Do you ever wake up with your eyelids stuck together? Well now there is an in-office treatment that can be performed from the optometrists at Perception Eyecare to prevent that from happening!

Over 80% of dry eye issues start with issues at the eyelid margin. The bacteria, oil residue, dirt and dead skin at the eyelids can cause the eyes to water, itch, burn, and make the eyes feel dry.

We provide an in office deep cleaning dry eye treatment called ZEST. Zest (Zocular Eyelid System Treatment) works by gently exfoliating the eyelids to restore the natural state of the eyelids. By cleaning the eyelid margins which opens up the meibomian gland, it helps release oils into the eye that are required for a healthy tear film and reduce symptoms of dry eye.

After the in office treatment, your Hamilton optometrists Dr. Shinger and Dr. Viswanathan will recommend gentle and effective home treatments to clean and keep the bacteria away from the lids that are anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant.

Don’t just settle for artificial tears or baby shampoo for your dry eye issues! At the Perception Eyecare we offer the best for our patients from Hamilton, Stoney Creek, Binbrook, Ancaster, Burlington, Grimsby and the surrounding area. Contact Perception Eyecare in Stoney Creek for your Dry Eye Evaluation today!
