Dry eye syndrome, also known as dry eye disease, is a common condition that we see at Shaaf Eye Center. The condition occurs when the eyes do not produce enough tears, or the tears produced are of poor quality. Tears play a crucial role in maintaining the health of the eyes by lubricating, moisturizing, and protecting the surface of the eyes.
Treatments for dry eye syndrome aim to alleviate the symptoms and improve the quality and quantity of tears. Some common treatments include:
In some cases, surgery may be necessary to treat dry eye syndrome. This can include procedures to close the tear ducts or to improve the quality of the tears. However, surgery is typically reserved for severe cases of dry eye that do not respond to other treatments.
