Exploring Dry Eye Treatments:

Finding the most suitable treatment for dry eyes is essential for lasting relief and optimal eye health. Let's explore a few effective options to help you regain comfort and clarity in your vision.

  • Comfort and Clarity with Specialized Contact Lenses

    Contact lenses have emerged as a popular choice for dry eye sufferers. Specifically designed soft contact lenses can help maintain a stable tear film, reducing friction between the eyelids and the cornea.

    Contact lenses for dry eyes retain moisture and provide ongoing hydration, offering comfort and improving vision. They are a convenient option that can significantly alleviate dry eye symptoms.

  • Instant Relief with Lubricating Eye Drops

    One of the most straightforward and accessible solutions for dry eye is using artificial tears and lubricating eye drops, available over the counter. Adding moisture to the eyes, these products offer temporary relief and comfort whenever needed.

    In severe cases, prescription atropine eye drops may be recommended by an eye doctor to provide targeted relief for your dry eye condition.

  • Non-Invasive IPL Therapy for Chronic Dry Eyes

    Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment is another effective solution for chronic dry eyes. This non-invasive procedure uses precisely calibrated light pulses to target and reduce inflammation and eliminate demodex in and around the meibomian glands. These glands are responsible for producing the oil layer of the tear film. IPL therapy can improve the quantity and quality of tears, offering long-term relief. IPL therapy is an appealing option for those seeking a non-surgical approach.

  • Innovative Radiofrequency Treatment for Lasting Relief

    Radiofrequency treatment is another cutting-edge option for effectively managing dry eyes. This procedure involves the application of radiofrequency energy to the meibomian glands, stimulating oil production and enhancing tear stability.

    Radiofrequency treatment offers lasting relief from dry eye symptoms and can significantly improve overall eye comfort. Radiofrequency treatment is worth exploring for individuals seeking a non-invasive and sustainable solution.

I was in Orlando working & lost a nose pad off of my glasses. Dr Smith's office was the closest eye... care place so I went in without an appointment. I told the young lady at the counter what happened & she took my glasses & came back with 2 new nose pads & wouldn't let me pay her for them. Thank you so much, I wish I'd got the young ladies name but she's a keeper.

Growing up on Long Island, I'm more used to a family run business than a chain of stores. Finding Or... lando Eyecare was very surprising and refreshing. Everyone was so kind, courteous and professional. Very glad I found this place! I ended up staying an extra 20 mins just to chat with the staff about the family who ran the place for years. Like stepping back in time...in the best possible way! 5 stars all the way!!

I started going to Orlando Eye Care at least 25 years ago when then Dr. Devine was the doctor. I was... there as Dr. Smith started to do exams and Dr. Devine would be in the office and I saw the smooth transition. I never experienced any unprofessionalism. The personable care is absolutely wonderful. Dr. Smith and his quirky self made visits wonderful. The office staff was always amazing. I'm super thankful to know that such a place still exists in a world of so many changes. My insurance changed many times. I now have insurance that has Orlando Eye Care In-Network! Yaay! Thank you Dr. Smith, Mary, and Staff! C.Burke

Great experience, Dr. Smith and Mary are awesome, very friendly staff. Doesn't feel like a revolving... door chain store where they just try to get you in and out, feels like home. I will be back.
- Jul. 03, 2018
Although they were not able to repair my glasses (frames have been discontinued) their professionali... sm and courtesy were outstanding if it wasn't for the fact I was on vacation and not from the area they would become my primary care when it comes to eyesight

I have been a customer of Orlando Eyecare for serveral years and trust in Dr. R. Kirk Smith and his ... staff. They are through and quickly outfit you with not just a pair of glasses, but the right glasses that match you and your face. Lisa, makes you feel she is there just for you and the other staff works to insure you get the most for you dollar. I highly recommend their services!

Honestly, the best eye care staff I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Sarah took care of me fro... m soup to nuts. Very patient with me and my very picky change of minds. Prices are VERY good and exceptionally reasonable. Highly recommended, but you should definitely make time to speak with Sarah. Might even want to bring her Starbucks when you show up! Works wonders with appointments!

Absolutely LOVE the Staff at Orlando Eye Care. Everybody is super friendly and knowledgeable. I woul... d never trust anybody else with my Eyes!

I LOVE coming here. They always have the cutest glasses and the best help! Getting new glasses is my... favorite day of the year because of them.
- Sep. 15, 2016
I regret the day that, due to Orlando Eyecare not being a member of the Humana (my new health care i... nsurer) network, I was unable to continue my 36 year association with Drs. Devine and Smith. The excellent personalized service, along with a caring office staff, fully met my needs over the many years, and I hope that one fine day I can once again benefit from your service, as I am totally dissatisfied with the alternatives that I have been forced to use.

Been going there for years. Even though I moved to Clermont 2 years ago, I continue to make the tri... p to Orlando to see Dr. Smith and his staff.
