Treatment for Dry Eyes

Dry Eyes can not be cured, although successful alleviation of symptoms can be achieved through a number of treatment options. If you are suffering from symptoms of dry eyes you should schedule an appointment with Lakeline Vision Dry Eye Clinic’s dry eye specialist, Dr. Dipa Kodukula, immediately. Our dry eye specialist will be able to prescribe a treatment plan based on your particular symptoms and circumstances. Such treatments may include:

  • Artificial Tears
  • Medicated Eye Drops or Ointments
  • Lid Scrubs
  • Oral Supplements
  • Oral and Topical Medications
  • Punctual Occlusion: a simple in-office procedure to block tear ducts

You can also reduce dryness and irritation by adhering to the following measures.

All Dry Eye Patients should:

  • Drink plenty of fluids
  • Minimize the use of ceiling fans
  • Direct car and home air conditioners and heating vents away from your face
  • Use a humidifier to reduce dryness from the air
  • Consider having your air ducts cleaned
  • Replace air filters with a dust mite barrier
  • Consider aquariums or plant life in your work or home environment

If your contact lenses are the cause of your dry eyes, Dr. Kodukula can prescribe you one of the new brands of contacts designed to reduce dry eye symptoms.
