Our Dry Eye Treatment Options

Solano EyeCare can help you overcome your dry eye disease symptoms and find relief.

Punctal plugs can help when your tears are draining from your eyes too quickly. These devices are inserted into your tear ducts to slow down how fast your tears leave the surface of your eye.

There are 2 types of punctal plugs:

  • Temporary or dissolving—This type of plug is usually made out of collagen and naturally dissolves in a few days or months.

Semi-permanent—These plugs are made of medical plastics and designed to stay in your eyes long-term. Your eye doctor can remove these plugs if necessary.

RESTASIS eye drops are prescription drops that treat the underlying cause of chronic dry eye by managing inflammation and increasing your eyes’ ability to produce tears. Tear production is essential to lubricate your eyes and prevent dry eye disease.

Meibomian gland expression is an in-office procedure that involves the thermal heating of the glands. 

Your doctor manually expresses the upper and lower glands, also known as meibomian glands, to allow secretions to flow. This process prevents the glands from clogging and leading to atrophy.

At Solano EyeCare, we use OptiLight by Lumenis to treat dry eye disease.

OptiLight by Lumenis focuses on the skin around the eyes to manage dry eye disease. OptiLight uses pulses of light to reduce inflammation, improve tear break-up time, and increase meibomian gland functionality

Radiofrequency therapy (RF) uses gentle heat to target the meibomian glands in your eyelids that producing oil that help keep your tears stable and prevent evaporation.

These glands can become clogged, hindering oil production and causing dry eye. The controlled heat from RF treatment helps melt blockages, allowing the glands to function well again.

Unlike eye drops, RF treatment tackles the underlying cause of dry eye by unclogging the meibomian glands. If you experience chronic dry eye symptoms that haven’t responded well to traditional treatments, RF therapy may be right for you.

Lid/Gland debridement is a treatment method focusing on eyelid management to remove the accumulated bacterial biofilm from the lid margin to help relieve dry eye symptoms. 

This treatment method has yielded significant results and can assist with lessening the effects of dry eye disease.
