The Dry Eye Guy: Innovative, Cutting-Edge Treatment for Painful Eyes

Patricia Guthrie, a home health care provider living in Brazoria, woke up one day in March 2022 with a terrible headache, painful eyes, and strange circles in her vision. “I saw several doctors and no one could determine what was going on,” she explains. “At one point, I was only able to work 10 hours a week due to the pain and discomfort.”
Married for just three years when the pain hit, Patricia and her husband Patrick tackled the problem together, but, “It was very stressful,” she says. “Patrick drove me to every appointment. You just don’t know if you’ll ever feel better and it affects your mood and outlook.”
“For a year, she didn’t go anywhere without sunglasses and a hat,” Patrick says. “She wore them to protect her eyes from bright lights and the slight breezes from vents and fans. She even wore them at church and at night.”
Luckily, Patricia found Dr. Faheem Inayatali through an internet search. He diagnosed her with severe dry eye disease and ocular rosacea, an inflammatory disease that affects your eyes and the tissue around them. It’s a chronic disease that has no cure, however, it can be managed with various treatments. Dr. Faheem suggested Intense Pulse Light (IPL) treatment for her dry eye disease.
IPL is an FDA-approved quick, non-invasive, pain-free therapy that uses special light waves to reduce inflammation (rosacea) and help restore congested meibomian glands in the eyelids. The treatment encourages the glands to produce oils that lubricate the eyes, keeping healthy tears on the eyes longer and dramatically reducing symptoms such as redness, burning, excess watering, grittiness, and itchy eyes. “This treatment gets to the root of the condition, rather than providing a temporary quick fix as with artificial tears,” Dr. Faheem says. “If the glands are not treated early on, they become damaged and eventually die out. We need these glands to last our entire lives to produce healthy tears. IPL also helps to treat bacteria-related lumps and bumps known as styes on the eyelids.”
”Patricia had four treatments and she is almost in total remission today,” Patrick says. “Visiting the Dry Eye & Wellness Center was worth every minute of the one-hour drives to Sugar Land.”
“Dr. Faheem is a good, detailed, and friendly doctor,” Patricia adds. “He answered all of my questions patiently and thoroughly.”
