What is dry eye?

What Is Dry Eye Disease?

Dry eye disease is an uncomfortable yet common condition where your eyes feel dehydrated, itchy, or irritated. While over-the-counter eye drops can temporarily relieve the sensations of dryness, they won’t correct the underlying issue and can even make the situation worse. Our dry eye specialist will identify the root cause of your case to help relieve you of your symptoms.

Are You Experiencing Symptoms of Dry Eye?

While there are different causes of dry eye, most clients will experience similar symptoms, including the following:

  • A stinging or burning feeling in your eyes
  • Eyes that feel dehydrated or dried out
  • Watery or teary eyes
  • Blurred vision
  • Mucus in your eyes
  • Red-looking or bloodshot eyes
  • Issues wearing contact lenses
  • Scratchy or gritty feelings in your eyes

Personalized Treatment Plans for You

Even though they share symptoms, there are different forms and root causes of dry eye disease, so there isn’t a true one-size-fits-all solution. At California LASIK & Eye, our dry eye doctor will partner with you to determine the source of your dry eye disease and customize a treatment plan that’s just for you!

Blepharitis Treatment

Blepharitis is a condition where your eyes are inflamed, usually along the edges of both of your eyelids. This often happens when the oil glands in your eyelids become clogged, which can lead to dry eye symptoms. Using his experience and advanced technology, Dr. Barnett can diagnose blepharitis and tailor a plan to help alleviate your symptoms.

Out Treatment Options

We offer a wide range of dry eye treatment options for different types of dry eye, including the following:


Intense pulsed light (IPL) treatment can help clear up blockages in the meibomian glands, which are responsible for producing oil, which along with water and mucus, are the three components that make up healthy tears. IPL painlessly sends short and intense blasts of light energy to help clear away blockages and stimulate healthy tear creation.

This procedure can remove excess skin and fat that can gather up above your eyelids, causing sagging eyebrows and droopy lids. For certain clients, it can also reduce dry eye symptoms. As your eye and facial experts, we can determine if a blepharoplasty can help with your case of dry eye.

Eye Drops and Other Medications

In addition to treatments and surgical procedures, we also usually recommend specialty eye drops, supplements, and other medications to help relieve the symptoms of dry eye and address its causes. Dr. Barnett can discuss the best options for your unique needs during a consultation.

Dr.Barnett is an amazing doctor! I was considering Lasik for a while and went to 4 different consultations in the Sacramento area. My first day meeting Dr.Barnett I knew that he would be my doctor. He is extremely friendly, accommodating, knowledgeable, personable, and has huge passion for what he does. He deeply cares about his patients success and will work with them hand in hand every step of the way. I had a ton of questions for him and his staff and they answered all of my many questions with great detail, which built my confidence in the procedure even more.I would rate the entire experience an 11/10. I had my Lasik Surgery less than 24 hours ago and I am already seeing much better than 20/20 . The surgery itself was painless and doctor Barnett explained everything as he was doing it. Completely painless and completely worth it!Thank you Dr.Barnett and your staff as well!!

I recently had cataract surgery with Dr. Barnett, and I couldn’t be happier with the results. I opted for the laser procedure and monofocal toric lenses to correct astigmatism, first on the left eye and a month later on the right. Now, several weeks past the right eye surgery, I am able to read the 20/15 line with each eye. 20/20 is considered excellent. 20/15 is even better. My intermediate vision is also quite good. I only need glasses for close work, which is common for someone of my age.Dr. Barnett also has me on a program to correct my dry eye problem (meibomian gland dysfunction), and it seems to be working well. My vision has not been this clear and crisp for years.Dr. Barnett is very personable, and it is clear that he is passionate about his work and cares about his patients.

Dr. Barnett has been an incredibly thorough and generous doctor whose excellent care brought my eyesight to 20/20 after my lasik procedure with him. I immediately knew that I wanted Dr. Barnett to be my doctor after my consultation. What stood out to me during that appointment is how he emphasized that once he became my doctor he would consider me his patient from now into the future. His practice, in other words, does not involve one stop procedures but an ongoing relationship between a doctor and his patients. In the month since receiving lasik, I can say that this has been absolutely my experience and I expect it to continue in the months and years ahead. I absolutely recommend him to those considering lasik. Not simply for the important reasons I’ve just outlined, but also because the staff is lovely and Kristen Barnett, Dr. Barnett’s wife, is a cosmetic specialist whose work has left my skin feeling refreshed and young! Kristen, Dr. Barnett, and their staff are a great team who offer excellent services.

This man took incredible care of my husband. After our daughter scratched his eye in a fit about not reading more books, my husband didn't know how to get relief from the pain, with Type 1 diabetes and other autoimmune diseases. Dr. Barnett showed compassion, competence, and committed service to help my husband recover. When one solution didn't work out, he accepted my husband on short notice and went above and beyond to give another solution that is now providing relief. He does not worry about inconvenience. He is a man of definite purpose and is doing what he loves as he knows (and is right in that) it is of value to society. NUMBER #1!!!

Dr. Barnett performed my cataract surgery and lens replacement and I am very pleased with the results! Like most people I was very nervous and apprehensive about having surgery on my eyes but Dr. Barnett and his staff were very good about explaining everything throughout the process and insuring that I was very comfortable at all times. It was an easy and painless procedure.At Dr. Barnett's recommendation I was fitted with Vivity lenses and I'm very happy with the choice. Before I could not drive, watch TV or read at intermediate distance without glasses, but now I can do all those things without.I have now recommend my friends and family consult with Dr. Barnett before considering cataract or Lasik surgery and would highly recommend him.
