Dry eye is a common ocular condition, which usually stems from the protective tear film over the surface of the eye evaporating more quickly. A deficiency in the lipid, or oil, layer of the tear film causes this rapid evaporation, which is in most cases caused by meibomian gland dysfunction. As a result, the eyes become increasingly exposed to air, wind, debris, and sunlight, causing burning, stinging, tearing, itching sensations, and redness.
Dry eye has no definitive cure, but the symptoms can be effectively treated. At Better Vision New Jersey, we utilize various treatment options to ensure that each and every one of our patients have optimal results and minimal difficulties with symptoms. Artificial tear eye drops can bring much relief to dry eyes, while ointments and humidifiers can be helpful as well. We also use medications such as Xiidra and Restasis and punctal plugs as well as LipiFlow® Thermal Pulsation Therapy, a new and exciting advancement in dry eye treatment. In fact, Dr. Calderone was the first physician in New Jersey (and one of the first in the United States) to offer this exciting technology, the only technology FDA approved to treat evaporative dry eye syndrome.
All of our physicians are experts in the diagnosis and treatment of dry eye. Request a consultation today to determine the best dry eye treatment for you.

I had cataracts and after Dr. Calderone operated on my eyes, my vision is now 20/20. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. It’s a tremendously well-equipped practice in terms of the technology that’s used to take care of your eyes and the technical staff is also superb.
I have been a patient of Dr. Calderone’s for more than I can remember and I have always found the physicians and entire staff to be professional, caring and thorough in everything they do. All the physicians spend quality time with each patient to hear about their concerns or answer questions. I personally would highly recommend him to family and friends.
I had originally gone to the practice for floaters in my eye and discovered that I had cataracts. I found everyone at Better Vision New Jersey—from the physicians to the staff—to be extremely kind and caring. I was very impressed with the quality of care I received and how well they not only treated me, but also my husband. Their facilities are state-of-the-art and they are absolute experts in their field.
