Over the past 5 years since I have been in AZ I noticed my eyes were becoming more dry and uncomfortable. I had never experienced this prior to living here so I wasn’t quite sure if it was just the dry climate or an actual condition so I just dealt with it using eye drops to the tune of 30-40 times a day.
I just happened to be in the waiting area of my GP’s office and the Morning Blend was on, interviewing Dr. Bevels about her new business Elite Dry Eye Spa. It was so encouraging to hear someone actually had a practice specifically for this condition.
The first appointment was to evaluate (with a very thorough examination) the condition. I was diagnosed with “moderate” dry eye and she began the first treatment right away. I felt immediate results… the condition was still there, however I was only using eye drops several times a day after the first week. We continued with weekly treatments for a month and all I can say that the dry eye has relaxed and the “oil” glands are now able to do their job and I maintain it with a daily routine she prescribes.
Dr. Bevels, in my opinion is providing a service that potentially will give an entire community of dry eye sufferers much needed relief. Her spa provides a very relaxing environment and she makes you feel very welcomed. If you are suffering from this condition, I highly recommend to schedule an appointment!
