Q&A with Dr. H

Dr. Harmer Answers Your Eyecare Questions

I spend all day in a heated office and my eyes feel dry and gritty. What can I do?

You need to be evaluated to see what the cause is for the dryness and gritty feeling . Your tear quality needs to be determined, because if your tear quality is below normal, you will feel uncomfortable with any extended use of your eyes such as reading or using your computer. After we evaluate the cause of your condition we can then prescribe the best treatment option which can include over the counter eye drops, prescription eye drops such as Restasis, punctal occlusion and Lipiflow. Call our office to schedule an appointment.

LipiFlow ®– Innovative Dry Eye Treatment

LipiFlow by TearScienceLipiFlow ® is a new treatment for dry eye that restores the lipid layer of the tear film, so the tears function better. Developed by TearScience, the sterile lid warmer and eyecup apply a combination of heat and pressure to the eyes for less than 15 minutes at a time, under constant monitoring by an eye doctor. The procedure is not painful, and enables the tear glands to secrete good quality tears. Carteret Eye Care Associates is one of 5 practices in NJ equipped to offer this procedure in our Carteret, NJ office. Read More Here
