    OVER 40% OF AMERICANS SUFFER FROM DRY EYE

     

    Dry Eye has been around as long as I can remember, but diagnostic and treatment opportunities have expanded immensely over the last three years. I was inspired to further educate myself on this disease, and in September 2016 we opened the only dedicated dry eye center in Pierce County. I frequently attend seminars and as a COPE certified instructor, speak to other doctors on the necessity of providing this type of care.

    I really enjoy seeing dry eye patients and enjoy educating about it. It truly is an area where we can change people’s lives. I now work with my specialist Kari in our Dry Eye Center. She is a caring and accomplished technician who is very good at what she does. Together we work with our patients to provide a personalized treatment plan, and much needed follow up care to achieve a very high level of success. My heart is to care and serve my patients, and working in the Dry Eye Center at East Main Vision Clinic is a great opportunity.

IS IT DRY EYE OR MGD?

There are roughly 30 million people in the United States and over 300 million worldwide who have been diagnosed with dry eye. Most have learned to live with eye discomfort and have become dependent on drops or other treatment methods that only offer temporary relief. This has been due to a lack of understanding that the root cause of most dry eye (86%) is now known to be a chronic and progressive condition, Meibomian Gland Dysfunction or MGD.

MGD occurs when there is a compromise to the function and/or structure of the meibomian glands in the eyelids that produce the protective oily layer of the tear film. These glands can become blocked over time and can no longer produce oils needed for healthy tears. This blockage results in rapid evaporation of your tears and can lead to irritation, discomfort and if not treated, gland dropout.
