Dry Eye Clinic
Dry eye syndrome is a condition in which the tear film of the eye is diminished causing the cornea to be exposed to the environment. This lack of lubrication and protection can lead to severe inflammation of the eye.
Regardless of the treatment plan recommended for you, it is important to remember that ocular dryness tends to be a chronic condition. This means you will likely be prescribed a routine requiring you to make subtle, but important, changes in your lifestyle which will improve the condition and comfort of your eyes. The regimen that will work for you will be described to you and most likely altered at each follow up as you improve.
