Dry eye syndrome occurs when the eyes do not produce enough tears or when tears evaporate too quickly, leading to symptoms such as eye discomfort, redness, irritation, and blurred vision. Our goal is to identify the underlying cause of your dry eye and develop a customized treatment plan to provide long-term relief.


Symptoms of dry eye may include a gritty sensation, burning or stinging in the eyes, excessive tearing, sensitivity to light, and difficulty wearing contact lenses. These symptoms can vary in severity and may worsen in certain environments or with prolonged screen use.

Common Treatments

Our dry eye treatment options address both the underlying causes and symptoms of the condition. Treatment may include artificial tear supplements, prescription medications such as anti-inflammatory drops, lifestyle modifications, and in-office procedures such as punctal plugs.


Dry eye can be caused by various factors, including aging, hormonal changes, environmental factors such as dry air or windy conditions, medications, and underlying health conditions such as autoimmune diseases or eyelid abnormalities.

Diagnosis typically involves a comprehensive eye examination, including evaluation of tear production and quality, assessment of symptoms, and sometimes specialized tests such as tear osmolarity or meibography to evaluate the health of the tear film and glands.

While dry eye syndrome may not have a permanent cure, it can usually be managed effectively with appropriate treatment and ongoing care. Our goal is to improve your symptoms and maintain ocular comfort to enhance your overall quality of life.

The timeline for improvement can vary depending on the severity of your condition and the effectiveness of the chosen treatment approach. Many patients experience relief within a few weeks to months of starting treatment, although some may require ongoing management.
