Dry Eye & Tear Film

Dry eye occurs when not enough tears are produced to keep the eye moist, or there is a problem with tear film quality. This can occur due to a problem with one of the three layers of the tear film. 

The layers of the tear film are the mucus layer that keeps tears on the eye, the water layer, which helps hydrate the eyes and keep them clean, and the oil layer, which prevents the moisture from evaporating.

Meibomian Gland Dysfunction

One of the most common causes of dry eye is an eye condition called meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD). The meibomian glands are the oil glands along the edge of the eyelid.

With MGD, the meibomian glands become clogged or damaged, which causes the oily layer of the tear film to become disturbed. Without the oil smoothing the tears over the eye and keeping them from evaporating, dry eye becomes inevitable.

There are many treatment options to help MGD gland blockage, including intense pulsed light therapy (IPL).

In-Office Dry Eye Treatment Technology

When we come up with a treatment plan for our patients with dry eye, we look at their lifestyle, medical needs, and any other important information when making a decision.

What is most important to us is that our dry eye therapy meets your individual needs and not just what has worked for others in the past.

We offer in-office treatments that can be done in sessions depending on what your eyes need. Your treatment plan can be made with the doctor, and the road to more hydrated eyes can be started.


Intense pulsed light therapy (IPL) is a common treatment option for those with meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD). IPL works well to relieve the blockages of MGD because it uses light waves and heat to relieve the glands and help restore the moisture in the eye.

Verona Vision Care uses the OptiLIGHT by Lumenis IPL device. Learn more about OptiLIGHT.

BlephEx is an exfoliation tool for the eyelid and is commonly used for patients who have blepharitis. Blepharitis is an overabundance of bacteria in the eyelid that can cause redness, swelling, and flakiness.

iLux is a thermal pulsation technology used to treat MGD. iLux not only treats MGD, but with its imaging system, it evaluates it as well.

The tool uses a combination of heat and compression to increase meibomian gland secretion and tear film stability.

At-Home Therapies & Treatments for Dry Eye

At-home dry eye treatments can be combined with our in-office treatments or used alone to help with mild cases.

There are many common triggers for dry eye, including the environment, digital eye strain, and certain eyelid conditions. These at-home treatment solutions can come in handy to combat these common dry eye triggers and leave your eyes feeling rejuvenated.


An omega-3 supplement can be a good additional treatment option if you suffer from dry eye. Omega-3s are rich in fatty acids and can help to stimulate the eye’s natural oils and add moisture back in.

For those with MGD or blepharitis, omega-3s have also been found to improve the ocular surface index score and tear break-up time.

When your eyes and eyelids are feeling irritated and red from dry eye or blepharitis, an eyelid spray or wipe can quickly clean the area to limit bacterial growth and soothe the area.

Eyelid sprays and wipes can also be used with a warm compress to further decrease inflammation around the eye.

Medicated eye drops or over-the-counter artificial tears can instantly provide relief and add moisture to the eye. When your symptoms are getting uncomfortable, and you need to add moisture in a minute, eye drops are your best bet.
