Relieving Dry Eye: Treatment Options at Wang Vision Institute

Featured Image

Dry eye syndrome is a common condition that can cause discomfort and a variety of irritating symptoms, affecting one's quality of life. At Wang Vision Institute, we understand the impact of untreated dry eye and offer multiple treatment options to address the signs and symptoms unique to each patient. Let's explore the cutting-edge treatments available at our Nashville, TN office.


This innovative treatment targets Meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD), which is a leading cause of dry eye. Using thermal pulsation technology, LipiFlow applies heat and pressure to unblock clogged Meibomian glands. By restoring the production of healthy oils, LipiFlow significantly relieves MGD-related dry eye symptoms.


Another non-surgical option for MGD-related dry eye, iLux utilizes a specialized device to gently apply heat and compression to the eyelids. This precise treatment helps open blocked Meibomian glands and restore the flow of oils, improving tear film quality and providing lasting relief.


Specifically designed to remove debris and bacteria from the eyelids, BlephEx is an effective in-office procedure for blepharitis, a common cause of dry eye. Using a small, rotating brush, BlephEx gently exfoliates the eyelids, eliminating debris and bacteria to improve dry eye symptoms.

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Therapy

This non-surgical, non-invasive treatment uses pulses of light to improve tear film quality and reduce inflammation. By targeting the meibomian glands, IPL helps release oils, improving tear film quality and reducing dry eye symptoms.

Punctal Plugs

These small silicone devices are inserted into the tear ducts to slow down tear drainage. By blocking the tear ducts, punctal plugs help retain tears on the eye surface, providing relief from dry eye symptoms.

Amniotic Membrane Contact Lens (AMCL)

This unique treatment was invented by our very own Dr. Ming Wang! AMCL utilizes a thin, biocompatible tissue derived from the amniotic membrane. Placed on the cornea, it promotes healing and reduces inflammation. Effective for various causes of dry eye, the AMCL offers a natural healing approach for those unresponsive to conventional treatments.

Dry eye can significantly impact one's quality of life. However, with the range of advanced treatment options available at Wang Vision Institute, relief is within reach. If you are struggling with dry eye, schedule a consultation with our experts to find the treatment options that will best suit your unique needs and help you regain ocular comfort, reduce dryness, and enjoy clearer vision.
