20/20 Dry Eye Spa is the place to go to for all of your dry eye treatments.
At 20/20 Dry Eye Spa, we recognize how important it is to get to know each patient as an individual in order to set up the correct treatment plan. There is no one-size-fits-all, or one plan that works for everyone when it comes to treating dry eyes; every treatment plan is personalized. There are many options for treating dry eye syndrome, but unfortunately, there is no cure.
Whether the doctors are recommending lifestyle changes, supplements, or a very specific treatment, they believe in a 360 degree approach to dry eyes.
The team at 20/20 Dry Eye Spa treats the cause of the eye problem not just the symptoms. We evaluate the environment and lifestyle of a patient to see if changes can be made to reduce the symptoms of dry eyes. Once we identify the causes, a program is customized to each patient. The mode of treatment varies depending on the severity of the condition. The goal is to help our patients experience relief from the watery, itchy and painful dry eye symptoms. With the proper treatment plan in place, the team will work with the patient to maintain relief over time. Using holistic approaches, combined with recommendations to your lifestyle, we can address and treat your problems and help you function better.

The 2 main root causes of dry eye is obstruction of the meibomian glands and inflammation. Our 20/20 Dry Eye Spa offers 2 in-office procedures, Miboflo or Lipiflow, which both assists in removing meibomian gland obstruction. The most effective holistic way to alleviate inflammation is to use IPL, Intense Pulsed Light.
Our dry eye outcomes are significantly superior when both the obstruction and the inflammation are treated simultaneously during the same appointment than if they were done separately. In other words, two treatments working synergistically better together than one.
We have created special Dry Eye Spa packages to offer comprehensive treatments that include not only the Dry Eye Spa treatment itself, but also instructions, products for maintenance, after care products, dry eye scans and follow-up visit with the doctors.

What is IPL (Intense Pulsed Light)?Non-invasive treatment that uses high energy light pulses (not laser) to target inflammation in the skin and around the eyes Using IPL for treatment of dry eyes helps reduce inflammation to the meibomian glands, which are located in the eyelids and produces the oils that keep the eyes lubricated Effective therapy for those who have ocular rosacea, spider veins and rosacea Helps repair damaged cells, eradicates damaged blood vessels, and reduces inflammation to improve the function of the meibomian glands Improves tear production, making the eyes more comfortable and irritated Stimulates collagen production to improve the overall health and appearance of the skin around the eyes Eradicates bacteria and Demodex eye mites in around the eyelids
What is dry eye syndrome?Dry Eye Syndrome occurs when your eyes are not being moisturized frequently enough by tears. Ironically, the drier the eyes are, the more the cornea can become desensitized. That’s why many people get used to having chronic dry eyes. That dry eye level is now their new norm.
What causes dry eyes?Dry eyes are caused by many factors. Environment, diet, and hydration are some of the common causes. Using digital devices all day is one of the main factors contributing to dry eye syndrome.
What are some dry eye symptoms?Redness, watering, scratchiness and itchiness are common symptoms. If your eyes are exhausted at the end of the day, if you work extensively with computers/ digital devices or if you use eye drops that give you minimal relief, you likely have dry eyes.
How do dry eyes affect vision?Dry eyes can cause your vision to fluctuate, making it difficult to function in daily life. It can be debilitating if it gets severe. Get a dry eye evaluation to find out more information.
Why are my eye drops not helping with my dry eye condition?There are different layers in the eye, and your drops might be insufficient to treat the correct layer. Your eye drops may be focusing on the water layer, but will evaporate within a few seconds if your oil glands are blocked. We focus on understanding the cause of your dry eyes, to relieve the symptoms by going to the root of the problem.
Do you offer a complimentary consultation?Dry eye evaluations are typically $199. If you scheduled an eye exam as part of our other services, there is a complimentary Dry Eye scan and evaluation that is included. Please contact us for more information on pricing. Treatments vary from person to person depending on their evaluation.
How often should I have my eyes checked?We recommend having a comprehensive eye exam at least once a year. During the comprehensive eye exam, a complimentary dry eye screening is offered.
What should I expect on my dry eye examination?During your evaluation, we will perform a Lipiscan, a screening that allows us to know if your meibomian (oil) glands are healthy or not. We will evaluate the various tear layers, cornea health, lids and lashes, and your ability to blink. Our doctors will also evaluate your environment and lifestyle to see how you can make adjustments to your daily activities to help reduce your symptoms of dry eyes.
How do you cure dry eyes?There is not one cure for dry eyes as it is a multi-factorial disease of the eyes. We offer solutions and education about how to manage and maintain good eye health to reduce the symptoms of dry eyes.
What are some of the benefits of your dry eye spa treatments?Greater Eye Comfort Fewer Dry Eye Symptoms Sharper Vision Stable Vision without Fluctuation Our goal is to eliminate your symptoms so you can see more clearly and comfortably!
What should I expect from my treatment?There is not one cure for dry eyes as it is a multi-factorial disease of the eyes. We offer solutions and education about how to manage and maintain good eye health to reduce the symptoms of dry eyes.
What is a Lipiscan screening?This is a screening of the meibomian gland to structurally determine the integrity of the oil producing glands. That alone DOES NOT determine if these glands are functioning properly. A normal scan does not mean you don’t need treatment or do not have dry eyes.
Why should I go to 20/20 Dry Eye Spa?We have a holistic approach and treat not just the symptoms.

What is the best treatment for me?You need a dry eye evaluation in order for the doctor to determine the severity of dry eyes you have. Some treatments work better for people’s lifestyle as maintenance is a vital part of the management of dry eyes.
Is my dry eye cured after doing this treatment?Once treated, there is still maintenance that is needed to have minimal symptoms of dry eyes. We will educate and help evaluate your lifestyle and diet as well as having solutions to address the causes of your dry eyes.
