Efficient tear production is necessary to maintain moisture in the eyes so that they are comfortable and vision is clear and free of debris. When the amount of tears produced is reduced or the tears evaporate too quickly, the condition is known as dry eye syndrome. This reduction in tear production occurs naturally as we age, but it can also be caused by other factors. For example, common medications, such as pain relievers and antihistamines, can cause a decline in tear development. Having dry eyes is uncomfortable and can result in serious damage to the surface of the eye if left untreated. You can trust that Apex Eye doctor will provide you with an accurate diagnosis and offer you various treatment options to help manage your dry eye symptoms and discomfort. There is no cure for this condition, but symptoms can be treated in the following ways:
- Eye drops (or artificial tears), which provide lubrication to the eyes and help them maintain moisture
- Ointments, which are applied before bedtime to help eyes maintain moisture throughout the night
- Closing off the tear ducts to conserve tears and make artificial tears last longer
In addition to the unmatched, professional care you will receive, Apex Eye frequently participates clinical trials for dry eye treatments. This provides our patients access to cutting edge treatments for dry eye.
