Dry Eye Treatment

Dry Eye Treatment

Dry eyes or dry eye syndrome (DES) is an ongoing condition that treatments may be unable to cure. But the symptoms of dry eye—including dryness, scratchiness and burning—can usually be successfully managed.

Our optometrists may recommend artificial tears, which are lubricating eyedrops that may alleviate the dry, scratching feeling and foreign body sensation of dry eye. Prescription eye drops for dry eye go one step further: they help increase your tear production.

Other therapies our eye doctors recommend are oral medication, punctal plugs,oil gland expression and tear osmolarity monitoring, all of which may aid in reducing dry eye symptoms.
