Dry Eyes Need Customized Treatments
March 19, 2015

If I asked you what is the most common eye disorder that optometrists and ophthalmologists treat, you  would probably say cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration, right? Well the reality is besides nearsightedness, farsightedness, and presbyopia (loss of focusing with age), it is dry eyes. For many patients, dry eyes are so severe that it limits their ability to function in regular life. We see this with systemic arthropathies (RA, Pemphigoid, Sjogren’s syndrome, Scleroderma) or as a result of hypertension, bladder control, or antidepressant medications.

Our doctors evaluate whether your dry eyes are mild, moderate, or severe. We use a well-documented, evidence-based medicine approach called the Ocular Surface Disease Index which provides a rating scale for your symptoms. This rating scale helps us in matching the right type of treatment for our patients. Treating with lubricant drops while sitting at the computer may be fine for an accountant who only reports dryness or blurred vision once a week but that would not be sufficient for a someone with bad allergies, is menopausal, or reports chronic irritation.

We’re here to keep your eyes seeing and feeling good. If you are struggling with dry eyes, email one of our doctors at techoncall@donelsoneyecare.com or make an appointment online at www.donelsoneyecare.com.
