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.

I highly recommended Thealoz® for contact lens wearers and those spending long hours at a computer. 

A new approach to Dry Eye Management Thealoz® is a new concept that comes from nature. It has a novel mode of action which may enable trehalose to address different causes of dryness. Thealoz® is a preservative free, pH neutral aqueous solution. It’s main ingredient is trehalose, a natural substance present in many plants and animals that are able to survive in extremely dry conditions. Trehalose has properties that enable protection of the eyes and stabilization of cell membranes on the corneal epithelium.

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

You can order Thealoz® 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".

  • The evolution of 'Cell Phone Bifocals'
    Feb 2018 |  I have been an Optometrist for over 20 years and I have noticed an interesting sign-of-the-times (maybe only to other Optometrists! LOL)  Even 10 years ago, I always used a reading distance of ~40cm to calculate the power required on bifocal glasses.   Only if my patient liked to sew or fly fishing would I venture to hike up the reading power and reduce working distance.   These days cell phone have completely changed the distance at which we read.  Over the last few years my patients' bifocal lenses are universally stronger... driven by the need to see phones at a close reading distance.  There has been some new innovative lenses to help deal with this problem so that things 'in-between' like dashboards and shelves and old-school computer screens are still clear.   We are problem solvers at Studioeyecare.com    See you soon,  Dr.j






  • Near & Farsightedness - not opposite?
    Jan 2018 | The terms nearsightedness and farsightedness cause endless confusion. Nearsightedness (myopia) is the easier of the two... near vision is great without glasses.  Significant nearsightedness almost always requires correction.  Farsightedness (hyperopia) is however not the opposite.  For a child, farsightedness means that they have to work harder to focus on near tasks - whether this requires glasses is an individual decision with an Optometrist.  For someone in their 20's and 30's, farsightedness means that closer tasks may be tiring or unclear some of the time.   For the 40+ crowd, farsightedness means close tasks are typically blurry most of the time.  Talk to your Optometrist about your best options to correct!   Dr. j   Studioeyecare.com

  • Treating Dry Eyes without drops?!
    Dec 2017 | There are two strategies that I use to treat dry eyes... #1 Add a drop to effect change to the surface of the eye and/or #2 Try and get the body to produce healthier tears.   This blog post lists methods used to get your own body to produce better tears.
    1] Heat - Using warm compresses for 5min twice a day will help move natural oils onto your ocular surface.  However, most people do not do compresses long enough or consistent enough to create change.  A warming mask like - Bruder- and lid massage is very useful for this.  There are in-office treatments also available.
    2] Omega3 - A good quality Omega3 ~2000mg per day will help provide the building blocks that your body needs for well-balanced tears.
    3] Water - Drink plenty of water!
    4] Humidity - Consider a humidifier for dry environments and when sleeping

  • Why do I need an OCT?
    Nov 2017 |  Why do I need an OCT? (optical coherence tomography)

    An OCT is a special image of the back of the eye.  Unlike a typical photo, an OCT gives a cross-section of retina and detailed measurements which are extremely helpful in detecting retinal pathology.  Patients with conditions such as diabetes, macular degeneration, glaucoma and more will benefit from this quick, non-invasive image.

    There are two main uses for OCT – detecting Retinal Defects and detecting Nerve Loss.

    Retinal Defects – Wrinkles, breaks, holes, fluid, blood, leaky vessels, deposits, medication side effects can all be detected though OCT imaging.  This can be critical in planning the best course of treatment or frequency or follow-up.  Many specialists expect an OCT image be done prior to them accepting new patients.

    Nerve Loss – In optic neuropathies such as glaucoma, change generally happens very slowly.  Repeated OCT imaging gives an extremely accurate view of progression and risk of vision loss.  In the past monitoring nerve loss was monitored with visual field analysis.  However, ~58% of the nerve fibres’ from your eye can be lost before you have significant visual field loss.  An OCT detects loss much earlier and helps us create a plan to prevent vision loss.  (note - Visual fields still have a significant role in the ongoing management/monitoring of glaucoma)

    Studio Eye Care now offers OCT
    OCT images are invaluable in detecting and monitoring ocular pathology and we are now please to offer in-office without referral.

    Basic OHIP coverage does not pay for OCT imaging however many private insurance plans will reimburse you for this advanced imaging.
