Dry Eyes

the facts you must know

One of the most common complaints among people who use digital devices extensively is "dry eyes." Dry eye occurs when the eyes do not make enough tears or when the tears evaporate more quickly than usual. The eyes become dry and red as a result. At Shiv Jyoti Eye Hospital, we provide comprehensive dry eye assessment, diagnosis, and treatment.

Symptoms of Dry Eyes

Most people experience mild symptoms. In a few cases, dry eye can be more painful, with more severe consequences which could be:

  • Grittiness or Foreign Body Sensation
  • Burning Sensation
  • Dry or sore eyes
  • Red Eyes
  • Eyelids stick together when you wake up

Diagnosis of Dry Eyes

We investigate tear composition. All the layers are examined: Lipid, Aqueous, Mucin. In this manner, Dry Eye Diseases can be further categorized and treated accordingly, in accordance with the type of deficiency. By performing this dry eye test, a doctor can assess the severity of dry eye, and then decide on the appropriate treatment to carry out.

Treatment of Dry Eyes

Eye Light Therapy is a new dry eye treatment for upper and lower eyelids that provides light modulation therapy with optimal power energy. This is done with the help of an intensive pulse light and low level light therapy.

Due to the patented and unique cooling module, Eye-Light simultaneously treats both lower and upper eyelids. Its only disadvantage is that it does not require the application of gel during treatment.

The Meibomian glands are treated with intense pulse light. It has been demonstrated in various neurological studies that emission of high power light pulses stimulates neurotransmitters in periorbital and cheekbone areas. By stimulating the Meibomian glands to secrete more, they increase the natural lipid flow that reduces tear evaporation.

Upon exposure to high power LED light, both eyelids are heated, which helps to increase and stabilize tear lipid layers.
