Dry Eye Specialty Center

Airis Eye is proud to offer dry eye treatment for our patients. Ocular surface disease, also known as dry eye disease, can occur from certain medications, naturally by aging, or as a symptom arising from systemic diseases, such as Sjogren’s syndrome, Rheumatoid arthritis, or lupus. If you have a minor case of dry eye, you may be experiencing irritation, excessive tearing, fluctuating vision, and/or a burning sensation in your eyes.


Dry eye is one of the most prevalent eye conditions, and patients often only use artificial tears, which do not provide complete relief. If dry eye is left untreated, it can eventually lead to severely debilitating symptoms, affecting the quality of life. Early intervention is key to managing this complex and chronic disease.

Determining the Cause

Excessive dry eyes, or dry eye symptoms that go untreated, have the potential to damage eye tissue, scar your corneas, and impair your vision. Determining the cause of dry eye is the first step to proper treatment. We can help you find the right solution for you that best suits your eye health needs. As part of your comprehensive exam we will evaluate:

Cornea and conjunctiva

Quantity and quality of tear film

Secretion of meibomian glands

The rate at which tear film evaporates

Signs of allergy, inflammation, and infection of your eyes and eyelids

Treatment Options

How We Can Help

Based on your evaluation, we will formulate a personalized treatment plan. There is no quick cure for dry eye, and it may take a combination of modalities to achieve a solution for your symptoms.

MiBo Thermoflo

The MiBo Thermoflo is a therapeutic medical device providing a safe and effective alternative therapy for dry eyes. It uses a proprietary thermoelectric heat pump to help maximize liquefaction of meibum, thus improving preservation and function of the evaporative component of the tear film.


The MiBo Thermoflo supplies continuous controlled heat that is applied to the outer skin of the eye lids along with ultrasound gel for a gentle massage. The heat is absorbed deep into the tissue and breaks down the hardened lipids in the meibomian glands.
