Environmental adjustments, eye drops, punctal plugs, and Lipiflow® are all viable treatments for dry eyes. The severity of your condition and the cause will be factored in to your treatment plan.

In your consultation, a caring and knowledgeable doctor at Kirk Eye Center will discuss your options for dry eye relief. In some cases, changing your habits is enough to reduce your symptoms. In other cases, you may need prescription drops or a LipiFlow® treatment to restore adequate moisture.

Perfect vision may seem like the perfect reason to skip your annual eye exam, but doing so leaves a serious gap in your preventative health plan. A look into your eyes can reveal quite a bit about your overall health. In fact, your eyes can show signs of serious illness before other symptoms can be detected.

Patients elect to have eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, for medical reasons, cosmetic reasons, or a combination of the two. Eyelid surgery ranks among the top five most common cosmetic surgeries and may involve the upper eyelid, lower eyelid, or both.
