Dry Eye Management

Results when there is inadequate lubrication of the surface of the eye (either from an inadequate amount of tears, or from poor quality of the tear film). It results in symptoms of foreign body sensation, burning, itching or redness. In more severe cases, vision can fluctuate and maybe compromised. Dry eye also increases the risk of eye infection, and contact lenses wear becomes difficult.

Dry eye usually develops with age, and is more common in women. Certain medications can exacerbate the symptoms, so do certain lifestyle measures such as prolonged computer work or air conditioning.

Treatment involves using artificial tears to lubricate the eye and help maintain moisture. If symptoms persist the doctor can inserts small punctal plugs in the openings of the tear ducts to limit the drainage of tears. More severe dry eye needs specialised treatment which is offered by Dr Robaei.
