7 ways to treat dry eye

There are many medications and procedures available to treat dry eye, so here are the 7 ways to treat dry eye. Are your eyes reddish and itchy? Can’t bear the pain and burning sensation in your eyes? This could mean you have dry eye Disease, which blurs vision, is uncomfortable and unattractive, and also causes significant damage and scar the cornea.

Healthy eye vs dry eye
  1. Artificial tears

Artificial tears are eyedrops used to lubricate dry eyes and help maintain moisture on the outer surface of your eyes

For mild cases of dry eyes caused by computer use, reading, schoolwork and other situational causes, the best dry eye treatment may simply be frequent use of artificial tears or other lubricating eye drops.

It is probably the most common medication to dry eyes. It helps lubricate the eyes and treat irritation, dryness, and inflammation. While it can relieve some of the common symptoms, it will not be able to deal with the underlying cause of dry eyes. Look for preservative-free drops, especially when using multiple drops, or using them more than four time per day. Good drops like Hylo-Forte and Novatears are very useful together, but you need to instill them about five minutes apart, so they don’t dilute. Use Novatears last because it’s an oily drop and you want to keep this oily layer on top.                 

2. Cyclosporine (Cequa, Restasis)

Allergan eye drop formulation to treat dry eye disease

Instead of OTC artificial tears, your eye doctor might recommend daily use of a prescription eye drop called Restasis (Allergan) for your dry eye treatment. This prescription eye drop helps your eyes boost tear production.

Restasis does more than simply lubricate the surface of your eye. It includes an agent that reduces inflammation associated with dry eye syndrome and helps your body produce more natural tears to keep your eyes moist, comfortable and healthy.

It’s important to know, however, that the therapeutic effect of Restasis is not immediate. You must use the drops daily for a minimum of 90 days to experience the full benefits of this dry eye treatment. Some people who try Restasis will experience burning eyes early during the first few weeks of treatment.

3. Lifitegrast (Xiidra)

Xiidra®, a prescription dry eye medication used to treat the signs and symptoms of dry eye disease

Xiidra (ZYE-druh) is another prescription eye drop for dry eye treatment. Xiidra, like Restasis, is aimed at reducing inflammation associated with the signs and symptoms of dry eyes. These drops are taken twice daily to kick-start tear production.

In two of the four studies, participants noticed a significant reduction in dry eye symptoms after using Xiidra for two weeks. In all four studies, participants noticed a larger reduction in dryness symptoms after six weeks and 12 weeks of Xiidra use.

4. Steroid eye drops

Durezol (difluprednate) is a topical corticosteroid drop for treating eye-related disease

Steroid eye drops generally are used short-term to quickly manage symptoms. They often are used in conjunction with artificial tears and Restasis or Xiidra, as a complement to these more long-term dry eye treatment strategies.

Steroid eye drops (especially if used for relatively long periods) have the potential of causing side effects. So, it’s important to make your eye doctor aware of your full medical history before starting steroid eye drops.

For example, steroid eye drops can increase the risk of developing high eye pressure or even cataracts if used for extended periods of time. But these risks are low when the drops are used only on a short-term basis for dry eye treatment.

5. Punctal Plug

Punctal Plugs are tiny, biocompatible devices inserted into the tear ducts to block tear drainage. This increases the eyes tear film and surface moisture to relieve dry eyes.

A punctal plug is a small, sterile device that is inserted into one of the small openings (puncta) of tear drainage ducts that are located in the inner corner of the upper and lower eyelids.

After these openings have been plugged, tears can no longer drain away from the eye through these ducts. This results in the tear film remaining intact longer on the surface of the eye, relieving dry eye symptoms. So where do the tears go? Usually, they will simply evaporate from the eye surface without symptoms. But if insertion of punctal plugs causes watery eyes, one or more of the plugs can be removed.

If you have dry eye, your ophthalmologist may recommend closing off the puncta, either temporarily or permanently, using punctal plugs. Punctal plugs can save your own tears or make artificial tears last longer.

6. Blink More Frequently

Blinking exercises can help to relief for those with dry eyes

Deliberate, forceful blinks help promote eye health and open up glands, according to Investigative Ophthalmology & Visual Science. But those blinks can seem and look unnatural.

