Surrey Dry Eye Treatments
Clayton Heights Optometry has some of the most cutting-edge and advanced technologies to quickly and effectively test for dry eye syndrome.
Among our treatments for dry eye syndrome, the most typical treatments start with medicated eye drops, anti-inflammatory drops, or a heated compress. Occasionally, tiny devices called punctal plugs are inserted into the eye’s tear duct to prevent moisture from draining out of the eye. These plugs increase the moisture level for long-term relief.
Let Dr. Sandhu and the talented, experienced staff help get you started on the path to real long-term relief from dry eye.
D.E.R.M.® Mask for Dry Eyes
When you have dry eye syndrome, finding relief is the top priority, even in mild cases. Symptoms like dry, red, itchy, painful, gritty, watery eyes can be distracting, reduce productivity and, in serious cases, may lead to corneal scarring and permanent vision loss.
The good news is that these symptoms can be successfully managed with the help of your dry eye optometrist. After a dry eye consultation, your eye doctor will determine the underlying cause of your condition and recommend a suitable and customized treatment plan that may include at-home eye compresses.
Studies have shown that half of all patients who suffer from dry eye syndrome can benefit from a moist heat eye compress.
D.E.R.M — which stands for ‘Dry Eye Relief Mask’ — is a natural and simple way to combat symptoms of mild to moderate dry eye syndrome.
How to Use D.E.R.M
Heat the mask in the microwave for 20 seconds. Then place the mask over your eyes and leave it there for 5-6 minutes. If you’d like a longer treatment, place a dampened mask liner over the D.E.R.M before microwaving, and you’ll have a moist heat compress for 7-9 minutes.
How Does D.E.R.M Work?
The silica beads inside the mask naturally draw moisture from the air and release the moisture when heated.
The mask’s moisture helps to hydrate the eyes, while the heat helps to soothe any discomfort. You’ll experience relief almost immediately.
Interested in D.E.R.M?
If you suffer from dry eye syndrome and washcloth compresses just aren’t cutting it, D.E.R.M could be the solution you’re seeking.
