It was uncomfortable and I know first hand from talking with patients about dry eye how severe the symptoms can become and I did not want to get to a point where I could longer help my eyes.

โ €
So I knew I had to act immediately...โ €

A brush is used to clean along your lash line to clean and remove any oil, debris... etc Is it uncomfortable? Not exactly my eyes just naturally fluttered as it is not everyday that my lashes are being cleaned.ย

Think of it like a spa treatment for your eyes, it was relaxing and soothing. No pain, no discomfort... I just kept my eyes closed and enjoyed the thermal treatment.ย 
โ €
Of course this is just the first step what about after care?โ €

- important to follow instructions provided by your Optometrist. Compress should be continuously done and no you donโ€™t stop just because your eyes begin to feel better. This is such an easy step in helping to combat against dry eye and you can get a compress mask anywhere so it is very accessible to include into your nighttime routine. โ €

- My absolute favorite eye drops are by optaseย everything from this company is amazing including their dry eye spray. The drops are a little bit thicker than the drops I have used in the past, but they are perfect. As soon as I put a drop in my eyes feel a million times better so now I always keep them in my purse so that I never have to worry about not having them.ย

- My list wouldnโ€™t be complete without my We Love Eyes lid foaming cleanser. I use this nightly to ensure my lids are perfectly clean. Before I cleanse I also use their makeup tea tree oil remover, using the right products when removing your makeup makes all the difference and trust me We love eyes has you coverd!

- Dry eye but make it glam... because I want to ensure I take my omega daily I found a very chic pill box. Now I never have to worry about forgetting!โ €
โ €
Just by being proactive and following the steps provided by my Optometrist I have been able to ensure that my eyes stay healthy and moisturized. โ €
โ €
I have now also been able to talk to patients more I depth about what they will experience during their treatment and how to be proactive in taking the correct steps to ensure that they can have some control, and improve their dry eye.

Dry eye symptoms will not simply disappear over night, it takes time and commitment to the right steps to ensure success. See your Optometrist, ask what options are available to you and follow the instructions given.
