With dry eye treatment, Dr. Noll focuses on creating a healthy tear film using conservative measures. Your treatment may include:
Eye drops can add artificial tears to lubricate your eyes.
Boosting tear production
Some prescription eye drops can increase the amount of tears you produce to help you develop a quality tear film.
Some treatments, such as insertable punctal plugs, prevent tear drainage. This conserves your own natural tears to improve lubrication.
If you have an underlying issue like MGD or blepharitis, Dr. Noll treats the triggering condition first, and the dry eyes typically resolve after that. Treatments for these underlying conditions can include eyelid massage, special eyelid cleansers, and other prescription options.
There are many different dry eye treatments available today, and one of them is ideal for your situation. Call the office of Dr. Aimee Noll, OD, or use the online appointment tool to set up your dry eye consultation now.