Instead, try practicing normal-looking complete blinks to get the hang of blinking enough.

7. Add Essential Fatty Acids to Your Diet

An omega-3-rich diet helps glands in your eye called meibomian glands make the oily part of your tears. The oil helps keep your tears from drying up too quickly in your eye.

According to the American Association of Ophthalmology, Omega-3 oils improve the function of the gland that produces tears, and they can naturally reduce the symptoms of dry eye. Omega-3 can be found in:

•             Fatty fish such as salmon and tuna

•             Fish oil supplements

•             Flax seeds

•             Chia seeds

•             Walnuts

•             Palm and soybean oil

Takeaway

The treatment you choose to treat your dry eye depends on a variety of factors. You may need a different treatment if your dry eye is caused by an underlying condition. It also depends on the severity of your symptoms and what you’re comfortable with. Work with your doctor or optometrist to find the best solution for you. Book an appointment with us today!

Factors and Symptoms of Dry Eye

What is dry eye?

In this article, we will explain the factors and symptoms of dry eye. Dry eye is a condition in which a person doesn’t have enough quality tears to lubricate and nourish the eye. Tears are necessary for maintaining the health of the front surface of the eye and for providing clear vision. It is common in humans and in some animals. It can affect one or both eyes, and it can lead to inflammation. Dry eye syndrome can occur at any age, and in people who are otherwise healthy.

It is more common with older age, when the individual produces fewer tears. It is also more common in women than in men. It is more common in places where malnutrition results in a vitamin A deficiency. Increasing device and smartphone use has made dry eyes more prominent than ever before. If not treated well, severe dry eyes can lead to serious vision problems or eye pain.

Discover the three main causes of dry eye, how dry eye is diagnosed and ways in which dry eye can be treated in this short video.

Factors of dry eye

Dry eyes can occur when tear production and drainage are not in balance. People with dry eyes either do not produce enough tears or their tears are of a poor quality:

Inadequate amount of tears: Tears are produced by several glands in and around the eyelids. Tear production tends to diminish with age, with various medical conditions or as a side effect of certain medicines. Environmental conditions, such as wind and dry climates, can also decrease tear volume due to increased tear evaporation. When the normal amount of tear production decreases or tears evaporate too quickly from the eyes, symptoms of dry eye can develop.

dry eye symptom

Poor quality of tears: Tears are made up of three layers: oil, water, and mucus. Each component protects and nourishes the front surface of the eye. A smooth oil layer helps prevent evaporation of the water layer, while the mucin layer spreads the tears evenly over the surface of the eye. If the tears evaporate too quickly or do not spread evenly over the cornea due to deficiencies with any of the three tear layers, dry eye symptoms can develop.

Symptoms

A patient with dry eye syndrome may experience a range of symptoms, including:

  • a stinging or burning sensation, and a feeling of dryness, grittiness, and soreness in the eyes
  • a feeling like sand in the eye
  • stringy mucus in or around the eyes
  • eye sensitivity to smoke or wind
  • redness of the eyes
  • difficulty keeping the eyes open
  • eye fatigue after reading, even for a short time
  • blurred vision, especially towards the end of the day
  • sensitivity to light
  • discomfort when wearing contact lenses
  • tearing
  • double vision
  • eyelids sticking together when waking up

Some people find the pain very strong, and this can lead to frustration, anxiety, and difficulty functioning in daily life. Complications may include a worsening of eye redness and light sensitivity, increasing painful eyes, and deterioration of eyesight.

When to see a doctors

If your eyes feel dry and you’re suddenly unable to see as well as you used to, visit an eye doctor, ophthalmologist, or optometrist right away. Dry eye is best treated early. If it goes untreated for a long time, it becomes more difficult to manage. Book your appointment with us at Malaya Optical Optometrist today!

