Helping You Find Relief
Dry eye is a prevalent eye condition that occurs because the eyes do not produce enough good-quality tears. Good-quality tears play a significant role in keeping your eyes lubricated and comfortable, and without them, uncomfortable dry eye symptoms can develop. If left untreated, dry eye syndrome can lead to bacterial infections, tissue damage, and corneal scarring. Common symptoms of dry eye include:
- Itchy, burning, or gritty eyes
- Eye fatigue
- Blurry or distorted vision
- Red, irritated eyes
Causes of Dry Eye
A comprehensive eye exam will provide us with the necessary information and context surrounding your symptoms. Common causes of dry eye include:
- Poor tear quality
- Lack of tear production
- Reaction to medication
- Underlying medical conditions
- Environment factors
The Tear Film
Good quality tears keep the eyes feeling lubricated and wash away bacteria and debris. If your tears are not good quality, they may evaporate too quickly. Additionally, if your eyes cannot produce enough tears, your eyes may be unable to eliminate dust and other irritants that can cause discomfort.
The tear film is made up of 3 layers:
- The lipid (oily) layer, made up primarily of meibum produced by the meibomian glands. This layer prevents tears from evaporating too quickly and helps the tears spread evenly across the eye’s surface.
- The aqueous (watery) layer, produced by the lacrimal glands, helps keep the eye moistened and repels bacteria.
- The mucin (mucus) layer, which keeps the tears fastened to the eye.
If you start to experience changes in your eye health or vision, please request an appointment at your earliest convenience.

We are an essential service and we are open.
I have seen Dr. Sebastian and he is the only one to have diagnosed my dry eye syndrome and I have seen others before him and did not catch this. As a result of my dry eyes my prescription was not reading accurately. I am grateful for his patience and extra care he has given me.
My family and I have always been impressed with the friendly yet extremely professional service we have enjoyed over the years. The doctors are knowledgeable and personable, the frame selection is excellent (as is the contingent of wonderful staff who are always available with honest opinions and helpful advice!) and the receptionists are fabulous and friendly. The newly renovated space is lovely as well. Well done, everyone!
My Vision Care experience was absolutely grand. I greatly value all the wonderful people there who looked after me during my visit. Everyone is extremely friendly and highly professional starting right from the time one enters the beautiful place.
The place itself provides a wonderful experience. I value all the professional advice that is given with the greatest care. For me it is a joy to come in on a regular basis and to know I am in good hands. I greatly value the care and guidance given by Dr. Ramesh.
We want to thank you very much for all your hard work that went into Alicia’s Neuro-Visual Therapy. It has opened Alicia’s ability to do so much more both personally and in school, and what means most to us as her parent, we see how confident Alicia is in herself and in her school work. She was always falling down a lot and she always had her head tilted to one side. Now she is focused to get her tasks done on time and the best part, correctly…

When I started the program, I had trouble focusing and sitting and doing my work. Since I started the 36 week program, this has changed. I focused on getting better grades than I did in grade 2 (now in grade 3). I have got A’s in all subjects this year. Now I can sit and do my work, I am able to focus and I am not always looking around the room at other things. I used to need a ruler to read, now I don’t and I can read better and faster than I used to. I am doing great and have learned a lot through this experience.
I am so thankful for encountering Dr. Ramesh who truly cares about her patients. Back in 2015 when I brought my daughter in for the first time, I was hysterical and scared. I was afraid that her eye will never stop turning in and that she would need surgery to fix the lazy eye.
Dr. Ramesh explained to me like no other doctor ( and I’ve brought my daughter to several specialists) what exactly is happening and what can be done to fix the problem. Anna is only 3 years old, we worked persistently with her to the point where now she is able to have great control of her eye. I cannot believe we went from her eye constantly turning in to barely noticing it now. Thank you so much for caring and all of your encouragement and support. You are not only an amazing doctor, but also and amazing person!
