Dry eye is a common condition, especially in those people who are over age 60, or who spend a lot of time in certain environmental conditions. Dry eye can be caused by several different factors, or a combination of factors. Luckily, it is a condition that is generally easy to treat, and in mild cases can even be treated by over-the-counter tear solutions. While dry eye is most often not a dangerous sight-stealing condition, it is one that needs to be treated. A patient with dry eye can end up with damage to the cornea if dry eye treatment 10464 is not obtained.
Dry eye occurs when there are not enough tears to lubricate the eye, or when tears do not stay in the eye long enough. There are also times when tears are not of good quality, and are not able to do their job. Tears are taken for granted. Many people do not realize that tears are actually necessary to keep the good health of the front of the eye (the cornea), and to keep clear vision. While dry eye is a chronic problem, it can be treated. When you come to our practice for dry eye treatment 10464, our doctor will determine the cause of your dry eye, and then proceed to provide you with the best treatment possible for your individual situation. Dry eyes are diagnosed by having our doctor take a patient history, doing an external examination of the eye, examination of the eyelids and cornea, and by measurement of the quality and quantity of tears that your eyes produce. Dry eye syndrome can be treated in several different ways including: adding tears using over-the-counter tear solutions; a medical procedure that blocks the tear ducts from draining so quickly to keep tears in the eyes longer; or by prescribing eye drops that help to increase the production of tears. You may also need prescription eye drops to reduce eye inflammation. If you need dry eye treatment, call us today at the Vision Center of New York for an appointment.
