Providing Relief for Winnipeg’s Dry Eyes Since 1979

Dry eye disease occurs when the eye lacks lubrication. There are 2 causes of poor eye lubrication: the eye does not produce enough tears, or the tears it makes evaporate too quickly to lubricate the eye.

Dry eye disease can be chronic and is sometimes incurable. However, dry eyes can be managed in many cases. At Henderson Vision Centre, we provide extensive diagnostics and treatment programs for patients seeking dry eye therapy.

Most patients see us 4 times over 6 months:

  • Once for an initial assessment/treatment.
  • Follow-up diagnostics and treatments at 1, 3, and 6-month milestones.

More Information About Dry Eyes

Dry eye disease’s symptoms are similar to those of other conditions, such as conjunctivitis. Many people also confuse dry eye with seasonal allergies or temporary irritation.

  • A stinging, burning sensation in 1 or both eyes
  • A feeling as if something is in the eye
  • Watery eye, often followed by periods of dry eye
  • A stringy discharge from the eye
  • Redness of the eye (and often the eyelids and surrounding tissue due to rubbing the eyes)
  • Blurry, hazy vision
  • Unable to cry

We Can Help Alleviate Your Dry Eye Disease Symptoms

If dry eye is impacting you, visit us for an assessment and treatment. Request your appointment here.

Diagnosis begins with an eye exam, during which we examine your eyes and assess their overall health. If you have dry eyes, we also may measure the volume or quality of your tears.

We can also help diagnose the cause of your dry eye. Many factors can cause dry eyes, including common medications (like antihistamines) and digital eye strain.

Our dry eye therapy program includes:

  • Oculus Keratograph 5 imaging to gauge the cause and severity of your dry eyes. This process measures the meibomian glands, tear meniscus height, and tear breakup time
  • Hylo non-preserved artificial tears to increase eye lubrication
  • Heating goggles to stimulate eyelid health
  • Tea-tree oil cleanser

Regardless of the method of treatment used, our goal is the same: to improve your quality of life by reducing or eliminating your symptoms.

Where Can You Find Us?

You can find us in the River East Plaza, between Safeway and Booster Juice, and across from Tim Hortons. We have plenty of parking available on-site.