The Importance of eye dominance

In this article, we will explain on the importance of eye dominance in your daily life. The dominant eye may be defined as that eye which performs the major function of seeing, being assisted by the less dominant fellow eye. To state it differently, the two eyes do not affect the visual consciousness with equal force. One eye leads the other, and this leading eye is called the dominant eye. Just as the two hands are unequal in response, both from a motor and from a sensory standpoint, so are the eyes. Just as a person may be right-handed or left-handed, so he may be right eyed or left eyed.

Knowing which eye is your dominant eye can help you perform better in a variety of activities. Here are just a few common examples of the importance of eye dominance that can improve your performance in sports, shooting and also photography.

Sports

Eye dominance plays as important role in playing golf

In some sports, being able to take full advantage of your dominant eye is crucial and requires positioning your head properly in order to do so. Golf and baseball are two examples of this.

In golf, turning your head to use your dominant eye is key in the proper alignment of every stroke, including putts, drives, and fairway shots.

In baseball, you need to turn your head enough to allow your dominant eye to clearly see the approaching ball’s position, rotation, and speed when you’re batting if you want to be able to hit it.

Shooting

If you are right-handed but your dominant eye is your left eye, this cross-dominance can pose challenges for shooting accuracy.

Eye dominance has no particular medical significance, and it may make no difference in your life. It is, however, important for certain activities which require accurate aim. Archery and shooting are particularly problematic. Your dominant eye plays an important role in shooting and hitting moving targets. If you find that you’re having trouble hitting moving targets, you can benefit from a test to find your dominant eye.

Cross dominance, which is having a dominant eye on the opposite side of your dominant hand, can make shooting at a target difficult. Being aware of your cross dominance can help you adjust position and technique, and know which eye to fixate with to improve your accuracy.

Photography

Eye dominance photography

Knowing which of your eyes the dominant eye can help you set up a shot when looking through the viewfinder of a camera. By using your dominant eye, you get a more accurate preview of the shot and better alignment, while using your non-dominant eye can cause some details to be displaced.

By using your dominant eye to look through your camera’s viewfinder in photography, you can compose images better. In terms of great photographic compositions, it will give you an accurate preview of the shot you are taking.

Using your non-dominant eye can cause certain details to be slightly displaced or completely off the frame. Imagine trying to figure out natural frames or place important elements in the centre of the frame without full accuracy. Keep these photo composition tips in mind when you’re shooting next, especially if you’re planning to add natural lines or use the rule of thirds in your photos. It will also help you place points of interest more accurately.

Consult Optometrist

If you are serious about sports and are looking for guidance on how to best use your eyes to enhance sports performance, consider visiting an eye doctor who specializes in sports vision with us at Malaya Optical Optometrist.

Dominant eye: How to find your dominant eye

Have you heard the terms “dominant eye” but aren’t sure what they mean or how you perform the test? Here’s a simple dominant eye test on how to find your dominant eye.

Dominant eye: What is it?

Your dominant eye is the one that provides a slightly (in most cases) greater degree of input to the visual part of your brain and more accurately relays information about the location of objects or in simple meaning is the eye that is your preferred eye.

Most of the time, the term “dominant eye” is used when describing the normal visual condition where the two eyes function well as a team and have relatively equal visual acuity, and one eye is simply the “leading” or preferred eye.

But sometimes, “dominant eye” is used to describe the normally sighted and functioning eye in dysfunctional cases of amblyopia and strabismus.

dominant eye
How to easily find your dominant eye

Steps to test your dominant eye:

  1. Extend your arms out in front of you and create a triangular opening between your thumbs and forefingers by placing your hands together at a 45-degree angle (see animation).
  2. With both eyes open, center this triangular opening on a distant object — such as a wall clock or door knob.
  3. Close your left eye.
  4. If the object stays centered, your right eye (the one that’s open) is your dominant eye. If the object is no longer framed by your hands, your left eye is your dominant eye.

Types of eye dominance

There are three different type of eye dominance that is determined by special tests used to find the dominant eye:

Sighting dominance: This is the preference of one eye over the other when fixating on a target.

Motor dominance: This refers to the eye that is less likely to lose fixation at the near point of convergence.

Sensory dominance: This refers to the eye that has stronger vision than the other.

