Dry Eye Disease

Dry Eye is a common disease that occurs when your eyes don’t make enough tears, or your tears aren’t functioning properly to adequately keep your eyes moist. This can cause discomfort and vision problems. 

The following are common symptoms of dry eye listed by the National Eye Institute:

  • A scratchy feeling, like there’s something in your eye
  • Stinging or burning feelings in your eye
  • Red eyes
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Blurry vision


  • At Dr. Jaclyn Chang, Optometrist, we offer several treatment methods to help manage your dry eye symptoms and work towards treating your condition. 

Depending on the underlying cause of your dry eyes, we can offer several different treatments:

Over-the-Counter Products

    • Eye drops (lubricants)
      • Thealoz Duo
      • Systane
    • Lid Hygiene
      • Blephaclean
      • BIHOCL
    • PRN Omega-3 
    • Warm Compresses
      • Bruder Mask
      • Therapearl

 In-Office Treatment


  • Meibography allows us to evaluate the morphology of the Meibomian glands, located in the lower and upper eyelids, and to determine whether they fulfill their function of providing the necessary fats to limit tear evaporation.
  • A non-invasive technology that allows us to take images of the Meibomian glands and help your practitioner evaluate your tear film.
  • Gives us insight to the root cause of your dry eye symptoms. 

Zocular Cleanser

  • Zocular has developed an eyelid debridement procedure called ZEST that’s performed in the office to provide immediate and dramatic improvement in dry eye symptoms within minutes.


  • Warms and applies gentle pressure on the eyelids to open up blocked meibomian glands (the oil glands). This makes it easier for the glands to naturally release their oil which is so important for a good quality tear film.
  • Ultimately improves dry eye symptoms: irritation, itchiness, redness, dryness, and excessive eye watering and brings you relief.
