Are your eyes dry? Do they often burn or feel gritty?

One of the most common reasons for dry eye is the blockage of our Meibomian Glands. These glands are found along the eyelids and produce the oily part of our tears. Without this layer of the tear film, our tears evaporate too quickly off the surface of our eyes, thus causing symptoms of dryness.

We offer a Lid Cleansing procedure at the Eye Source. This procedure helps to open up your blocked glands so that the oily part of your tear film can be produced more effectively. It’s like a facial for your eyes!

If you or someone you know suffers from dry eye symptoms, come see us! We can let you know if you would be a good candidate for the Lid Cleansing procedure. Call us and set up your appointment today!!
