Dry eye is a prevalent condition that results from inadequate lubrication of the eye.
Abnormal or deficient tear quality, or quantity, can cause dry eye. Tears consist of 3 layers: lipid, aqueous, and mucin. The meibomian gland in the eyelid produces the lipid layer, and its function decreases as we age. In addition, many other causes may further aggravate dry eye (e.g., surgery, medication, hormonal change, medical diseases, etc).
Patients are welcomed by a dedicated team of eye care professionals who guide patients to appropriate and specific therapies. The pillar of dry eye is the identification and classification of the type of dry eye through our advanced tear film diagnostic tools. This tool, coupled with a dry eye impact questionnaire and other diagnostic tests, provides Uptown Eye Specialists eye care professionals with all the information they require to monitor successful progress through the individualized treatment pathways.
This clinic is unique in the GTA as it provides a multi-specialty approach to your individualized dry eye management. The cornerstone of treatment at the Dry Eye Clinic is UltraView DEL (dry eye laser).

Dr.Raj Maini and our team know the proper placement of Botox to disenable muscles and how frequently it needs to be part of your regime during the year to accomplish a more subtle and rejuvenated YOU.

The eyelids are one of the first areas to show the effect of aging and fatigue. Drooping eyelids, dark circles, and puffy under-eye bags can make you look older than you are and may make you feel less confident about your appearance.
If under-eye concealers, targeted eye-firming creams, and getting plenty of rest hasn’t helped reduce the bags under your eyes, there is a way to permanently regain a more youthful and refreshed eye area: eyelid surgery.
Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure to remove underlying fat and excess skin from the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both.
