Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Jaccoma "Mission Statement: At New England Dry Eye, we strive to deliver the best in comprehensive dry eye therapy, including the advanced Lipiview and Lipiflow technologies from Tear Science. Thanks to Tear Science and the work of one of their founders, Dr. Korb, we have a deeper understanding of some of the major causes of dry eye disease. Using State-of-the-Art technologies, it is now possible to detect these causes before they progress to significant symptoms and obvious pathology. More importantly, we now have a number of safe, comfortable, effective treatments (Lipiflow, IPL and a unique radiofrequency treatment) for a major player - Meibomian Gland Dysfunction and its end-result, evaporative dry eye disease. Caught and treated early, we can help to prevent this otherwise chronic, progressive, frustrating and potentially debilitating problem. With over 30 years of practice, we have a depth of experience and reputation for excellence that we encourage you to come see for yourself."
