Dry Eye Services

We have added the latest in diagnostic technology to offer our patients relief from dry eye disease. Dry eye affects approximately 20-30% of Canadians who may experience it as minor irritation to more debilitating pain or discomfort from chronic inflammation.

What is Dry Eye? (Dry Eye Disease, Dry Eye Syndrome)
Dry Eye is caused by an imbalance of the tear film which is the protective layer that spreads over your eye surface with each blink keeping they eye's surface smooth and clear
It provides nutrients and also is the first focusing point for light entering the eye to help with good vision

The tear film is made of three layers which each serve a purpose:

  • An oily layer - the outside layer which responsible for preventing your tears from drying up too quickly
  • A watery layer - the middle layer which cleans and removes foreign particles, and provides the eye with nutrients
  • A mucus layer - the inner layer which spreads the watery layer and keeps our tears against the eye surface 

If there is any disruption or imbalance of any of these layers dry eye symptoms may result


What are some symptoms of dry eye?

  • A scratchy feeling, foreign body sensation
  • Stinging or burning
  • Blurry vision
  • Tired eyes
  • Red eyes
  • Itching
  • Watery eyes or excessive tearing 
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Eyelid crusting upon awakening
  • Contact lens discomfort 




How is dry eye treated?
During our Dry Eye Assessment we complete a series of tests to carefully examine the ocular surface with specific diagnostic equipment to determine which areas of the tear film are imbalanced or not performing properly. After the assessment we will develop an initial customized treatment plan to address the root cause of your dry eye and solutions so that you can obtain relief, leaving you with comfortable, healthier eyes. 

This treatment plan may include:

  • At home treatments for lid hygiene
  • Selected eye drops or prescription eye drops
  • Supplements
  • TempSure Envi in office treatment
  • A combination of these strategies

Introducing TempSure Envi  



TempSure for skin tightening 

By delivering radio frequency to heat your skin gently, TempSure Envi increases your skin temperature for a prescribed period of time. This heat triggers the body's natural reaction to produce new collagen. These new collagen fibers are tighter and denser leaving you with a noticeable improvement in skin appearance with a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles


TempSure for dry eye treatment  

The radio frequency heat is applied to the eyelids to help unclog the oil glands which account for the major cause of dry eye disease
