Dry Eye Management

Dry Eye Disease (DED) affects hundreds of millions of people throughout the world and is one of the most frequent causes of patient visits to eye care practitioners.1 Symptoms of dry eye disease include a sandy gritty sensation in the eyes, burning, itching, fluctuating vision and redness.

Our doctors perform dry eye evaluations daily, which start with measurement of tear osmolarity, evaluation of the meibomian glands of the eyelid, and ophthalmoscopy of the cornea and ocular surface with vital dyes. Treatments for dry eye disease include:

  • Over-the-counter artificial tears
  • Warm compresses to the eyelids and eyelid hygiene
  • Prescription eyedrops such as Restasis, Xiidra, Cequa, and Eysuvis Punctal Plugs
  • Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Treatment
  • Prokera Corneal Bandage Lens
