MGD is the leading cause of dry eye symptoms, otherwise know as evaporative dry eye. This can happen when the glands of your eyelids are not producing enough oil, which causes the tears to evaporate too quickly. If you are one of the 40 million Americans that suffer from dry eye, we have a solution for you! Common symptoms of dry eye include stinging/burning, redness, sensitivity to light, excessive tearing and intermittent blurry vision. Contact lens intolerance is also highly associated with evaporative dry eye.
TearCare is an open eye procedure designed to target the underlying cause of evaporative dry eye. By applying heat directly to the eyelid, TearCare melts the blockage within your Meibomian(oil) glands.
If the blocked glands are not treated, the symptoms and structure of the eyelid continue to worsen and atrophy over time to the point that the eyelids can stop producing oil completely. TearCare helps restore the health and oil production capability of this sensitive area with the perfect therapeutic temperature to melt the oil.

Laser assisted in situ keratomileusis, commonly referred to as LASIK, is a corrective alternative to glasses or contact lenses. Like glasses or contact lenses, LASIK is a method for treating refractive conditions including nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), and astigmatism. At Villa Park Optometry, Dr. Downs provides pre- and post-operative exams for LASIK and other eye procedures. Call (714) 998-6610 today to schedule an examination to see whether you are a candidate for LASIK.
