What Is Dry Eye?
Dry Eye Disease is a multifactorial condition of the ocular surface where the eyes do not produce enough tears or when the tears evaporate too quickly. Insufficient and/or poor quality tears lead to inflammation and possible permanent damage to the ocular surface.
The tear film plays a crucial role in maintaining the health and lubrication of the eyes. It consists of three layers: an outer oily layer, a middle watery layer, and an inner mucous layer. This tear film helps protect the ocular surface, nourish the cornea, and provide clear vision by maintaining a smooth and lubricated environment. In Dry Eye Disease, there is an imbalance of the tear film, resulting in inadequate lubrication and increased evaporation of tears.
Our goal is to support these ingredients and stabilize your tear film. We customize our approach based on your needs, even as they change.
Common Dry Eye Symptoms
The symptoms you experience may differ depending on what type of dry eye you have, but the most common include:
- Burning sensations
- Light sensitivity
- Difficulty wearing contacts
- Blurry vision
- Eye fatigue
- Stringy mucus
- Flakes around the eyelash (blepharitis)
Prokera is an amniotic membrane that is placed on the eye(s) to promote healing and regeneration of damaged or diseased ocular surfaces. The amniotic membrane contains various beneficial components, such as growth factors, cytokines, and extracellular matrix proteins with regenerative and anti-inflammatory properties.Prokera offers several advantages as a treatment option. It can provide immediate relief and protection to the ocular surface, and its amniotic membrane component contributes to the restoration of healthy tissue.Additionally, Prokera eliminates the need for frequent eye drops and provides a controlled environment for healing.
TearCare is an advanced technology-based treatment for dry eye disease and meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD).By targeting the meibomian glands, TearCare improves the quality and quantity of the oily layer of tears, which can lead to better lubrication and reduced dry eye symptoms. This treatment can help alleviate symptoms of dryness, grittiness, burning, and blurred vision associated with dry eye disease and MGD.
How We Can Help
Dry eye is usually a chronic condition that can develop due to:
- Poor air quality
- Eyelid conditions
- Overall health concerns.
Severe dry eye could lead to complications like corneal damage, frequent eye infections, and a lower quality of life.
Once we determine what may be causing your symptoms, we can personalize a plan to stabilize your tear film and soothe your eyes.
Autologous Blood Serum Eye Drops
Autologous Blood Serum Eye Drops are made from the patient’s own blood serum. They are typically prescribed for individuals with severe or chronic ocular surface diseases that have not responded well to traditional treatments.
Autologous blood serum contains a variety of beneficial components, including growth factors, vitamins, electrolytes, and enzymes, which can help promote the healing and regeneration of the ocular surface. These components are naturally present in the body and are thought to provide a more biologically compatible and effective treatment compared to artificial eye drops.
Cequa/Xiidra/Restasis are prescription eye drops that may be prescribed to help increase the eyes’ natural ability to produce tears and to help calm the inflammation by stopping the release of inflammatory proteins.
Cequa/Xiidra/Restasis are used for aqueous deficiency / inflammatory dry eye
Deep Eyelid Cleaning
Nulids/Zest are designed to clean and exfoliate the eyelid margins to reduce signs and symptoms associated with blepharitis and dry eye. It is clinically proven to improve tear film quality by improve the the health and function of the meibomian glands.
IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) therapy
IPL therapy aims to reduce inflammation, improve the function of the meibomian glands, and increase the quality and quantity of the oil layer in tears. By addressing the underlying causes of dry eye associated with MGD and blepharitis (Acne Rosacea, Demodex), IPL can help alleviate symptoms such as dryness, discomfort, redness, and blurry vision.
Multiple IPL sessions are typically required to achieve optimal results. The exact number of treatments may vary depending on the individual’s condition and response to therapy.
Punctal Plugs, also known as lacrimal plugs, are small devices inserted into the tear ducts to help retain tears on the surface of the eye. They are used as a treatment option for individuals with dry eye syndrome or other conditions that result in insufficient tear production or excessive tear drainage.
Punctal plugs work by blocking or partially occluding the tear ducts, thereby reducing the drainage of tears and keeping them on the ocular surface for a longer period.
Scleral lenses are specialized contact lenses that are often used as a treatment option for individuals with dry eye syndrome. Unlike traditional contact lenses that rest on the cornea, scleral lenses vault over the cornea and rest on the white part of the eye called the sclera. They create a fluid-filled chamber between the lens and the cornea, providing several benefits for individuals with dry eyes.

Our Google Reviews And Testimonials
I cannot express in words the efficacy and professionalism of Dr. Pham however, I will try. I have a serious eye condition: keratoconus and a very extreme case at that. Unfortunately, eyeglasses are not an option for me therefore contacts are my only means for sight. I’ve always lived with mediocre contact fitting and lens prescription. For the first time in years I was able to see 20/20 because of Dr. Pham’s mastery of her craft. It wasn’t easy for her, during the exam she went above and beyond unsatisfied and unacceptable of any result but perfection for my sight. Her prowess of due diligence was as if it were her own eyesight she was correcting. I wish I met her years ago.
I was very pleased with the professional care received at my initial appointment! Dr. Pham explained everything in detail and Angelica was very helpful in assisting me selecting my frame. Even without insurance it was very affordable. Definitely going back for my annual check up.
Si necesitan un medico para revisar sus ojos la Dra Pham es la mejor opción. Es muy profesional y explica todo en detalle.
I would 11/10 recommend Eyedeal Eyecare. The office is absolutely beautiful, uses the most current technology, and has a large variety of stylish frames to choose from. Dr. Pham is not your average doctor, she goes above and beyond to make sure you have the best experience. She is patient, kind, and extremely thorough. Angelica was so sweet and knowledgeable, she definitely made the process of choosing a pair of frames easier. We could not have asked for a better experience and will definitely be returning for all our future eye care needs!
