Dry Eye Treatment
for Winston-Salem, NC
What is Dry Eye?
Dry eye syndrome is exactly what it sounds like: your eyes lack moisture, which causes your eyes to become dry. This occurs when your eyes don’t produce enough tears, or your tears are too low quality to lubricate your eyes properly, which is why you can have watery eyes that still feel dry!
This lack of moisture leads to uncomfortable symptoms like itching, burning, redness, light sensitivity, and blurry vision. Dry eye can be a chronic problem, but our experts at C Distinctive Eyewear can offer you the right dry eye treatment so you can start seeing clearly and comfortably again!

Advanced Technology for Dry Eyes: Marco Equinox Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT)
At C Eyewear, we’re proud users of Equinox Low Level Light Therapy or (LLLT). This innovative device applies light and heat energy directly to your eyelids to reduce inflammation and stimulate the glands responsible for natural oil production — clogged meibomian glands are a leading cause of dry eye. This non-invasive procedure is quick and painless, with results you may notice after the first session!
Advanced in-office treatments for Dry Eye: iLux®
iLux® is a quick, in-office procedure we like to use to treat dry eye caused by clogged meibomian glands. We start by identifying clogged oil glands in your eyelid and then use the iLux® device to apply light-based heat and pressure to the area. The treatment will gently melt the oil so it can naturally release from your eyelids. By watching which glands express the oil, we’re able to target difficult areas as needed to ensure your treatment is effective!
In-office Blepharitis treatment: BlephEx®
For dry eye cases caused by blepharitis, or the inflammation of oil glands in your eyelids, we may recommend one or multiple in-office BlephEx® treatments. BlephEx® is a device with a soft, medical grade sponge that we carefully spin along your eyelids and lashes to cleanse and clear excess oils, biofilms, and bacteria form your eyelids. Within just a few minutes, this painless treatment can clear up blockages and provide you with lasting relief from your dry eye symptoms
