Dry Eye and Corneal Treatment
If you suffer from burning, gritty, sandy eyes, we can suggest several treatments plans, including punctual plugs that stop the draining out of your own tears (these are inserted painlessly in the office without the need for anesthesia). The use of medicated tears such as Restasis (the only prescription eye drop to help increase tear production, in cases where it may be reduced by inflammation due to Chronic Dry Eye) We also can provide you with ProOmega an everyday prevention to chronic dry eye. Allergic conjunctivitis is another common problem that results in itchy, red eyes with watery discharge. There are a number of medications on the market and we can find the correct one for relief of your symptoms. The cornea is the window of the eye and if diseased, it often can cause decreased vision and discomfort. A complete exam can determine if a corneal problem exists.
Omega 3 protects eyes from age-related damage by promoting the production of natural anti-inflammatory molecules within your eye and supports healthy tissue moisture and tear production. The use of ProOmega in patients that wear contact lenses is overwhelmingly favorable due to the ability of enjoying a more comfortable and longer wearing time.
