Do you have Dry Eye Disease? You are not alone.
Dry Eye Disease is a chronic, typically progressive ocular condition that can impact a person’s quality of life.
At Prairie Eye Care, we focus on the cause of the condition, getting to the root of the problem and from there working towards improving a patient's daily symptoms.
Our goal is to improve your tear quality and production; as well as the overall appearance and feeling your eyes.
Dry eye affects everyone to varying degrees. People suffering from chronic and severe symptoms need a customized plan for treatment.
At Prairie Eye Care we have a number of treatments that can be used to improve your discomfort.
Red eyes, watery eyes, itchy eyes, blurred vision, stinging/ painful eyes and a gritty/ sandy feeling.
The optometrists at Prairie Eye Care are able to evaluate your eyes, check for ocular surface disease, inflammation and tear insufficiency, all related to Dry Eye Disease.
Our optometrists have been invited to national dry eye events and featured in local magazines. The customized care you receive from your Prairie Eye Care optometrist makes a big difference in the success of managing your dry eye condition.
Manitoba winters can make it tough on all Winnipeggers to manage ocular comfort.
Environment, age, screen time, along with lifestyle and occupational demands can affect your tear film.
Additionally, medical conditions like Sjogren’s, Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA), other autoimmune diseases, and medications like diuretics, estrogen management (and many others) can affect the severity of your dry eye symptoms.
Comprehensive Dry Eye treatment often involves a combination of methods.
Prairie eye care focuses on the newest technology and research to manage the disease process. All too often patients, use over the counter drops or home remedies that do no address all their symptoms or get to the root of the dry eye condition.
A visit with an experienced optometrist with access to state of the art equipment and therapies, is important to managing your Dry Eye.
