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
  • Blurred vision that fluctuates when you blink

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.

Punctal Plugs

Another potential option for treating dry eye disease, punctal plugs are tiny silicone devices that temporarily close the drainage duct of your upper and lower eyelid. These plugs can be an effective long-term solution for dry eye, and are always replaceable if necessary. Dr. Barnett can determine which kind of punctal plugs will work best for your situation during a consultation, and can implant them in your eyes with a painless procedure that only takes a few minutes!

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.
