What is Dry Eye?

Dry eye is a common eye condition that occurs when the eyes do not produce enough tears or tears evaporate too quickly. If left untreated, it can lead to discomfort, irritation and possible damage to the front surface of the eye.

Causes of Dry Eye


Complaints of dry eyes increase as we get older, especially becoming more common in people over the age of 50. This is due to a natural decrease in tear production.


Women are more prone to developing dry eye, especially during hormonal changes such as pregnancy, menopause or when taking birth control pills.

Environmental Factors

Prolonged exposure to wind, smoke or dry climates can contribute to evaporation of tears and lead to dry eye symptoms.

Prolonged Digital Screen Use

When we are constantly looking at the screen, the number of blinks decreases and tear evaporation increases.

Systemic Diseases

Conditions such as thyroid disorders, diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis can increase the risk of developing dry eye.


Some medications can reduce tear production, including antihistamines, decongestants, antidepressants and some blood pressure medications.

Kuru Göz Symptoms

Burning or Stinging Sensation:
People with dry eye often experience a burning or stinging sensation in their eyes, which can be exacerbated by environmental factors.

Dry eyes can appear red due to irritation and inflammation caused by insufficient lubrication.

Blurred Vision:
Inadequate tear production can cause blurred or wavy vision, affecting daily activities such as reading or using a computer.

Sensitivity to Light:
Dry eye can increase sensitivity to light, making it uncomfortable to be in brightly lit environments.

Eye Fatigue:
Prolonged periods of focusing, such as reading or looking at a screen, can lead to eye fatigue and discomfort.

Treatment Options

Over-the-counter artificial tears can bring temporary relief by moisturizing the eyes.

Cyclosporine or cortisone drops can be scheduled for a short or longer duration.

Environmental adjustments such as using a humidifier, taking breaks during screen time and staying hydrated can help alleviate dry eye symptoms.

Applying warm compresses to the eyes can help stimulate tear production and reduce irritation.

Adding omega-3 fatty acids to your diet or taking supplements can contribute to better eye health.

Innovative treatments using technology to increase natural tear fluid:

LipiFlow & IPL

LipiFlow: Innovation in Tear Movie Management

LipiFlow is an FDA-approved device designed to treat meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD), a leading cause of evaporative dry eye. MGD occurs when the meibomian glands, which are responsible for producing the lipid (oil) component of tears, become blocked or dysfunctional. LipiFlow uses thermal vibration technology to effectively open and express the blockage of the meibomian glands by applying heat and gentle pressure to the eyelids. This process stimulates the production of high-quality tears and helps restore the natural balance of the tear film. Just as tartar is constantly forming on our teeth, the development of plugs in the meibomian glands is constantly being created by the body and can eventually lead to the loss of the meibomian glands.

Targeted Treatment

LipiFlow addresses meibomian gland dysfunction to improve the quality of our natural tears. Instead of the temporary effects of drops, it provides support for the root cause. It targets the root cause of the type of dry eye caused by evaporation, especially in computer users.

Non Invasive

The procedure is non-invasive, meaning it is performed with virtually no contact with the eye and involves a comfortable, in-office treatment that takes about 12 minutes per eye.

Long Lasting Relief

Many patients experience sustained improvement in dry eye symptoms after a single LipiFlow treatment. Periodic Lipiflow may be necessary in some bodies during periods of frequent recurrence of plugs. Just as dental care and tartar removal are performed periodically, lid care with Lipiflow and renewal of tear support is especially important before laser surgery and cataract surgery. Keratoconus patients also rub their eyes less thanks to lipiflow.

IPL: Utilizing Light for Tear Film Stability

Often associated with cosmetic dermatology, IPL has found a new application in ophthalmology for the treatment of dry eye. This light-based therapy works by targeting abnormal blood vessels and inflammation in the eyelids that can contribute to dry eye symptoms. IPL is particularly effective for patients with MGD and ocular rosacea, a skin condition often associated with dry eye.

Anti-Inflammatory Effects

IPL reduces inflammation and dilates blood vessels, improving the overall health of the eyelids.

Comprehensive Treatment

IPL addresses not only meibomian gland dysfunction but also associated factors such as redness and irritation.

Minimal Discomfort

The procedure is well tolerated by most patients and causes minimal discomfort during and after treatment.

Combining LipiFlow and IPL: A Synergistic Approach

For patients with both meibomian gland dysfunction and inflammation, combining LipiFlow and IPL can provide a synergistic effect. The dual approach offers a comprehensive solution for long-term relief by targeting multiple factors contributing to dry eye.


Dry eye is a common condition that can significantly impact daily life. Understanding the causes, recognizing symptoms and exploring appropriate treatment options are crucial steps to manage and alleviate the discomfort associated with dry eye. If you suspect you have dry eye, it is essential to consult an eye health professional for an accurate diagnosis and personalized treatment plan.
