Ask Dr. Prayag Shah a Question About Dry Eye
Q: What are the typical treatments used to help people suffering from Dry Eyes?
A: Treatment for dry eye depends on the cause, severity, and stage of the disease. Artificial tears can be helpful in the early stages. If over-the-counter eye drops are insufficient, we progress to a prescription medication such as Restasis or Xiidra. Lid hygiene as well as omega-3 fish oil supplementation can improve symptoms. Anti-inflammatory medications as well as punctal plugs are also available if needed for treatment.
Q: When should a person come in to see their optometrist for Dry Eye symptoms and when is it enough to take care of this problem yourself?
A: Get a dry eye evaluation by a therapeutic optometrist at the first signs of dry eyes. Those who wear, or over-wear, contact lenses are at higher risk for dry eye syndrome, as are post-menopausal women. Systemic conditions, autoimmune disorders, and certain medications cause dry eyes. Mild, temporary symptoms may be treated with over-the-counter drops, but it’s still best to ask your eye doctor first, because not all eye drops are suitable, and they can sometimes mask a serious condition or lead to toxic corneal reactions.
