It is thought that Dry Eye disease may affect up to 80% of the adult population. Dr. Clare Halleran has made Dry Eye a focus of her practice for the past 6 years and lectures nationally, sits on advisory boards of dry eye medical panels as well as presents clinical research on the topic internationally.
Dry eye can have many different symptoms including but not limited to: burning, itching, scratching and gritty eyes. As well, Dry eye can cause the eyes to water and the vision to fluctuate a lot. If you think you have dry eye we encourage you to call our office to schedule a visit with us to discuss the problems you’re having with your dryness.

Dr. Clare Halleran is trained in the fitting of custom Scleral Contact lenses. These lenses allow those patients who have been unable to wear other conventional contact lenses to successfully wear contact lenses. Patients who require contact lenses of this nature include: high refractive errors, those with keratoconus or other corneal diseases, post Lasik correction needs and those with severe dry eye.
Scleral lenses are large diameter contact lenses that are custom fit to a patient’s eye and allow for great comfort as well as vision. In some cases these lenses are the only way patients may have their vision successfully corrected.
For more information about scleral lenses and to learn if they may be the right form of correction for your eyes, please visit www.sclerallens.org
Dr. Clare Halleran also uses contact lenses as a way to control the progression of near-sightedness or myopia in young patients. If you are concerned about the rapid progression of your child’s myopia please contact our office to set up a time to speak with Dr. Halleran about ways to slow the progression.
Sometimes patients have problems related to focusing and eye movements that require more than just glasses to help remedy the problem. These issues are known as binocular vision disorders.
It is estimated that 1 in 10 children have a vision problem severe enough to affect their learning in school. Through vision therapy exercises and programs, patients can develop more efficient vision, which may enable them to be more productive when learning. Dr. Lorielle Pevie has a special interest in the evaluation and diagnosis of binocular vision disorders. She will work with patients on areas that require special attention and develop a treatment plan to help improve vision and eye coordination.
If you think yourself or your child may be suffering from vision conditions like this we urge you to contact our office to schedule a time to speak with Dr. Pevie about this.
