Q&A with Optometrist, Dr. Butts - Focus on Dry Eye
Q: What can cause Dry Eye?
A: Age, gender (female) and certain medications can cause dry eye symptoms. Other dry eye risk factors include work environment (dry offices or factories), the weather, and geographical location.
Q: How do Meibomian Glands cause Dry Eyes?
Meibomian glands are responsible for the supply of soothing oils into our tears. Oil is vital to prevent the evaporation of the eye’s tear film. Unfortunately, the Meibomian glands can become blocked impacting the tears causing the moisturizing tear film to evaporate quicker.
Q: How does Intense Pulse Light treat dry eyes?
Dr. Bruce Butts, OD of the Edmonton Dry Eye Clinic uses numerous treatment modalities and is very excited by our latest dry eye treatment, Eye-Light®, which combines Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) and low-level light therapy (LLLT). These treatments open the blocked glands and reduce eyelid inflammation – to provide long-lasting relief from dry eyes!
