Dr. Schachter provides many services to help patients find relief from dry eye and other conditions, including:
- Lipiflow: Lipiflow is a new procedure designed to treat the root cause of Evaporative Dry Eye: blocked Meibomian glands. Opening and clearing these blocked glands can allow them to resume natural production of lipids (oils) needed for a healthy tear film.
- Blephex: BlephEx® is a painless in-office procedure performed by your eyecare professional. A revolutionary new patented BlephEx® handpiece is used to very precisely and carefully, spin a medical grade micro-sponge along the edge of your eyelids and lashes, removing scurf and debris and exfoliating your eyelids.
- Demodex Treatment: Along with several colleagues, Dr. Schachter has developed a technique to get demodex infestations under control. This in-office procedure uses tea tree oil to eliminate demodex.
