Dry eye, also known as dry eye syndrome or keratoconjunctivitis sicca, is a common condition characterized by insufficient lubrication and moisture on the eye's surface. This condition can lead to discomfort, irritation, and potential eye surface damage.
A dry eye can be a frustrating condition. If you're dealing with dry eye, you should contact an optometry professional to learn about your treatment options. At Family EyeCare at Westchase in Tampa, FL, we're proud to offer all your eye care needs. We'll look at different options that we can use to ease your dry eye symptoms and provide you with the relief you're looking for.
Dry Eye Treatment
It's important to note that the treatment approach for dry eye can vary depending on the underlying cause and the severity of the condition. A comprehensive eye examination by an eye care specialist is essential to determine the most appropriate treatment plan tailored to your needs.
When you come in for your appointment for dry eye treatment, our optometrist will work closely with you to find the root cause of your symptoms. From there, we'll work with you to develop a treatment plan specific to your needs. Dry eye treatments may include:
Using over-the-counter or prescription eye drops may give you the relief you need from occasional dry eye symptoms. If you need eye drops daily, your optometry professional may recommend trying other treatments to relieve the dry eye.
Sometimes, dry eye symptoms are related to problems easily fixed with lifestyle changes. Using a humidifier in your home, drinking more water, or changing your allergy medication can help you find relief from your dry eye symptoms. Your optometrist will discuss the steps you can take to change your natural tear production process.
