Dry Eye Therapy

Dry Eye Center of Hawaii

EyeSight Hawaii is The Dry Eye Center of Hawaii and is Hawaii’s premier location for the diagnosis and treatment of  dry eye. Founder and Chief Surgeon, John Olkowski, MD is a cornea specialist with extensive experience in managing disorders of the front surface of the eye. EyeSight Hawaii is one of the only Accredited Dry Eye Centers in Hawaii with the TearLab tear osmolarity testing system.  This is one of the only methods to objectively quantify and track the degree of dry eye disease.

LipiFlow Treatment

If you are experiencing eye dryness, irritation, light sensitivity, vision fluctuations, contact lens intolerance and eye fatigue, you may be a candidate for a new treatment called LipiFlow. EyeSight Hawaii was the first dry eye center in Hawaii to offer Lipiflow thermal pulsation for the management of dry eye.  We performed the first treatments in Hawaii in early December 2012 and now have a number of satisfied patients. This FDA approved treatment takes 12 minutes in the office.  Lipiflow acts to open oil glands on the eye lid margins that have become plugged.  This additional oil acts to protect the tears and relieve dry eye symptoms.

TearLab Osmolarity Test

The TearLab Osmolarity Test is the first objective and quantitative test for diagnosing and managing Dry Eye patients.

Ocular Allergy Testing

Since ocular allergies affect so many people and can even worsen dry eye disease, EyeSight Hawaii now offers ocular allergy testing. Doctor’s Allergy Formula (DAF) is a proprietary, FDA-approved diagnostic skin “scratch” test to determine your specific allergies. This simple, painless (shot free) 3-minute test is covered by major medical insurance. The results of the test are read after only 15 minutes.
