What Is A  Dry Eye?

Eye Watering and Excessive Tearing: Dry Eye
Oddly enough, if you are prone to excessive eye watering or tearing, you might actually have a condition called dry eye syndrome. Dry eye occurs when the eyes do not produce sufficient tears or the tears evaporate too quickly.

There are two types of dry eye:

Treatment for Dry Eye

For some patients, over-the-counter or prescription eye drops will provide relief for dry eye symptoms. However, if these are ineffective you may need to have an eye doctor assess your situation and determine the root cause of your dry eye. Knowing the reason for your dry eye symptoms is the only way to successfully treat this condition.

How LipiFlow Works?

The LipiFlow Thermal Pulsation System unblocks the eyelid glands, allowing them to resume production of complex natural oils. The treatment includes the application of precisely-controlled heat to the inner eyelid. The single-use activator applies adaptive pressure to stimulate the production of oils for tear film.

Is LipiFlow Right for You?

The LipiFlow treatment may not be right for your eyes. During an eye exam we can perform a series of evaluations to determine the root cause of your dry eye. We will use the non-invasive LipiView interferometer to assess your tear film and the Meibomian Gland EvaluatorTM to examine the quantity and quality of the oils.

Our dry eye specialists can perform the virtually painless LipiFlow treatment right in our office. Contact us today to schedule an eye exam to see if LipiFlow can provide relief for your dry eye symptoms.

Patient Testimonials

If you have a baby with eye problems, this is the place to go and Dr. Patrick Arnold is the man to see. Our nine-month-old son has exotropia and today he had the surgery to help fix it. Everything went as perfectly as any parent sending their baby into surgery could possibly hope for. I’m mostly writing this review as a thank you to the nurses we worked with when we were in there.

I do a lot of outdoor activities in Colorado and with the dry air, my contact lenses were almost unbearable at times. That led me to looking in having LASIK surgery. The process was smooth and convenient. Now I can enjoy my activities with clear vision and pain free.

Dr. Arnold has been our saving grace with our son. We were referred to him by our eye doctor in Cheyenne, WY when we could get to the bottom of why my son’s eye wasn’t healing from what we thought were scratches. He has taken such great care of our son. He is so patient and makes the young patients and their parents feel as ease. So thankful for him.

As a radiologist, my career depends on my vision. I had always wanted to rid myself of my glasses but was hesitant to take the plunge. After several of my partners had the procedure done and reported great results, I had my LASIK done with Dr. Robinson. After wearing glasses for 35 years, it is wonderful to be able to see the world without them.
