What is dry eye?

Dry eye is a condition that occurs when your eyes don’t produce enough tears or when the tears are not effective, leading to discomfort and potentially affecting vision. This condition is prevalent, impacting millions each year, but fortunately, it is manageable with the right care. Dry eye syndrome can become more common with age, particularly among women, especially post-menopause. Various factors contribute to dry eye, including certain medical conditions like rheumatoid arthritis, Sjögren’s syndrome, thyroid disease, and lupus. Physical eyelid issues such as blepharitis, entropion, and ectropion can also lead to dry eye, as can environmental factors like exposure to smoke, wind, or dry climates. Activities that reduce blinking, such as prolonged screen time or reading, and the use of contact lenses can exacerbate the condition. Medications, including diuretics, beta-blockers, antihistamines, sleeping pills, and treatments for anxiety, depression, and heartburn, may contribute to dry eye symptoms. It’s essential to inform your ophthalmologist about all medications you take, as this can aid in diagnosing and managing dry eye, which is typically done through a comprehensive eye examination focusing on the eyelids, eye surface, and blinking patterns, alongside tests to assess tear quality and production.

What treatments does Modern Vision Solutions recommend for dry eye?

Modern Vision Solutions offers a comprehensive approach to treating dry eye, utilizing three advanced treatments: BlephEx®, LipiFlow®, and OptiLIGHT. Each of these options targets different underlying causes of dry eye, providing relief and long-term benefits to patients. Below, we delve into the specifics of each treatment, highlighting how they work and what patients can expect during the process.


BlephEx® is a revolutionary in-office procedure that tackles the root cause of blepharitis, a significant contributor to dry eye. This painless process involves a precise cleaning and exfoliation of the eyelids and lashes, effectively removing the bacterial debris and scurf. By eliminating the biofilm along the lid margin, BlephEx® not only alleviates immediate symptoms but also prevents chronic inflammation and damage to the tear glands, offering a proactive solution to maintaining ocular health.


The LipiFlow® System addresses dry eye related to meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD) and evaporative dry eye by applying controlled heat and pressure to the eyelids. This treatment clears blockages in the eyelid glands, allowing natural oils to flow into the tear film and restore healthy eye lubrication. Performed by a specialized doctor in a clinical setting, LipiFlow® is designed to provide significant relief for patients with chronic eyelid conditions, enhancing tear quality and eye comfort.

OptiLIGHT Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)

OptiLIGHT IPL, powered by Lumenis technology, offers a non-invasive solution to dry eye disease caused by meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD). It is backed by numerous clinical trials and utilizes intense broad-spectrum light to reduce inflammation that contributes to the condition. Patients undergo a series of quick, approximately 10-15 minute sessions, with each treatment spaced 2-4 weeks apart. OptiLIGHT’s Optimal Pulse Technology (OPT) ensures a safe, gentle, and effective process, offering significant improvements in dry eye symptoms and overall ocular health.
