Dry Eye Management at Dunkirk Vision

At Dunkirk Vision, we understand the challenges and discomfort that dry eye syndrome can bring to your life. Our dedicated team of eye care professionals is committed to providing comprehensive solutions to alleviate your dry eye symptoms and improve your ocular health and enhance your vision. We offer a range of innovative treatments and products, such as Lumis Optilight IPL, TearCare, MiBo Thermoflo, diagnostic imaging of the glands (Meibography), a thorough tear film assessment and the testing of inflammatory markers. Moreover, we encourage the use of eye-safe cosmetics, including the renowned brand "Eyes Are the Story."​​​​​​​


Lumenis Optilight IPL

Lumenis Optilight IPL is a cutting-edge treatment for dry eye. The Lumenis Optilight is the first IPL for dry eyes that has been approved by the FDA. It works by reducing inflammatory mediators, closes abnormal blood vessels, kills micro-organisms including demodex and melts meibum, easing manual expression of the oil producing glands of our eyelids. It can also reduce dark circles around the eyes and stimulate collagen to reduce the appearance of minor wrinkles. This Intense Pulsed Light therapy stimulates the glands in your eyelids to produce a healthier lipid layer for better tear quality. It is a non-invasive, painless procedure that can provide long-lasting relief from dry eye symptoms.



TearCare is another advanced solution we offer at Dunkirk Vision. It is a customizable, in-office treatment that effectively targets the root causes of dry eye. TearCare helps to unblock and restore the function of the Meibomian glands, ensuring your eyes produce the necessary oils for a healthy tear film.


MiBo Thermoflo

MiBo Thermoflo is a revolutionary treatment that provides a gentle massage and heat therapy to open clogged glands and improve the quality of your natural tears. By unclogging these glands, MiBo Thermoflo helps reduce irritation, itching, and blurred vision associated with dry eyes. Many say that it is like a spa-like experience.


Diagnostic Imaging of Glands (Meibography) and Inflammatory Markers

We use state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging techniques like Meibography to visualize and assess the health of your Meibomian glands. This detailed imaging helps us customize your treatment plan effectively. Additionally, we look for inflammatory markers to identify underlying issues causing dry eye, allowing for more precise and targeted treatment.
