There is no cure for dry eye however we can work together so that clinical signs and most importantly your symptoms are improved. Our approach at Ottewell Eye Care is holistic and synergistic in that a combination of many types of treatment together can be the difference maker versus using therapy one by one.
There are numerous methods to treat your symptoms of dry eyes. These include topical artificial tears, topical prescription medication, lid hygiene exercises, punctal plugs, nutritional supplements, and oral medication to name a few.
Our understanding of dry eyes has come a long way and as you read, it is still changing. The treatment of dry eye is also very fluid in that the products we use and the length of time is subject to fine tweaks and adjustments based on the progress. On that note, we understand the complexity of each patient’s case; we strive for excellence and progression, not perfection.
