  • Specialized Equipment: Diagnosing the cause of dry eye disease is an important step in the treatment process. If dry eyes are caused by a gland disorder or blockage, you have to treat that issue rather than the normal symptoms of dry eye disease. Some of the specialized tools include dyes used to show blockages and other issues in the eyelid, LipiView Ocular Surface Interferometer, LipiFlow Thermal Pulsation System and other specialized tools that help diagnose and treat dry eye disease and related eye issues.
  • After Eye Surgery Treatment: If you have a surgery, one of the after effects can be dry eye disease. If you go to a clinic that has a specialized dry eye area, then your entire treatment can be in one place. This means you can get dry eye recommendations, eye exams and all follow ups in the same location, which can be very convenient. When you go to an optometrist who is trained and specializes in dry eye, they know the latest in technology, drops and vitamins that can have immediate relief from annoying dry eye symptoms such as red eyes, itchy eyes and tearing.
  • Shop for Dry Eye Supplies: Apex Vision carries a wide variety of dry eye products and treatment supplies on hand from over the counter topical drops to nutraceuticals and vitamins developed to treat Dry Eye disease.
