You know the feeling – you blink repeatedly expecting relief for your eyes, but all you get is sandpaper. You buy eye drops expecting to be soothed, but they only bring relief for a few seconds. Dry eyes are one of the most common eye conditions today, and one of the hardest to ignore.
Dry eyes are the #1 issue we hear about from our patients. One of the major reasons for this is the amount of time we spend staring at screens nowadays. Keeping your eyes fixed on a laptop or smartphone means you’ll typically blink less, disrupting the normal function of you tear glands. Eye procedures can also lead to dryness; more than 50% of Lasik patients report dryness in the weeks following their procedure.
Dry eyes can manifest through redness, itching, burning, and even watery eyes. When eyes are dry, they attempt to overcorrect by producing a lot of tears. This result typically doesn’t solve the root issue.
Vision Clinic now offers Mibo Flow, a new form of dry eye treatment. Mibo Flow is a spa environment that uses several methods to stimulate your tear glands. These methods include warming up the glands, gently massaging the eyes, a heat-up mask and more. This is all done in a comfortable environment where you can listen to music and relax!
