our detailed eye exam process. During the exam, we will:

  • Confirm your health history, including your eye health history.
  • Assess your visual acuity.
  • Screen your eyes for signs of disease, including dry eye disease.

Please let our team know if you’re experiencing dry eyes prior to your appointment. This will help us search specifically for the cause of your symptoms, allowing us to diagnosis its cause and provide you with treatment options.

There are many different causes of dry eye disease, so there are certain things we have to look for when diagnosing your symptoms. Some of our diagnostic tests include:

  • Assessing your tear film break-up time, which measures the rate your eyes become dry.
  • Slit-lamp tests, which observes the surface of your eyes.
  • Schirmer’s tests. During this test, we place a thin strip of filter paper just underneath your eyelid to measure the moisture on your eyes.

Once we determine what could be causing your symptoms, we can get started on treatment!

After Your Appointment

If you are showing signs of dry eye disease, we will typically get you started with a DIY at-home treatment. These treatments can include lid hygiene, Bruder masks, and preservative-free artificial tear routines that could help clean away any blockages in your meibomian glands and promote a healthy flow of tears to your eyes.

Our next step is to have you come back for another appointment in our advanced dry eye workshop if your symptoms are persisting. Here, we will use cutting-edge technology to help solve your dry eye symptoms so you can get back to enjoying your vision comfortably.
