Dry Eye Treatment in Auburn Hills, MI
What Is Dry Eye Treatment?
Most people may sometimes experience dry, itchy eyes, but if it lasts for a long time or happens often, you might have dry eye syndrome. This highly common condition is due to a lack of tears (or lubrication within the tears), which could be caused by an underlying illness, various prescription drugs, or behavioral factors. Tears are vital to the overall health of the eyes so if your eyes fail to produce tears, it can cause severe irritation of the eyes, as well as hazy vision. At Capstone Vision & Aesthetics, Dr. Leslie Emmert-Buck and her team of vision specialists provide several solutions, including iLux and IPL for dry eyes. Our team will conduct a complete eye exam to correctly identify your dry eye symptoms and confirm whether an underlying illness is causing the condition. To learn more about our dry eye treatments, arrange a visit with us at our Auburn Hills, MI office.
How Does Dry Eye Treatment Work?
Many patients with mild cases of dry eye can lessen their discomfort with prescription or nonprescription artificial tears. These eye drops can supplement your natural tears. If your dry eyes are more complicated, we may suggest the iLux treatment. In 15 minutes, the iLux handheld device warms and massages the meibomian glands in the eyelids to promote improved natural tear production.
Our team also uses intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments to treat meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD). By employing Harmony® XL PRO technology from Alma Lasers, pulses of light energy from this innovative light-based therapy target and treat abnormal blood vessels associated with chronic inflammation of the eyelid (rosacea or ocular rosacea), improving gland function and a healthier tear film.
What Are the Benefits of Dry Eye Treatment?
Dry eye treatments, like iLux and IPL, target the meibomian glands in the eyelids that produce poor quality or insufficient oil or meibum to soothe the tear film. The benefits of dry eye treatments at our Auburn Hills, MI practice include:
- Targeted treatment
- Reduced inflammation
- Controlled therapeutic heat application
- Improved meibomian gland function
- Long-term relief
Capstone Vision & Aesthetics Reviews
I can highly recommend Dr. Emmert-Buck. I had cataract surgery on both eyes as well as a lens inserted on both this summer and I can see 20/20 without glasses, it's a life changer. Dr Emmert-Buck is a very caring and meticulous doctor/person and explains everything before and after surgery in an easy to understand manner. She also takes her time with you when you are in her office to go through all the exams and any questions you might have. I'm recommending all my family and friends to see her for any eye needs.
Dr. Emmert-Buck is truly one of the most genuinely caring doctors that I have met. She spent so much time with me during my visits and was very thorough. She was able to solve the issues with my eye quickly, trialing multiple options to see what worked best. The office manager is also an amazing lady; so kind, helpful, and organized. I highly recommend this office to anyone!
