What is Dry Eye?

Dry Eye Disease is a disease of the tears and surface of the eye that results in symptoms of discomfort, visual disturbance, and instability of the tears, which can result in the potential damage to the surface of the eyes.

Managing and treating dry eye requires various diagnostic tests and therapeutic options.

We offer a Dry Eye Clinic where we diagnose and present numerous options for managing and treating your specific symptoms. Using a variety of diagnostic tests, a specific treatment plan is created for you which can include heat masks, tea tree oil wipes, preservative-free artificial tears, and Omega-3 supplements.

“From the consultation all the way through my PRK surgery, the staff were able to answer all my questions. They are very thorough with their pre-op information. I had no questions going into surgery. They pre-book all follow up appointments so you don’t have to worry about a thing. Dr. King was very approachable and answered any burning questions I had. Would definitely recommend them!”
