Ocular Surface Disease (Dry Eyes)

Are your eyes dry, burning, irritated, or watery? Retain your tears for simple, long-term relief.

A lack of tears, improper lubrication, or tears draining too quickly from the eye results in a condition known as DRY EYE. Dry Eye is a common problem that is easily diagnosed.

Causes: 
Aging, Contact Lenses, Medications, Environment, Arthritis

Treatment: 
In the past, moisturizing eye drops have provided a quick, short-term solution to dry eye. Today, tear-duct closure through the use of punctal plugs, allows you to retain your own natural tears, and it may be the best solution for you.

Good news: Most major medical PPO insurances cover the cost of this procedure, once your annual deductible has been met.
