Exploring Dry Eye Treatments:

Finding the most suitable treatment for dry eyes is essential for lasting relief and optimal eye health. Let's explore a few effective options to help you regain comfort and clarity in your vision.

  • Comfort and Clarity with Specialized Contact Lenses

    Contact lenses have emerged as a popular choice for dry eye sufferers. Specifically designed soft contact lenses can help maintain a stable tear film, reducing friction between the eyelids and the cornea.

    Contact lenses for dry eyes retain moisture and provide ongoing hydration, offering comfort and improving vision. They are a convenient option that can significantly alleviate dry eye symptoms.

  • Instant Relief with Lubricating Eye Drops

    One of the most straightforward and accessible solutions for dry eye is using artificial tears and lubricating eye drops, available over the counter. Adding moisture to the eyes, these products offer temporary relief and comfort whenever needed.

    In severe cases, prescription atropine eye drops may be recommended by an eye doctor to provide targeted relief for your dry eye condition.

  • Non-Invasive IPL Therapy for Chronic Dry Eyes

    Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment is another effective solution for chronic dry eyes. This non-invasive procedure uses precisely calibrated light pulses to target and reduce inflammation and eliminate demodex in and around the meibomian glands. These glands are responsible for producing the oil layer of the tear film. IPL therapy can improve the quantity and quality of tears, offering long-term relief. IPL therapy is an appealing option for those seeking a non-surgical approach.

  • Innovative Radiofrequency Treatment for Lasting Relief

    Radiofrequency treatment is another cutting-edge option for effectively managing dry eyes. This procedure involves the application of radiofrequency energy to the meibomian glands, stimulating oil production and enhancing tear stability.

    Radiofrequency treatment offers lasting relief from dry eye symptoms and can significantly improve overall eye comfort. Radiofrequency treatment is worth exploring for individuals seeking a non-invasive and sustainable solution.

Dr.Mary is amazing me and my daughter kailynn love her. She will go above and beyond to make sure yo... u are getting what you need. She is truly the best I have ever came across in the health care field. She knows her job and knows it well. We are moving out of state but I will definitely make the drive because she's that good, and I know I will never find another Dr. Mary anywhere.

I absolutely love Dr. Mary!!! She is very thorough, knowledgeable & personable. I absolutely enjoy h... er appointments. She likes to dig to the root of your problem not just cover the surface stuff. She will also follow up with you to make sure everything is going well. She always leaves me with "call me if you need anything." I wish all doctors were like her. I enjoy her practice so much I have paid out of pocket when I didn't have any insurance. She is worth every penny!
- Feb. 20, 2013
I just had an appointment there with Dr. Hemphill for my 6 year old daughter. She was fantastic and... will become the eye doctor that our whole family uses! The office staff was great as well. I would recommend their office to anyone!
