Millions of Americans suffer from Dry Eye Syndrome. There are many different causes of dry eyes, and each cause requires a different treatment.
Artificial Tears, or lubricating drops, are available as a first-line therapy.
There is also a procedure our doctors perform called “punctal occlusion,” which allows your eyes to retain more of their own tears. It is a painless, non-invasive, and reversible procedure using a microscopic sterile plug to block the drainage of tears.
For certain types of Dry Eyes, “Restasis” may be the best treatment. This twice-a-day prescription eye drop helps you to produce more of your own tears. See your eye doctor to determine which treatment is best for you.
