TearCare®: Simple, Effective Dry Eye Treatment
Find Relief From Dry Eye Syndrome Today
Dry eye syndrome can cause uncomfortable and painful symptoms that can compromise your overall quality of life. Symptoms may include itchy, watery, burning or stinging eyes, the feeling that something is stuck in the eyes, sensitivity to light and more. When you have dry eyes, everyday activities like reading, using your computer, watching TV and driving can become difficult.
Fortunately, Partners Pacific Optometry can help you find relief from dry eyes. We offer effective dry eye treatment options, including the innovative TearCare® System.
How the TearCare® System Works
The TearCare System is a simple, in-office dry eye treatment method involving the application of localized heat therapy. During the procedure, two flexible Smart eyelid devices will be placed comfortably on your upper and lower eyelids. After 15 minutes of direct heat at 113 degrees Fahrenheit, your eye doctor will manually express the meibum — the oil produced by glands in your eyelids — from each of your eyelids to clear the blockages that were causing your dry eyes. Throughout the procedure, your eyes can remain open and you can blink freely.
Is TearCare® Right for You?
The TearCare System is designed to treat adult patients whose dry eye syndrome is caused by meibomian gland dysfunction or blepharitis. TearCare is a good treatment option to consider for patients who meet these criteria:
- Over the age of 18
- Dry eyes caused by meibomian gland dysfunction or blepharitis
- Not suffering from other eye conditions such as corneal dystrophy
- Looking for a simple and “natural” dry eye treatment option that offers lasting results
