Each case of dry eye is unique. Successful alleviation of symptoms can be achieved through a number of treatment options. After a thorough exam, Dr. Fung will choose the treatment options that are best for your specific needs. Treating other medical conditions such as eye lid diseaese, are often necessary to alleviate the symptoms associated with dry eyes.
Possible treatments include artificial tears, medicated eye drops, anti-inflammatory medications, punctal occlusion (a simple in-office eyelid procedure that can keep your eyes better moistened), diet modification, dry eye contact lenses and nutritional supplements. Often, a combination of treatments provides the best results.
