Dry Eye Treatment

Dry Eye Treatment

With Dry Eye Syndrome on the increase, Mackinley Optical has a number of treatment options available. These include:
Eye Drops
Not all lubricating eye drops are created equal! The optimal choice of lubricating eye drops will depend on the severity of the Dry Eye Syndrome. We offer special eye drops and over the counter lubricants.

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)
The E Eye Medical Grade IPL device is the only Intense Pulse Light (IPL) device in the world. It is designed to treat Dry Eye Syndrome by stimulating the Meibomian Glands. The role of the Meibomian Glands is to secrete an oily substance which prevents the evaporation of tears.

The E Eye treatment stimulates the Meibomian glands and returns them to their normal tear production. Mackinley Optical was the first Canberra practice to install the E Eye.
