Dry eye treatment
Dry eyes can be a pain, and at Physicians Eye Clinic in Everett, our team is here to provide the solutions you need to feel your best. Whether you’re dealing with chronic dry eye or you’re taking a new medication that stops your eyes from making enough natural tears, we’ll work with you to find the root cause of your symptoms and provide a unique dry eye treatment plan.

What Causes Dry Eye?

Many people experience dry eye occasionally, while others experience dry eye as a chronic condition. Often, dry eye symptoms can be traced to a single cause. Some people experience dry eye due to dehydration or wearing contact lenses that aren’t the right fit for their eyes. Others experience dry eye due to illness or medication.

Furthermore, certain environmental factors, such as spending too much time in the sun, too much time in the wind, or being near smoke, might make it difficult for your eyes to produce the natural tears they require.

Nonsurgical Dry Eye Treatment Options

There are several ways that you can treat your dry symptoms without surgery, such as using artificial tears, avoiding irritants in your environment, and switching or stopping medications that contribute to your dry eye.

If your dry eye symptoms do not dissipate after using noninvasive methods, your eye doctor may recommend that you consider surgical treatments to help your eyes feel their best.

Surgical Dry Eye Treatment Options

Surgical options that can help treat dry eye include:

  • Insertion of tear plugs to limit the drainage of existing tears in your eyes
  • Permanent closure of tear drainage holes

While these options may seem extreme, untreated dry eye symptoms can lead to long-term eye damage. Following your eye doctor’s recommendations is important to maintain your eye health.
