Dry Eye Treatment in Brooklyn NY
Do you find that your eyes become dry or “scratchy” during the day? You may be suffering from dry eye syndrome which is characterized by a chronic lack of lubrication and moisture on the surface of the eye. Nearly 35% of people will suffer from some form of dry eye in their lifetime.
At Park Slope Eye we have successfully treated dry eye in thousands of patients, helping to reduce or eliminate the redness, stinging, burning and sticky lids symptoms that accompany dry eye.
There are many causes of dry eye, including:
- Gland dysfunction
- Medications, including antihistamines
- Prolonged exposure to computer screens
- Contact lenses
- Sleep apnea
- Poor nutrition
- Age or gender
Treatment of dry eye syndrome depends on its cause, but may include artificial tears, changes in nutrition, prescription eye drops, warm compresses. For some severe cases of dry eye we may recommend the use of a punctal plug, a small medical device inserted to block the tear duct and prevent drainage of liquid from the eye.
