How We Treat Dry Eye Disease
Fortunately, if you suffer from dry eye, there are a variety of methods that our optometrists use to improve your condition. For example, certain medications can increase one’s tear production or reduce eye surface inflammation. Other treatments heat the oil glands of the eyes to produce better quality tears that do not evaporate as quickly. At-home treatment regimens may be prescribed to rejuvenate the eyes. While there is no cure for dry eye disease, a customized treatment plan can help improve your overall eye comfort.
