Patients with Dry Eye may complain of eye stinging, burning, itching, redness, irritation or discomfort. Vision may be blurred, causing difficulty reading, viewing a computer, watching television, or seeing clearly while driving. Symptoms may be worse later in the day.
In the past, this condition has often gone unrecognized and undiagnosed. Patients may have been advised to “home-treat” their uncomfortable symptoms with measures such as artificial tears, warm compresses, lid scrubs, or medicated drops. All of these remedies treat symptoms, but do not treat the problem.
Recently a treatment known as IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) has become available to target the cause of Dry Eye and to reduce or eliminate symptoms. Developed by Dr. Toyos, IPL has helped many patients with Dry Eye to reduce their discomfort and improve their quality of life.
