Dry eye syndrome is becoming increasingly common as we spend more time behind screens. Symptoms include, but are not limited to: redness, itching, excess watering, burning, irritation, discomfort, light sensitivity, blurriness, fatigue, and difficulty wearing contact lenses. Our technology can screen for and detect dry eye early to begin treatment to avoid complications. To treat dry eye, there are things you can do to improve the quality of your tear film, such as eyedrops, lifestyle changes, or a Blepharitis Exfoliation. A Blepharitis Exfoliation is a procedure which removes bacteria and debris from the eyelids to reduce irritation and inflammation. We offer this procedure at Midway Optometry to help unclog the Meibomian glands of your eyelids so they can produce an adequate oil layer in the eye's tear film. You can call us at (619) 224-2973 to book an appointment for a dry eye evaluation or Blepharitis Exfoliation.
We offer medical services and evaluations for eye-related injuries and issues so that you do not have to wait longer than you need to in the emergency room. Examples of eye medical visits include a corneal abrasion, pink eye, blepharitis, double vision, bleeding, something stuck in your eye, or anything else that you suspect might be urgent or chronic. You can call us at (619) 224-2973 to book an appointment to see if we can help you with your medical concern.
