A large part of the examination is finding out what the patient is experiencing and determining the type of dry eye causing the symptoms. We examine the surface of the eye under a microscope to look at the quantity and the quality of the tear film. Additionally, we examine the eyelids and the glands inside the eyelids to insure they are healthy.
There are a wide range of treatments ranging from over the counter products to specialty laser procedures. Many times using artificial tears and vitamin supplements can help boost the tear film. There are prescription eye drops that can aid in tear production as well as laser procedures for patients with more advanced dry eye.
Of course – stay hydrated and making sure you consume enough water each day. Additionally, take breaks from your computer and smart phone. I recommend the 20/20/20 Rule – take a 20 second break every 20 minutes and look 20 feet away and blink your eyes. Finally, wearing sunglasses is critical to protecting the surface of the eye and the eyelids from UV exposure.
I usually have many questions, and so happy with how Dr. Rosa patiently answers them all in a way that totally makes sense.
Awesome optometrist super friendly staff. Been going here for 10 plus years.
Dr Rosa is a great optometrist. He is super friendly and takes his time with you. He answers your questions and doesn't rush you through your appointment. He truly cares about his patients. The staff is always willing to help you and they are very understanding and patient when you are taking forever to decide on the right frames :0)
I picked Dr. Moffett's office because it was a smaller one. I've been to bigger offices and you feel like your a number just going in and out, you see the Dr. maybe 5 mins and you are on your way. At Dr. Moffett's they have friendly staff that really goes above and beyond to meet your needs. Dr. Moffett really takes the time to get to know you and made me feel sure that all my eye needs were met. I love my new Prodesign frames, really good quality.
OUR FOCUS ON…
Astigmatic Eye Care
Astigmatism is a very common eye condition that’s easily corrected with eyeglasses or contact lenses and on some occasions, surgery. Astigmatism is caused when your eye is not completely round. Because our bodies are not perfect, astigmatism occurs in nearly everybody to some degree but for some, not to the degree that it causes blurring…
