The Impact of Dry Eye

Experiencing dry eye symptoms can greatly affect your daily life and overall health. These symptoms can disrupt your work, hobbies, and even your ability to carry out everyday tasks comfortably.

Common signs include persistent dryness, itching, redness, and blurred vision. If you experience increased sensitivity to light and a constant feeling of foreign objects in your eyes, you might suffer from dry eye syndrome.

Ignoring dry eye symptoms can lead to worsening discomfort and potential complications. Chronic dry eye can damage the eye's surface and increase the risk of eye infections. It’s vital to seek professional guidance if you experience any of these symptoms.


Scleral Lenses vs. Traditional Dry Eye Treatments

The treatment landscape for dry eye syndrome (DES) has evolved significantly, going far beyond traditional methods like artificial tears and punctal plugs. While these conventional treatments provide temporary symptom relief, they do not address the underlying pathology or offer long-term solutions. The current standard in DES management involves a more holistic approach, emphasizing healing of the ocular surface and improved gland function.

This modern approach to DES includes prescription medications that enhance tear quality and quantity alongside mechanical lid treatments to stimulate meibomian gland function. These methods aim to alleviate symptoms and heal the ocular surface, providing long-term comfort and eye health.

Scleral lenses are a part of this advanced treatment spectrum. Unlike traditional methods, these lenses offer more than just symptomatic relief. Custom-designed to cover the entire corneal surface, they create a continuous tear reservoir, providing sustained hydration and protection. This approach addresses the immediate discomfort and the root causes of DES, making scleral lenses an effective option for comprehensive dry eye management.

These specialized contact lenses offer several advantages over traditional treatments:

  • Maximum Moisture

    Scleral lenses are larger and vault over the cornea, creating a saline reservoir that constantly bathes the eye, providing unparalleled comfort. 

  • Stable and Secure

    Scleral lenses provide a secure and stable fit by being custom-fitted to your unique eye shape, avoiding irritation caused by movement.

  • Reduced Friction

    Dry eyes are more susceptible to irritation from the mechanical friction of blinking. Scleral lenses reduce this friction, giving you clear vision without distractions.

  • Long-Lasting Relief

    Whether working long hours or enjoying outdoor activities, these lenses provide extended wear and lasting relief from dry eye symptoms.

Last minute eye exam - not expecting much. Overall left highly impressed -- great and thorough eye e... xam by the doctor. Fantastic experience working with Bridget to find a frame -- she is incredibly knowledgeable. No pressure by the team to order a pair of glasses -- good variety of frames in varying price points. Parking is in a parking garage with dedicated spots for patients. Scheduling was easy -- done online and also on the phone.

I've been going here since they opened and the quality of their exams is superior to any other place... I've been. In fact, when I've had insurance coverage that did not include Look See, I chose to pay out of pocket than go elsewhere.

For last 10 years have been using Dr Jerome and Look+See Eye Care, this is the best Eye care I have ... ever had . Have had glasses basically for my whole life finally found a DR and Clinic I trust . Also they not only look at current state but also review history and can see trends because they use my history. From pressure to cornea wall to macular degeneration a number is nice but rate of change in the number is much more meaningful.
