Dry Eye Treatment
At the Center for Ocular Tear Film Disorders, we take a multi-pronged approach to the treatment of Dry Eyes, Blepharitis, or related disorders of the surface of the eye. Our treatment procedures address tear quality, production, distribution, drainage and maintenance.
We see each patient frequently in order to establish an effective therapeutic relationship, monitoring progress, and adjusting treatment as needed. There is no cure for dry eyes. However, with comprehensive treatment, most patients experience significant improvement in symptoms and quality of life.
Tear quality can be improved by lifestyle and nutritional adjustments. Our dry eye doctor provides you the information you need to ensure your success with the appropriate lifestyle and nutritional changes. We take the time to explain how your environment and eating habits effect the health of your eyes.
Tear production can be improved by prescription eye drops. Once again, our dry eye doctor works with you to ensure your prescription provides the right solution for your eyes.
Blepharitis, or inflammation of the eyelid margins, can be improved with prescribed lid hygiene. We don't just tell you, we show you how.
Tear drainage can be blocked temporarily or long-term by collagen or silicone
punctal plugs. Trust our dry eye doctor to explain the treatment and discuss whether
this is the right treatment for you.
