Our Treatment Toolbox
-Preservative Free Eye Lubricants, ointments and gels for extended nighttime lubrication.
-Lacrisert (a time released "pellet" you put into your eye daily...like a contact lens, only not as big).
-Oasis Tears: preservative free lubricating drops which contain hyaluronic acid, great option for many of our patients.
-Tear Savers (tiny "plugs" made of silicone) we insert into that little hole you have in the corner of your lower eyelid - you have another 'hole' in your upper lid right above the lower one! This allows tears to stay on the eye, kind of like putting the stopper in the kitchen sink
.-Restasis: a prescription strength tear builder. Great to build tears and restore tears...but should only be RX'd after careful dry eye severity analysis and may take 3-4 months to build your tears.
-Xiidra: the first prescription eye drop approved by the FDA for both the signs and symptoms of dry eye disease.
-Heat Treatments ("melt that hardened butter in the glands") special goggles are worn to soothe the eyes and hydrate the eyes
.-Bleph Cleanings: Treatments performed by Dr. Dzubur and his team to eject the hardened butter from the eyelid glands followed by a medicated cleaning of the lid margin area
-Cliradex: all natural, preservative-free lid, lash and facial cleansers that help manage symptoms associated with blepharitis, MGD, rosacea, dry eye, demodex, chalazia and other lid margin diseases. Formulated with special ingredients, gets to the root of the symptoms, killing bacteria and alleviating redness and dryness associated with many eye conditions
.-Omega-3 fatty acids, a good pharmaceutical grade supplement like Physician Recommended Nutraceuticals is a great way to reduce inflammation and get better quality oils released from your eyelids oil glands. Your other doctors will love you for being on it! It helps with many other important parameters, like cholesterol and arthritis, just to name a few!
-We Love Eyes makeup remover is great because there are no harsh or drying chemicals in this to cause any irritations or redness, instead this is made of just 3 Organic oils- Organic Jojoba Oil, Grape Seed Oil and Tea Tree Oil, that’s it!
-Hypochlor: healthy eyelids are crucial to the overall health of the eye. Hypochlor gel eyelid cleanser is key to removing the biofilm buildup that accumulates on and around our eyelids.
-ProKera: a medical device used to protect, repair, and heal damaged eye surfaces. PROKERA is made by setting a piece of amniotic membrane tissue between two rings made out of a clear, flexible material.
