We’ve made it our mission to provide you with a range of dry eye treatment options so you can get back to having the eye comfort you deserve.

The most common treatment is use of artificial teardrops that help make up for the lack of natural lubricating tears. Artificial tear products come in liquid form, longer lasting gelform and long-lasting ointment form.

When infection, inflammation of the eyelids or clogged oil glands contribute to dry eye, special lid cleaning techniques, prescription anti-inflammatory medications,  or antibiotics may be recommended. It may also help to avoid hot, dry or windy environments or to humidify the air in your home or office.

Restasis or Xiidra are prescription options for treatment of Dry Eye Disease. These drops help the eyes produce more tears by reducing inflammation, which is often a cause of dry eye. Even though these medications are readily available, your insurance may not cover them unless you can get a prior authorization for coverage and they are usually a “high tier” medication, meaning the co-pays may be high.

Dissolvable Punctual Occlusion (DPO) is a medical procedure for dry eye that may enable your eyes to make better and longer use of the few lubricating tears they do produce. Newly diagnosed patients undergo the initial procedure with temporary, dissolvable collagen punctual plugs that are inserted into the puncta, the tiny openings that drain tears from your eyes. These will last approximately 2 weeks. This will give you the opportunity to report whether or not the procedure offers any improvement in symptoms. If improvement is noticed, the follow-up procedure is with extended released collagen punctal plugs that will last approximately 4 months. Thereafter, follow-up treatments are scheduled approximately every 4 months to maintain comfort and relief from dry eye symptoms. Health insurance approves the cost of these procedures.
