Dry Eye Products at Yaletown Eyecare

Dry Eye Therapy
Dry eye syndrome is a common and often frustrating condition that arises when your eyes cannot produce enough tears or the tears they produce evaporate too quickly. This can lead to persistent discomfort, redness, and even blurred vision. Yaletown EyeCare understands the importance of managing dry eye symptoms to maintain a high quality of life. That’s why we offer a comprehensive range of dry eye products to help alleviate discomfort and improve eye health.

Dry Eye Syndrome: A Growing Problem in Canada

Dry eye syndrome affects many Canadians, with recent studies estimating that up to 30% of the population experiences dry eye symptoms. Factors contributing to dry eye in Canada include the country’s often harsh and dry climate, an increasingly aging population, and the prevalence of digital devices that encourage prolonged screen time. If left untreated, dry eye symptoms can significantly impact an individual’s daily activities and outdoor pursuits. It can also lead to complications such as corneal abrasions, eye infections, and, in severe cases, vision loss.

Our Dry Eye Product Categories

At Yaletown EyeCare, we offer various dry eye products to cater to individual needs and preferences. Our product range includes:
  1. Preservative-Free Artificial Tears and Lubricating Eye Drops: These over-the-counter drops help supplement your natural tear production and provide instant relief from dry eye symptoms. We retail the best drops on the market in-house.
  2. Ocular Hygiene Products: Eyelid cleansers and lid scrubs are essential for maintaining optimal eye health and comfort. They help remove debris and bacteria from the eyelid margin. We stock several types of lid hygiene products, including gels, wipes, and scrubs. Our optometrists will recommend the specific product that is best for you.
  3. Nutritional Supplements for Dry Eye Relief: Consuming omega-3 fatty acids in the form of supplements can help reduce inflammation and improve the quality of the tear film. We sell the only omega-3 supplements that are proven to help with dry eye. This company offers a 90-day guarantee of improved dry eye symptoms or your money back.
  4. Hot Compress Eye Masks: Applying a heated eye mask can relieve dry eye symptoms by promoting the release of natural oils from the meibomian gland, which provides the lipid layer of the tear film. Please note that you need 8-10 minutes of sustained heat per day for significant results. A hot tea bag or warm wet face cloth is not enough.
