Dry eye can be a debilitating condition. Dry eye is a broad term used to describe the inability of the eye to maintain healthy lubrication. This causes the surface of the eye to become inflamed and irritated.
The causes of dry eyes are complex and need a thorough examination to determine the cause and devise the most appropriate treatment. Eye drops alone are often not enough. Once the root cause of the dry eye is found and treated, eye drops can supplement the treatment.
