Dry Eye Specialist in Pomona, NY
Dry eyes is a common eye disease that affects most people to varying degrees.
Symptoms of dry eyes include:
- blurred vision
- eye redness
- burning or itchy eyes
- eye crusting
- contact lens intolerance.
Treatment targets the underlying problem- inadequate or unstable tear production. Mild disease can be treated with supplemental tear drops, but severe conditions require adjunctive therapy, including punctal plugs, steroids, and medications targeting tear film stability. Moreover, dry eyes can be associated with systemic diseases, such as Sjogren’s disease and Rheumatoid Arthritis, which need to be managed in a coordinated, multidisciplinary approach.
