Dry Eye Treatment

As simple as “dry eyes“ may seem, this condition is a common complaint that ranges in severity from subtle but chronic irritation to the inability to keep the eyes comfortably open. Causes of dry eyes may be complicated and multifactorial, ranging from poor contact lens hygiene, menopause, autoimmune disease associated with rheumatologic disorders, and a host of other factors. Over-the-counter remedies can often exacerbate symptoms of a dry eye, but many may offer mild relief.
