Erasing Symptoms With Effective Dry Eye Treatment

Dry Can Affect Anyone, Anytime of Year

As there is no one cause of dry eye syndrome, there is no simple way to prevent the development of symptoms. Fortunately, the illness can usually be managed effectively, with symptoms clearing up within a matter of days or weeks.

To get your eyes back to their healthy, well-hydrated condition, give us a call and arrange an appointment so we can get to know them. We offer a comprehensive eye exam featuring a range of diagnostic tests from which we can make tailored eye care recommendations to treat your symptoms.

Symptoms – Varying in severity, you could experience any of the following:

  • Itchy and sore eyes
  • Swelling
  • Difficulty reading or keeping eyes open
  • Fatigue
  • Blurry vision
  • A burning sensation around the eye
  • Dry, scratchy feeling

Testing and Diagnosis

Dry eye can be a profoundly irritating condition. Caused by a lack of lubrication on the surface of the eyeball, it can cause serious aggravation and leave some individuals unable to do their jobs. The eye becomes red, inflamed and uncomfortable, and rubbing or scratching the area only heightens symptoms.

It’s important to quickly assess the severity of the condition so that we can recommend the safest, most effective treatment program to get your eyes back in working order.

Fluorescein Eye Drops

These are yellow-orange eye drops which act as a temporary dye for tears. The amount of time required for tears to evaporate is an important measure in diagnosing dry eye, and using dye makes it easier to track.

Lissamine Green Test

By coating the eyeball in a temporary green dye, we can observe irregularities or damage on its surface.

Treatment

Because dry eye can be caused by a number of different factors, treatments must be tailored to your precise case. At the discretion of your doctor, you may benefit from any of the following:

  • Artificial Tear Formulation Determination therapy
  • Punctal plugs
  • Scleral lenses
  • LipiFlow

Light Therapy

This treatment is still in its infancy, but research is producing commendable results. Gentle massage of the eyelids is used in conjunction with intense, pulsating light to provide relief from irritating symptoms. This treatment is provided by our referral practices.

Punctal Plugs

You can use these to reduce or stop the flow of tears away from the eye. This forces moisture to remain near the eyes, generally keeping them more moist. For a more permanent solution, you could undergo thermal cautery, which uses directly-applied heat to seal your tear ducts.

LipiFlow

This is a commercially-tested procedure which unblocks the oily meibomian glands near the eyes, improving tear production. It is very effective at increasing the lubrication of the eyes. This procedure is provided by our referral practices.

Scleral Lenses

Unlike many conventional contact lenses which are designed to be breathable, scleral lenses lock-in moisture and keep your eyes from drying out. Since dry eye can make using normal lenses almost impossible, these can be a great alternative.
