Dr. Jeanette Lee
is passionate about treating patients
with dry eyes.
Having suffered from dry eyes since the age of 20, Dr. Lee developed a treatment program for dry eyes that is not just a passion but a necessity for her. She has made it her goal to find a solution to the cause of her problem and does not want others to suffer either.
Medically trained, Dr. Lee has a Doctor of Optometry from UC Berkeley and treats patients with eye infections, eye injuries and eye diseases such as glaucoma. For over 20 years, Dr. Lee has been specializing in the treatment of dry eyes. In 2009, she published an article in Primary Optometry News, “OD Shares Drug-free Approach to Treating Meibomian Gland Dysfunction”. This protocol in treatment is still used today.
In 2018, Dr. Jeanette Lee opened the 20/20 Dry Eye Spa to offer a soothing, comfortable and customized experience for treating dry eyes. She and her team address the condition and determine which method of treatment is best for the dry eye patients.
People travel long and far to seek relief from dry eyes and see better. 20/20 Dry Eye Spa offers proven treatments that cure the cause of dry eyes and not just the symptoms.
Because dry eye syndrome is a chronic and typically progressive condition, it is a disease that must be treated. While it won’t just get better over time, it can be managed in most cases to prevent it from being a chronic problem.
20/20 Dry Eye Spa specifically treats those who suffer from Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD), because it is one of the main culprits causing severe dry eye problems. When this gland that secretes the oils for the tears gets blocked, there isn’t sufficient oil in the tears, so the tears evaporate quickly which leads to dry eyes. The other dry eye causes need to be addressed once the MGD is managed.
Understanding Dry Eyes. A deficiency of oil, water, or mucus on the surface of your eyes causes dry eyes. Your eyes are not being moisturized by enough tears. This can be caused by contact lenses, medications, or the environment. Even if a person can make tears, the quality of tears may be poor or significantly less than normal level. The drier the eyes, the more the cornea can become desensitized, so often people get used to chronic dry eyes. Would you let your car run out of oil and not function correctly? You probably take your vehicle in for regular oil changes, so it doesn’t run dry. Treat your eyes regularly, too, and don’t let them dry out. 20/20 Dry Eye Spa treats for dry eyes, so it does not become the norm. There is no reason to live with dry eyes when there is a treatment available.
