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".

  • 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.


  • Improved sex with contact lenses?!
    July 2018 |  Granted that the title of this post is most definitely clickbait but I have had two patients tell me that their awesome new contact lenses really have made their lives better!   [1] on her follow-up assessment a newly single woman with great distance vision but poor near vision... "I don't have to pull our my reading glasses to decide which way to swipe on Tinder!" and  [2] a very very nearsighted man recently reports wearing his new [extended wear] contact lenses to bed let's him see his partner better. 
    Motivation to trial contact lenses can come in many forms!   We fit super easy and comfortable lenses at Studioeyecare.com  dr.j

  • Laser Pointer Eye Damage - Be Careful! These things are not toys.
    June 2018 | A 9-year-old boy in Greece was left with damaged vision after staring into a laser pointer. His doctors describe the case in a paper published in the New England Journal of Medicine.

    The boy's parents brought him to an ophthalmology clinic for evaluation after he complained of decreased vision in his left eye. An examination showed the vision in his left eye was 20/100, compared to 20/20 vision in his right eye.  Doctors also found a "large macular hole" in the retina of his left eye.

    "The child reported playing with a green laser pointer and repeatedly gazing into the laser beam," they write. Because of the large size of the hole, the doctors decided on a conservative approach rather than surgery.    See more https://goo.gl/XGFCDf

  • Poor Vision with correct Rx
    May 2018 | What are some reasons that your could have poor vision even if your eyeglass/contact lens prescription is 100% correct?   #1  There could be an imbalance in the muscles of your eyes... imbalance can result in poor vision, fatigue, fluctuating vision.  The can be corrected with appropriate prism lenses.  #2 Tear film - Although a very thin layer, having a tear film of the correct chemistry and consistency is critical to great, stable vision.  #3 Pathology - Something wrong with the eye (e.g. cataract, retina issue) or behind-the-eye in the visual system (e.g. inflammation, concussion) can result in poor vision.  #4 Lenses- Scratches, poor coatings can lead to poor vision like night glare even with the correct power!  #5 Fatigue- Vision fluctuation increases with fatigue  #6 Working distance- Agecan make it more challenging to make all distance clear with one prescription.  Often multiple prescriptions are required for different working distances!   Dr. j   www.StudioEyeCare.com
