Hill Country Vision Center is proud to offer dry eye treatment for our patients.
Ocular Surface Disease, also known as dry eye, can occur from certain medications, naturally by aging, or as a symptom arising from systemic diseases such as Sjogren’s syndrome, Rheumatoid arthritis, or Lupus. If you have a minor case of dry eye, you may be experiencing irritation, excessive tearing, fluctuating vision, and/or a burning sensation in your eyes. Excessive dry eyes, or dry eye symptoms that go untreated, have the potential to damage eye tissue, scar your corneas, and impair your vision.
Treatment options vary depending on the severity. Here at Hill Country Vision Center, we are the only optometrist in the area offering LipiFlow treatment for your dry eyes! LipiFlow utilizes Vectored Thermal Pulsation technology and a patented algorithm of precise heat that is applied to the inner eyelids with directed gentle massage to remove blockages. This treatment is designed to restore the natural oil flow to the tear film that covers the eye’s surface. While dry eyes cannot be cured, there are various ways to soften or lessen your symptoms. During your appointment, we will discuss the treatment options that best fits your needs.
If you have any question about dry eye or would like to be seen, please don’t hesitate to contact us today!
