Treating Dry Eye with Innovative Technology

Treating Dry Eye with Innovative Technology

September 19, 2017

Treating Dry Eye Disease with Innovative Technology

In the not too distant past Dry Eye Disease (DED) was treated with a series of drops, basically guesswork to relieve the pain and discomfort of Dry Eye Disease.  I wanted better for my patients. Obviously, the best way to treat DED was to have it properly diagnosed.  First, we partnered with Tear Lab to assess the tear layer and test osmolarity. In addition, we now know that most people who suffer from DED have Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD).

Second, to alleviate the pain and discomfort of MGD we discovered the revolutionary treatment of patented Lipiflow technology. The results have been amazing!  More than 85 % of the patients we have treated for Dry Eye Disease have had vast relief from red, sore, stinging and burning eyes.  In fact, we are now remodeling our office to make room for our busy dry eye clinic adding additional space and state of the art technology.  We are proud to say we treat dry eye disease based on science, not guesswork.

We are proud to be the area's first and only certified Dry Eye Clinic serving the Grand Forks and surrounding areas. If you or anyone you know suffers from red, sore, burning, dry and uncomfortable eyes, please call our office for an assessment. It's quick and painless and you will be glad you did.
