Dry eye questions and current solutions by Dr. Haiman

…everything was perfect, one of the best doctor experiences I’ve ever had.
I suffer from dry burning eyes. My eyes are so uncomfortable, I used to carry artificial tears every where with me. During my exam, Dr. Haiman explained the cause of my dry eyes. He then performed an in office cleaning called blephex that really helped. Now my eyes feel so much better. I forgot what it feels like to have normal eyes. Since having my eye lids cleaned, I can now go a full day without using the artificial tears. Thank you so much to Dr. Haiman and his staff!
Dr. Haiman is an excellent doctor. He is very efficient and cares about the patients eyes. I would recommend anyone I know to him.

Excellent quality of care and customer service. Dr. Haiman explained to me the problem I was having and treated me efficiently, professionally, and courteously, even if the procedure was less than pleasant. He dedicated a great deal of time to treat me and the results were nothing short of excellent. I already recommended me to my family and friends.

Dr Haiman was very informative and answered all my questions with answers I could understand. I would absolutely recommend my family and friends to go to Dr. Haiman.
There is always room for improvement however, I feel this doctor has hit the nail on the head. I went for a second follow up and was still treated very courteously, and with a sense of urgency. Also, his staff (Selena) are just as gracious, taking time, and having patience. Very accommodating. We could all learn a lesson on people skills from this doctor and his staff. Thank You.

Needed to get my vision exam for a racing license and Dr. Haiman and his tech were very accommodating and friendly. I was in and out within 30-45 mins. They explained everything very diligently. Awesome place, quick, easy, and the best doctor’s office experience ever.
Awesome care. The doctor and staff made the appointment easy. Thank you!
I have been a patient of Dr. Haiman for at least five years. I really enjoy being in his office, despite it being in my absolute LEAST place in the whole wide world, Walmart. Everyone on his staff is kind and efficient. I have never waited too long to be seen.

Dr. Phillip Haiman Answers Your Eye Care Questions
I just want glasses and use my Vision Insurance. Can’t you just check me for that?
No. As a licensed Optometrist I governed by the State Board of Optometry AND the Department of Health. Every 2 years, by law, I have take continuing education as well as a Medical Errors and Florida Law course as it relates to the practice of Optometry. I cannot just check someone for glasses. Optometrists must perform a comprehensive eye exam and diagnose and document all findings.
I have been asked many times by patients to just check them for glasses. It’s important to know that if I ever did I could lose my career that I am so passionate about.
What’s Our Specialty You Ask?
Blepharitis is a chronic, inflammatory disease of the eyelids caused by an overgrowth of normal bacteria living along the lid and base of the eyelashes. Anyone can contract blepharitis, at any age. The overgrowth of bacteria causes crusting along the eyelid, and creates a sticky environment that traps dead skin cells and other debris among the eyelashes.
Since eyelids are hard to clean, this overgrowth of bacteria, scurf - thin dry scaly derma- and debris, which can accumulate for years. This environment allows bacteria to flourish, not only causing a multitude of irritating symptoms, but eventually chronic inflammation. The inflammation, in turn, adversely affects the structure of the eye lid and the tear glands.
