Dry Eye Consultation
If you are using artificial tears or rewetting drops throughout the day and if they do not provide lasting relief, its time to address the real issue – dry eye. Dry eye is a condition that can begin merely as a nuisance, but can potentially progress with serious effects, including vision loss. Dr. Vito J. Guario can asses the quality of your tears and evaluate the function of your tear glands, ducts and eyelids to determine the underlying causes of dry eye and develop a treatment plan designed to leave your eyes feeling refreshed.
There are a number of treatment options available for dry eye today including artificial tears, medications and punctual plugs. Punctal plugs are emerging as a treatment of choice for many of our patients who have felt that instilling drops in their eyes everyday has become a nuisance.
