Dry Eye Treatment

What is Dry Eye?

Dry eye disease arises from an imbalance in the tear film's composition, specifically a deficiency in either aqueous or lipid tears. These tears, crucial fo maintaining ocular health, are produced in the mucin, water, and oil layers of the tear film, respectively.

There are multiple options for dry eye treatment. Dr. Kelley will find the treatment that is best suitable for you!

Zest Ocular Treatment

ZEST® is an innovative in-office deep cleansing procedure powered by patented ZokrexTM technology, designed to effectively remove residue from eyelids. Recognizing the vital role eyelids play in eye health, with over 85% of dry eye issues originating from them, ZEST utilizes specialized ZocuKitTM instruments and an okra-based gel for minimal discomfort and rapid results. Experience relief within approximately 15 minutes post-procedure. Dr. Kelley may suggest periodic ZEST sessions to optimize and sustain results for lasting comfort and eye health.

Punctual Plugs

Punctal plugs, tiny silicone inserts, can reduce tear loss by partially or fully occluding tear ducts, thereby retaining tears on the ocular surface.
