The Best Place for Your Tears is Right Here

The Dry Eye Clinic at Lifetime Vision has been pioneering new procedures to help alleviate the suffering that comes with Dry Eye, an ocular surface disease resulting from inadequate tears. The clinic is proudly certified by the FDA under the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments and is TearLab-Accredited. Dr. Yunker leads a team of optometrists that use the most advanced technologies and equipment to detect and diagnose Dry Eye Disease. We analyze, assess and treat your Dry Eye based on science, not guesswork.

Management of this disorder starts with an accurate diagnosis followed by a treatment plan and detailed follow-up protocol using the most advanced technologies in the industry to reduce symptoms and eliminate further damage to the eye’s surface.

Tears are vital to the longevity of eye health and providing clear vision. The lack of good quality tears to nourish and lubricate the eye is a condition called Dry Eye, which is becoming a more common and chronic issue. According to a recent study by the American Journal of Ophthalmology, 5.28% of Americans suffer from Dry Eye, and that number is expected to increase in the coming years. That’s over 17 million people with burning, itchy eyes who are looking for long term relief!

The Dry Eye Clinic was developed to provide lasting relief for chronic sufferers.

It’s important to diagnose Dry Eye early, as symptoms only worsen over time. The most common symptoms patients with Dry Eye notice are their eyes seeming heavy and dry. Other symptoms include:

  • Gritty or burning sensation
  • Episodes of blurry or fuzzy vision
  • Trouble focusing on everyday tasks
  • Light sensitivity
  • Eye discomfort that increases throughout the day
  • Discomfort when wearing contacts
  • Crusty or mucus discharge from eyes

Are you suffering from any of the symptoms listed? Now is the time to set up an appointment with Lifetime Vision.
