Surekha Parag, our Dry Eye Optometrist, is reviewing meibomian gland images that have been captured on Auckland Eye’s LipiView® machine.

This test, to measure the quality of your tears and the health of your meibomian glands, is part of comprehensive assessment that patients will receive during their first appointment at Auckland Eye’s Dry Eye Spa. Also, we may take a tiny sample of your tears using a Tearlab machine in order to measure your tear osmolarity (the saltiness of your tears), as well as measuring amount of water your tear glands are producing.

We can then determine the  likely cause of your Dry Eye and you will be provided with a tailored treatment plan. During your treatment you will have access to proven, state-of-the-art dry eye technology, including LipiFlow®, Lu menis Optima IPL and AB Max, and your treatment will be provided by our expertly trained clinical team.

Dry Eye treatment can provide a variety of benefits, some of which are:

  • Reducing dependence on lubricating eye drops
  • Aiding with the comfort of contact lens wear
  • Improving red and  ‘tired’ eye symptoms
  • Reducing sensitivity to bright light

 

Please call 0800 25 53 93 to book an assessment.
