OUR TREATMENT OPTIONS

Dry Eye

What is Dry Eye?

Dry eye syndrome should be treated quickly and handled with care.

Sometimes our tears have difficulty providing enough nourishment and lubrication to the eye, causing burning, redness, grittiness, tearing, itching, fluctuating vision, eye fatigue, discharge, and sensitivity to wind/humidity.

Our providers are leaders who specialize in dry eye treatment. Decorated Veteran Dr. Glen Elliot and Dr. Bethany Rommel are here to listen to your challenges, and recommend a treatment plan that addresses your concerns and provides more nourishment and lubrication to your affected eyes. They use state-of-the-art technology to measure dry eye, provide a diagnosis and treat dry eye effectively.

  • Experts in care.

    Dr. Elliot has become an expert in the field, by dedicating over 10 years to studying dry eye he is able to recommend the best treatment option for each patient.

  • We believe in innovation.

    We’re committed to making the latest technology available to you when you visit Ludwick.

Treatment Options

When treating your dry eye, there are options available. The right treatment plan will be customized based on the results of your consultation and these treatment options.

  • LipiFlow

    A painless, fast in-office treatment that applies soothing heat and gentle pressure to clear the blocked glands that secrete oil in the eye and restore normal function to your meibomian glands. This twelve-minute procedure will leave you feeling better and ready to get back to life.

  • BlephEx

    BlephEx treats patients suffering from blepharitis, a chronic inflammatory disease of the eyelid caused by an overgrowth of normal bacteria living along the lashes. Symptoms can include irritation, foreign body sensation, dry or crusty eyes, swollen eyelids, watering, or eyelids that appear greasy.

    BlephEx treatment is a painless and quick in office procedure that cleans and exfoliates the eyelid and lashes and helps increase your production of natural tears. In just 4 weeks, you’ll feel better and relieved.
