Dry eye care

Most of us complain about our eyes being dry. Why do we have dry eyes? We live in a dry valley known for dusty allergic conditions. We stare at computers for hours and most of us could just get more sleep. Oral medications and heating/AC can all add problems.

Dry eye symptoms include scratchiness, burning, mild redness, gritty feelings, blurred unstable vision and contact lens intolerance. Dry eye diagnosis includes understanding your degree of difficulties, careful measurements of your tear volume and quality in the eyes, and the amount of irritation of the corneal surface. State of the art biomicroscopic evaluation allows a careful look at the condition of your eyes.

Most dry eye sufferers will experience significant improvement in comfort and vision by the treatment of dry eye disease.

We are excited to announce that we have resumed all regular eye care services. Please contact our office at 208-888-5252 to schedule an appointment or to discuss specifics about what changes and precautions we are taking during this unique time. We also encourage you to download and bring completed intake forms with you to your appointment. These can be found under the 'patient information' tab on our website. We wish you and your families all the best, from everyone at Meridian Vision.