Impact of using smartphones

Negative impact of using smartphones

Most of us already get to know that at a certain point there will be a stage in our life of where digital devices will be the most popular and important things in human life. Now we already knew that it is true as our routine life will be missed out without connecting ourselves with this kind of latest technologies such as smartphones, laptop, computer, TV, ipad and many more. But do we aware of the negative impact of using smartphones or any other devices without knowing the proper fact and features about it?

Eye strain and digital devices

While our work are mostly rely on this devices everyday, do remember that smartphones, computer, or laptops are all knows as light transmitting devices. To keep your view much clearer and focused, lights do play an important role to make sure you received a sharp and clear clarity image. However, the blue light in particular may be toxic for your eyes.

Scientists from The University of Toledo have discovered that how blue light emitted from your technology has a potential to lead to an eye disease such as macular degeneration —known as one of the leading causes of vision loss in the United States. Macular degeneration occurs due to the result of photoreceptor cell death in the retina. Its not a new thing for us to know that blue light harms our vision by damaging the retinal layer of our eye.

Photoreceptors cells are function to capture visual images and signal them to the brain using an eye molecule named retinal. Blue lights will get triggered by the retinal produced by our eye and it causes various chemical reactions. These reactions produced by the chemical mechanism can be poisonous to our eyes. Thus, when these photoreceptor cells die, there’s no regeneration.

But, do not freak out! There are many ways for us to avoid all these to happen. Protecting yourself may seem as easy as avoiding blue light — but it may not be that straightforward. That is why we need to always set our screen time accordingly. Also be aware of the brightness of your view from screens, your sitting posture and environment reflections.

Eye strain and digital devices

Using blue filter lens or also knows as blue protect lens may help you to reduce all the negative impact that comes from smartphones or other digital devices. These is a filter element which will be attached in your ophthalmic lenses as a protective layer against blue light. During the usage of blue light lenses, it will reduce your eye strain, fatigue, headache as far as dry eye too.

Are you a person who always required to use digital devices, and do you also want to protect your eyes at the same time. Do book an appointment with us at Malaya Optical in Damansara Uptown and get your eyes checked with the best optometrist in town.

Tear Drop

Artificial Tear Drop

From the beginning to the end of human life, many of us may face various eye health issues and one of the common issue is dry eye. Tear lubricant or artificial tear drop used to protect our eyes from getting dry. Basically it help us to maintain our eye to stay healthy, nourish and and keep our eye surface moisturized.

Healthy eye vs Dry Eye

These eyedrops were mainly used to overcome the eye dryness that caused by aging factor, dryness side effect from certain medication, medical or health condition, surgery related to eyes and environmental factors such as smoky and windy condition.

Tear Drop into eyes

Tear drops or more likely to know as artificial tear drops are available off the shelf, which means we can purchase it without a prescription. There is no specific brand to recommend to use as your dry eye treatment eyedrops, as every single form of dry drops reacts in different way to your eyes depends on your sensitivity level.

But most of the available tear drop in markets are knows as one of the effective eyedrops such as Systane Ultra, Tear Naturale, Refresh Tears. For that, you may try a few different brands before you find out which one can work the best and effectively for you.

Artificial Tear Drop

Tear drops may not function to keep your eyes moisturized only, some artificial tear drops also do promote healing in any effective way like repairing our superficial damage eye cells. Since artificial tears contain some agents and solution to keep it thick, it will stay in our eye surface for quite long time and also may decrease tear evaporation.

In market, there are two type of artificial tear drop:

  1. Preservative tear drop. This type of tear drop is already available in market for long time ago and it comes in a small multidose bottles. This bottles can be kept for few months as it contains preservative (chemical agents) to keep it lasting till the expiry date. This chemicals are basically used to discourage the growth of bacteria once the bottle has been open for use. Since there is a preservative, your eyes may feel stingy or irritated due to other dryness in the eyes too.
  • Preservative-free tear drops. For non preservative tear drop, you may not offenly heard about it and this type of tear drop are produced in tube or in a small single dose vials. But  these drops also do have their own advantages over dry eyes. This drops has less additives and it contain 8 onz only in a tube or vial. Thus, you may used it 4 times in a day (ex; morning, afternoon, evening and night, when ever you need it. This type has fewer additives and is generally recommended if you apply artificial tears more than four times a day, or if you have moderate or severe dry eyes.

