Referrals to the Dry Eye Center

Thank you for allowing East Main Vision Clinic to participate in the care of your patients. We look forward to collaborating with you to create the optimal path to the best possible ocular health for our patients.

Our Promise

The Dry Eye Center at EMVC strives to deliver compassionate care at all times. We serve you and your patients by providing specialty care only and deferring all primary eyecare to your clinic. We believe in co-management that unifies all eyecare providers. Communication and patient participation are highly valued.

We will:

  • Evaluate and manage your patient as promptly as possible
  • Update you on your patient’s progress and symptoms resolution
  • Value your contribution and return stable patients you, their primary eye care physician, for ongoing primary eye care.

We also welcome referrals from family and internal medicine, rheumatology, endocrinology, or other specialties where patients require management of their Dry Eye.

The LipiFlow® Activator, a single-use sterile device, safely and comfortably delivers automated therapeutic energies to each meibomian gland while protecting the delicate structures of your eye such as your cornea.


BlephEx® is a new, in-office procedure that allows Dr. Day to take an active role in treating dry eye and blepharitis. BlephEx® removes excess bacteria, biofilm and bacterial toxins, the main causes of inflammatory dry eye and lid disease.


Our Dry Eye Specialist will take a sample of tears from each eye and use the TearLab device to measure osmolarity (the salt content of your tears). As osmolarity in your tears increase, ocular surface cells become damaged.

Oculus 5M

Our Oculus 5M allows us to evaluate the breakdown in your tear film layers, your blink pattern and your Meibomian Gland health. Using this technology we are then able to print out a detailed report from your evaluation for you to take home with you.
