What is The Best Treatment for Dry Eye in Jacksonville

Request Appointment

Do you often find yourself reaching for eye drops throughout the day to relieve dry, itchy eyes? Dry eyes are a common complaint for many people, especially in the hot Jacksonville area. Artificial tears and warm compresses may provide temporary relief, but they don’t address the underlying cause of dry eyes. If at-home remedies aren’t providing sufficient relief, you may need more advanced treatment. Keep reading to learn more about this condition and a cutting-edge treatment option we offer at Baymeadows Vision Center in Jacksonville.  

What is dry eye? 

Dry eye, also known as dry eye syndrome, happens when your eyes don’t make enough tears to keep them moist, or when your tears evaporate too quickly. This can lead to symptoms such as redness, burning, itching, irritation, light sensitivity, a gritty feeling in your eyes (like you have sand in them), and blurry vision. If left untreated, dry eye can impact your daily life and overall eye health. It can also lead to serious complications and even damage the surface of your eyes in severe cases.  

TempSure Envi dry eye treatment 

If it feels like you’ve already tried every dry eye treatment out there, from artificial tears to heated eye masks, don’t give up hope just yet.  Chronic dry eye might not go away with at-home treatments, but that doesn’t mean you have to live in discomfort. For severe cases of dry eye, we offer TempSure Envi at Baymeadows Vision Center in Jacksonville. 

TempSure Envi is a non-invasive treatment that uses radiofrequency technology to gently heat the skin around your eyes and stimulate collagen production. Not only does this help improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, but it also helps increase tear production and reduce inflammation in the eyes. This dual benefit makes TempSure Envi a great option for those looking to address both their dry eye symptoms and signs of aging. 

The procedure 

During a TempSure Envi session at Baymeadow Vision Center, you can sit back and relax while our eye care professional gently glides the device over your skin around the eyes. The treatment is painless and requires no downtime, so you can return to your normal activities immediately afterward. Many patients report feeling immediate relief from their dry eye symptoms after just one session. 

If you’re struggling with dry eye, our dry eye specialists in Jacksonville can help! In addition to TempSure Envi, we offer a range of other treatment options, including prescription eye drops and lifestyle changes. Give us a call today to schedule an appointment and let us help you find the best treatment for long-lasting relief.
