    When to visit us for dry eye Treatment

    It is important to be able to distinguish the difference between a minor case of dry eyes and a more serious condition. Since people are all prone to having dry eyes at one point or another, there is a chance that it is a minor case. However, there are many cases of dry eyes that start out small and become worse over time.

    Subsequently, any case that results in an inability to focus and function normally throughout the day or that last for more than a week likely requires professional treatment. Patients need to visit us if they begin to experience:

  • Severe burning of the eyes
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Inability to wear contacts
  • Trouble functioning at work
  • Blurry or double vision
  • In some instances, dry eyes are a symptom of a more serious underlying issue that requires prompt diagnosis and treatment. It is important to take eye care seriously and notify us when symptoms continue to persist. While people may be tempted to wait out the condition with store-bought eye drops or other products, they may be investing in the wrong brand.

    Instead of wasting money, unsure if the specific product will actually treat the issue, we can help patients find the correct treatment they need.

    Dry Eye Treatment

    There are a number of potential causes of dry eyes. The range of treatment options is also fairly extensive. Our goal with dry eye treatment in New Rochelle, NY is to determine the underlying cause of the condition before treating it, instead of only relieving the symptoms.

    Dry eye treatment options include:

  • Prescription medications
  • Vision care treatment
  • Lifestyle changes
  • Using certain brands of eye drops
  • If the underlying cause is due to one’s lifestyle - such as not taking enough breaks while staring at a screen all day, then lifestyle changes with other treatment methods may help. However, more serious cases require extensive dry eye treatment. This can include prescription anti-inflammatory medication, prescription eye drops, therapy and other techniques to help relieve pain and pressure.
