The Dry Eye Clinic of Regina is part of The Spectrum Eye Centre   A practice within a practice, it offers world class treatment for dry eye and ocular surface disease. Dry eye and Ocular Surface Disease has long been a passion of Dr. Travis Robertson and he is also a member of the Tear Film and Ocular Surface Society located in Boston. Dr. Robertson has extensive experience in managing dry eye especially in conjunction with systemic conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, thyroid problems, Sjogren's syndrome and lupus as well as eye conditions like glaucoma that often are associated with dry eye.

New insight into the causes of dry eye, particularly the importance of normal meibomian gland function and the role of evaporative dry eye (especially bad in Regina’s arid environment) have increased the number and success of treatment options.  We now can offer our patients a variety of therapies that didn’t exist only a few years ago. Dry eye is a complex disorder than can be difficult to properly diagnose and manage. The disorder can range from mildly annoying to completely disabling and life-altering.
