Treatment for Dry Eyes

Comprehensive Care

Dry eye is a condition in which the eye does not produce enough tears or the right quality of tears. Tears help keep the eye healthy and comfortable and, when tears are not produced correctly, the eye begins to lose vision. Symptoms of dry eye are burning of the eyes, discomfort from reading, scratchiness and excessive tearing.

If you are experiencing any of the symptoms listed above, the professionals of Heimer Eye Care can evaluate your eyes and prescribe the proper course of action to bring your eyes the relief they need.


Blepharitis Causes and Treatment

Have you ever experienced waking up with crusty, sticky eyelashes or eyelids that feel itchy, swollen, and sore? If so, you could be suffering from a common eye condition known as Blepharitis.

Blepharitis happens when your eyelids and eyelash follicles get inflamed and/or infected. While it’s non-contagious, it does affect patients of all ages and almost everyone will experience it at some point throughout their lifetime.

Most often, it is caused by continuous buildup of debris and bacteria. Other causes may also include allergies, dandruff, rosacea, acne, bacterial infections, and poor eye hygiene.

Your eye care provider will be able to diagnose Blepharitis during a comprehensive eye exam. Although there is no cure for the condition, effective management and proper hygiene can alleviate symptoms and prevent serious problems that could negatively impact your vision.
