The Bruder Moisture Mask is a very effective, holistic approach to dry eye.  Heating your eye lids enables/activates your own body to better produce the oils essential to create a great tear film.  The mask is far better than warm compresses with face cloths because it delivers sustained heat.   A face cloth will only stay warm for approximately 40 seconds and you need a minimum of 5 minutes to have a positive effect on lipid flow/production.  5 to 10 minutes of the Bruder mask followed by lid massage works wonders for dry eye sufferers.  

Dr. Morris uses the mask as cross-over product for both dry eye sufferers and because it offers a very spa-like, soothing experience... it also is very helpful for those suffering from digital eye strain.

Bruder masks are reusable, cleanable and last a very long time!

I highly recommended Hyabak®.  It has far exceeded our patients' expectations to help dry eyes and contact lens related irritation.  We often hear "This is the best eye drop that I have ever tried" when they return to purchase more.

Part of the magic of Hyabak® is in the bottle.  The special, filtered bottle allows for the drop to be non-preserved.  This means that it is very gentle to the ocular surface and can be used many times a day if required.  Hyabak®'s bottle also has a long shelf life of 90 days once opened.  This is 3 times longer than a standard bottles' shelf life (30days once opened).  Non-preserved drops are typically delivered in single dose vials costing much more.   Each Hyabak® bottle contains ~300 drops.

Hyabak® is not the answer for all forms of dry eye.  Please see our DRY EYE INFORMATION PAGE and/or speak to your eye care professional about the correct dry eye therapy for you.

You can order Hyabak® by clicking 'Add to Cart' below and following the instructions.  We will ship out your product ASAP.  Note that our online eCommerce name is "mEYEspa".
SHIPPING is via Canada Post and rate is calculated at checkout

  • National Nutrition Month and Eyes
    Feb 2019 | It's National Nutrition Month.  The Canadian Association of Optomtreists has a great post on nutrtion and your eyes.    Have a read > https://opto.ca/health-library/5-snacks-for-healthier-eyes

  • Sparks, Flashes and Rosemary
    Feb 2019 | Thanks to an 88 year old patient today for making my day!  He reported seeing spots in his vision when laying down to bed.  The eye care folks will appreciate the question but when I asked "Do you get any flashes or sparks of light?"... His answer - without hesitation - was "No... but there was this girl named Rosemary that gave me flashes and sparks!"  :)   Dr.j  Studioeyecare.com




  • Formaldhyde in Eyelash Glue
    Jan 2019 | I have posted on this before but I am seeing several women a month with eye/eyelid irritation after lash extensions.  Symptoms are excessive tearing, itchiness, redness and/or lid puffiness.   Be careful... the likely culprit (of the many chemicals in the glue) is formalin.   Most eyelash extension glues contain formaldehyde, a known carcinogen and an allergen to approx 20% of the population.   Try and verify that your eyelash folks use formaldehyde-free products.   Dr. J   www.Studioeyecare.com


  • Feel 10 years younger!
    July 2018 | Everyone will eventually need help focusing up close.... period.   Besides aches and pains, this inconvenient truth is the first reminder for many in our 40's that we all age.  I talk to many many folks a week about the limited options to deal with near focus challenges - reading glasses, some form of bi/multifocal glasses and contact lenses.   This post is about the generally quickly dismissed option #3 - contact lenses.  Albeit scary to envision wearing for some, contact lenses to help you focus up close are NOT - uncomfortable, risky, tough-to-handle.   And... if you searched out reading glasses to read this post... they can make you feel younger.  The certainly do for me!

    Think of how many times that you: look at your cell phone a bit blurry; hold the menu further away; can not tell if that screw-head is Phillips or Roberson head; pull back from your partner to see them better; look at a blurry plate of food.   Guys especially - You can do this!  - Roll back the clock and experience not needing those *&!! glasses again.

    Contact lens use does not need to be full-time...  socially/casually works great too!

    Easy guide for what to expect...
    Step ONE - Find an Optometrist that actually wants to spend the time required with you to discuss all options - including contact lenses.  Unfortunately many fitters will not want to be bothered with contacts for our age group
    Step TWO -  You will trial contacts in-office to ensure that they fit, are safe and do the job as expected
    Step THREE - You will be taught how to insert and remove a contact lens - do NOT worry about this - it is very very rare that a motivated patient can not do this with the right coaching and some time
    Step FOUR - You will take lenses and trial them in your own world
    Step FIVE - At a follow-up visit - your lenses will likely be adjusted to address any vision improvements found during the trial
    Step SIX - Order end enjoy your new-found little fountain of youth and see who notices

    Costs
    A quick discussion of options is usually included in a complete eye exam.  A dedicated contact lens appointment with a trial and teach with follow-up will cost approximately $50 to $100.
    Lens pricing ranges immensely depending on needs and replacement schedule e.g. $125 a year for one monthly lens (monovision) to $1000 a year for two single-use multifocals.  You will need to discuss options with your eye doctor.   For reference - I wear a non-bifocal single use lens that would be $250 annually.
