What are Dry Eyes?

Advanced Dry EyesConstant moisture is necessary for clear vision and comfortable eyes. However, as we age our tear production often becomes inadequate. The result is the second most common problem an eye doctor treats - dry eye syndrome.

When dry eyes occur, patients experience symptoms such as redness, sandy or gritty sensation, burning, pain, soreness, itching, stickiness, blurry vision, and tearing. Artificial tears can provide temporary relief, but frequent artificial tear use can be impractical.

Treatment

At Milano Eye Care, Dr. Milano uses an advanced technique for the treatment of dry eyes. Since dry eyes are caused by the slowing of the tear production system, slowing or stopping tear drainage can help the condition. This allows your natural tears to provide an adequate tear film again.

To accomplish this, special microscopic dissolving plugs are placed in the tear drains. These plugs dissolve in a short period of time, allowing the patient to judge the benefits before placing a permanent plug. If this improves the symptoms, permanent plugs are then inserted.

A very high percentage of patients who undergo this procedure experience a significant improvement in their dry eye symptoms. Many find such a high level of relief they no longer need artificial tears and attain clear vision and healthier eyes.

The procedure is performed in the exam room and takes less than five minutes. It requires only an eye drop for anesthesia and is typically described as painless. Patients can return to normal activity immediately following the procedure.
