Millions of people suffer from dry eye, a condition that occurs when the eyes do not produce sufficient tears or tears evaporate too quickly. The result is often dry, itchy, stinging, and irritated eyes. A chronic condition, dry eye can worsen over time, and inadequate tears can make daily life frustrating and uncomfortable.

There are two forms of dry eye – evaporative and aqueous. Nearly 90% of those with dry eye have the evaporative form, or MGD. Dr. Lindahl will evaluate your eyes in a series of tests to assess your tear film and the quantity and quality of the oils produced by your glands. These simple exams will determine if you have evaporative dry eye. If so, LipiFlow®, a virtually painless procedure, can treat the cause directly.