Some artificial tears are also available as nonprescription gels or gel inserts. These may cause temporary blurred vision due to the thick viscosity.

Soothe tear eye ointment

The next step might be to try one or more artificial tear ointments, if you still don’t have relief after trying various products. The best time to apply ointment is before you go to bed as you may not feel disturbed by the temporary blurred vision.

But always remember that it would be better to seek for an eye care practitioner to understand more about your eye sight condition and the suitable treatment to treat your eye sight problems.

Penilaian mata kering

Penilaian Mata Kering

Di Malaya Optical, kita sebagai optometris hampir menemui pesakit mata kering setiap hari. Dengan teknik dan teknologi terkini yang tertentu, kami dapat mendiagnosis, menilai dan merawat mata kering dengan cara yang lebih cekap. Berikut adalah beberapa penilaian mata kering yang biasa kita gunakan di Malaya Optical.

Di sini, kami menggunakan sebilangan kecil strategi dan kemahiran untuk menilai sebab dan keparahan keadaan mata kering anda dan melaluinya kami akan mengembangkan rawatan mata kering dengan tepat.

Ujian mata kering

Tanda-tanda pertama yang kami menemui sebelum pesakit mengadu tentang mata kering, adalah dengan melakukan ujian NIBUT (waktu pemecahan air mata yang tidak invasif). Nilai pemotongan untuk membezakan pesakit normal dan pesakit mata kering adalah 12 saat dalam ujian NIBUT (Vidas Pauk 2019). Kaedah termudah untuk melakukan ujian ini adalah dengan meter refractor auto. Setelah rongga kornea mereka dapat dilihat dengan jelas pada meter refractor automatik, pesakit boleh mula berkelip dan menahan kelip sehingga boleh. Sementara itu, pengamal penjagaan mata perlu menghitung berapa saat pesakit dapat menahan daripada kelip atau berapa saat permukaan kornea mereka tidak terdistorsi.

Kanan ke Kiri: Imej permukaan air mata distorsi

Pemeriksaan klinikal seterusnya yang boleh dilakukan oleh pakar optometri untuk menilai mata kering adalah dengan pemeriksaan lampu celah (slit lamp). Ujian ini dapat membantu pakar optometri untuk meninjau mata kita di tahap luar dan dalam mata. Ujian ini dilakukan pada tahap mikroskopik, dengan memeriksa kesihatan mata meliputi kelopak mata, lapisan air mata, konjungtiva, anak mata, iris, lensa, sclera, kornea, retina dan juga saraf optik. Selain itu biomikroskopi lampu celah juga dapat menilai kemerahan mata pesakit dan keparahannya dengan mudah.

Ujian slit lamp untuk mata kering

Sebarang serpihan atau habuk boleh menyebabkan kerengsaan semasa kita berkelip dan zarah-zarah kecil ini akan bergerak di sekitar lapisan air mata kita ketika kita berkelip. Lapisan air mata yang tidak rata dapat menyebabkan mata kering, dan lebih-lebih lagi debu dan serpihan yang bergerak di sekitar lapisan air mata kita menyebabkan ketidakselesaan.

Penilaian filem air mata dan kornea: dengan menitis sedikit natrium fluorescein (pewarna kuning) di atas permukaan air mata untuk menilai kualiti filem air mata, dan tanda-tanda kerosakan kornea akibat mempunyai mata kering.

Ujian fluorescein untuk mata kering

Selain itu, lampu celah juga membantu kita mengukur meniskus air mata yang terbentuk sebagai kolam dan terkumpul di konjungtiva bulbar (di margin penutup bawah). Ketinggian normal meniskus air mata adalah sekitar 0.3 hingga 0.4mm. Skala pengukuran dilakukan dengan menggunakan ketinggian lampu celah.

Kunjungilah pakar optik optik Malaya Optikal yang berhampiran dengan anda untuk menguji mata anda dengan membuat penilaian dan pengurusan mata kering yang lengkap.
