Dry Eye Assessment

Do you experience any of the following:

  • stinging, burning or scratchy sensation

  • sensitivity to light

  • eye redness

  • sensation of having something in your eyes

  • eye pain

  • watery eyes

  • difficulty wearing contact lenses

  • difficulty with nighttime driving


You may be experiencing Dry Eyes or Meibomian Gland Dysfunction, where your eyes are not producing enough tears or the oil releasing glands under your eye lids are blocked. Without treatment, chronic dry eye can severely affect the quality of your life. At Gordon Wood Eye Associates, we know that dry eye is a multifactorial disease, therefore, we believe it is crucial to determine and treat the underlying cause of your dry eye symptoms.

During your comprehensive dry eye assessment at Gordon Wood Eye Associates, diagnostic tests will measure the quantity and quality of your tears and image your meibomian glands / oil glands. These results can allow our eye care professionals to facilitate an individualized treatment plan and routine that is customized for your care.

Dry eye management may range from utilizing specific artificial tears, prescription medications, to specialized in-office treatment.
