Dry eye is a multifactorial disease and requires a thorough evaluation to determine the cause and the best treatment options. This is one of our most rewarding diseases to treat because it can significantly impact a patient's quality of vision and life.

What are the symptoms of dry eye?

Some of the common symptoms associated with dry eye are burning, gritty sensation, watery eyes, light sensitivity, pain, blurry or fluctuating vision, and redness.

What are the treatment options?

There are many good options! Our philosophy is to start with simple treatments first and work up the treatment ladder as we need to. However, it all depends on the severity of the disease.

Treatment options include:

  • artificial tears

  • punctal plugs

  • prescription dry eye medications

  • TearCare - read more about this procedure here.

  • Intense Pulsed Light

  • nutritional supplements

There is not one treatment that fits all so a personalized treatment approach is what we do best.

If you're experiencing dry eye or have tried artificial tears without success, please come see us! Request a dry eye consultation appointment here.
