Dry Eye Syndrome occurs when the tears are not able to provide adequate moisture to the surface of the eyes. It can occur when the lacrimal glands do not produce enough tears (Aqueous Deficient Dry Eye) or the tears are of poor quality and evaporate off the eye too quickly (Evaporative Dry Eye).
The treatment of Dry Eye Syndrome depends on the type of dry eye being experienced. Treatment can range from palliative, over-the-counter options for milder forms of dry eye to prescription or in-office procedures for more moderate to severe forms. The doctors at EYESPOT are highly trained in diagnosing the specific types of dry eye inflammation as well as designing a highly customized treatment plan based on a patient's history as well as the results of their testing in our innovative office.
