What Is Dry Eye?
Dry eye disease happens when your tears can’t adequately lubricate your eyes. Either your eyes are not producing enough tears, or the quality of your tears is insufficient.
Your tear film is essential to maintaining moisture. There are 3 layers that make up your tears, each with a specific function.
- Oily layer: prevents the tears from evaporating too quickly
- Watery layer: keeps your eye hydrated
- Mucus layer: ensures tears stick to the eye
If one of these layers is affected, you can experience dry eye symptoms.

Dry Eye Solutions
At Eyesthetics on Sheppard, we offer effective solutions to bring you comfort. Our trusted team will accurately assess your eyes and recommend the dry eye therapy option best for your unique needs.
TempSure Envi is an effective treatment for meibomian gland dysfunction. It uses radiofrequency to gently heat the skin and eyelids to help melt thick oil that may clog the meibomian glands.
Once healthy oil is introduced back into the tear film, your tears won’t evaporate as quickly, helping to relieve you of your dry eye symptoms.
An added bonus of using TempSure Envi? You may leave our office with your eyes looking smoother and healthier because it triggers the body’s natural response to produce more collagen.
Icon Intense Pulsed Light Therapy
Intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy is another effective treatment for meibomian gland dysfunction.
Icon IPL is different from laser treatments because it uses a broad range of wavelengths of intense light. The light activates the meibomian glands to produce more oil and improve dry eye symptoms.
