dry eye treatment before and afterIs It More Than Just an Annoyance?

For some people, dry eyes might simply be due to seasonal factors and never cause more than passing frustration. For others, the condition can impact their comfort and even quality of life. Untreated dry eye syndrome can develop to a degree that it causes pain and blurred vision. Because a sufficient quantity of moisturizing tears is needed to protect the cornea, severe cases could lead to increased risk of infection, scarring, and ulcers on the surface of the eye.

How can treatment address varying causes?

Effective treatment can not only stop symptoms like watering, redness, and itching, but also protect your long-term eye health and vision.

Restore Your Comfort and Protect Your Vision

To effectively treat your condition, your doctor will first pinpoint the root cause of your dryness. If prescription eye drops cannot adequately manage your symptoms, they may recommend procedures to treat the glands which produce tears. Temporarily plugging the tear ducts at the inner corners of the eyes might also be recommended. In severe cases, the drainage ducts can be permanently closed.

Dry eyes are a common problem that should not be ignored. Speak to an eye doctor about the cause of your symptoms for a personally tailored treatment plan.
