Stop Suffering and Train Better
Whether you are a serious competitor or just a weekend warrior, seeing better is vital. A long day exposed to the elements, such as wind, sun, or dust can leave you with burning, sore, itchy, or scratchy eyes or even reduce your ability to wear contacts. Watery eyes are common with cycling and running. Sensitivity to sunlight also reduces performance. Wind can impact and affect the quality of workouts, too. Increased time outdoors or sweat can block up oil gland pores and contribute to dry eyes.
Be more comfortable with outdoor exercise when you treat your dry eyes. Visit the 20/20 Dry Eye Spa. Be seen, get evaluated, start treatment and maintain your eyes. Improve your performance.
Don’t let dry eyes interfere with your activities.
PROBLEM: Lisa L. came to the 2020 Dry Eye Spa seeking relief from constantly watering eyes for the past 3 years. She is an ultra-marathon runner who wears wraparound sunglasses to prevent the wind from causing more watery eyes and carries a towel to dry them.
At work, she constantly held a tissue to wipe away tears. Her eyes were red and constantly irritated. She used allergy drops to help with irritation and dryness, but they provided little relief and did not solve the problem.
RESULTS: Lisa met with the team and was diagnosed with dry eyes. She began the Miboflo treatment and has reported amazing results. Lisa says, “I still carry a towel when running, but I rarely use it to wipe my eyes.” The treatments have improved life at work, too. Lisa adds, “I appreciate being able to talk to clients without worrying about constantly wiping my eyes during meetings.
PROBLEM: Elisa R. came in and wanted LASIK surgery, because she loves backpacking, the outdoor life, and exercise. During the LASIK consultation, her prescription was fluctuating due to dryness, and she was diagnosed with severe dry eyes. After she had the first treatment, her eyes felt cooler, lighter, and much more lubricated. She did not realize how many daily symptoms were related to dry eyes and concluded that she’d had dryness for years. When wearing contacts, her eyes would feel scratchy. She tried blinking to make her lenses feel more comfortable and to see better. She never tried using eye drops.
RESULTS: Following her treatments, Elisa says, “People
have commented on how I look more awake and how fresh I look. My vision has improved significantly when wearing contacts.”
Her contact lens comfort has improved. Because she treated her dry eye condition prior to LASIK surgery, her recovery post-surgery was a breeze. She did not have the normal symptoms of dryness and
irritation that others post-LASIK surgery patients experience.
Elisa is now in our maintenance program. This is an important part to ensure continuing eye comfort so that a person’s lifestyle keeps improving.
Seeing better improves all aspects of your life.
