Exploring Dry Eye Treatments:

Finding the most suitable treatment for dry eyes is essential for lasting relief and optimal eye health. Let's explore a few effective options to help you regain comfort and clarity in your vision.

  • Comfort and Clarity with Specialized Contact Lenses

    Contact lenses have emerged as a popular choice for dry eye sufferers. Specifically designed soft contact lenses can help maintain a stable tear film, reducing friction between the eyelids and the cornea.

    Contact lenses for dry eyes retain moisture and provide ongoing hydration, offering comfort and improving vision. They are a convenient option that can significantly alleviate dry eye symptoms.

  • Instant Relief with Lubricating Eye Drops

    One of the most straightforward and accessible solutions for dry eye is using artificial tears and lubricating eye drops, available over the counter. Adding moisture to the eyes, these products offer temporary relief and comfort whenever needed.

    In severe cases, prescription atropine eye drops may be recommended by an eye doctor to provide targeted relief for your dry eye condition.

  • Non-Invasive IPL Therapy for Chronic Dry Eyes

    Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment is another effective solution for chronic dry eyes. This non-invasive procedure uses precisely calibrated light pulses to target and reduce inflammation and eliminate demodex in and around the meibomian glands. These glands are responsible for producing the oil layer of the tear film. IPL therapy can improve the quantity and quality of tears, offering long-term relief. IPL therapy is an appealing option for those seeking a non-surgical approach.

  • Innovative Radiofrequency Treatment for Lasting Relief

    Radiofrequency treatment is another cutting-edge option for effectively managing dry eyes. This procedure involves the application of radiofrequency energy to the meibomian glands, stimulating oil production and enhancing tear stability.

    Radiofrequency treatment offers lasting relief from dry eye symptoms and can significantly improve overall eye comfort. Radiofrequency treatment is worth exploring for individuals seeking a non-invasive and sustainable solution.

I’ve been a patient here for several years. I love the fact that they work with you to maximize yo... ur insurance benefits. Both DrDrake & DrDrake are amazing. I’m in the medical field as well & I’m not easily impressed. I’ve had nothing but good experiences here! I highly recommend them!

CustomEyes has the best opticians and the best selection of contacts/glasses available and “in sty... le”. I’m always pleased with my visits, the doctors are always fast, friendly and very helpful. They got newer inventory for glasses such as Tiffany and co, Gucci and more. The girls who help with purchasing glasses and contacts are always super friendly/helpful as well and explain everything such as insurance/and lenses options greatly. Definitely happy with my new Tiffany and co prescription glasses! I can’t wait to pick them up.

I am from Colorado, and in Missouri taking care of my elderly parents. I had an emergency in January... and on a Saturday. I called CustomEyes, they were one of the very few clinics open on a Saturday. They were very friendly, and able to squeeze me into the schedule. I found myself staying in Missouri, and possibly relocating here. I've been due for an eye exam, so I gave CustomEyes a call because I was so impressed and comfortable at my original appointment. I saw Dr. A. Genilo, both times and everyone, from her, check in, techs, optical, and check out, was friendly and professional. I would highly recommend this office to anyone. I feel very comfortable saying, I have found my new eye care clinic and will definitely return. Thank you to everyone at CustomEyes!

The doctor and staff were extremely friendly and helpful. It's one of the cleanest places I've been ... to. Everyone was masked and washed hands before touching anyone. I felt very safe. The exam was thorough and I didn't feel rushed to choose new frames. They went out of their way checking my insurance and making sure I got the best price. I actually paid half here what I paid at the "discount" place.
