Dry Eye Treatment

Dry eye treatment is one of the many eye care services offered at our eye clinic. Dry eye occurs when either the eye does not produce enough tears, or when the tears evaporate too quickly. The most common complaints with dry eyes include: fluctuating vision that changes with blinks, blur, redness, irritation, watering, and/or pain. Since the causes of dry eye are vast and often multifactorial, it is important that your optometrist fully evaluate your medical history, medications, supplements, tear quantity & quality, and eyelid health to create a treatment plan that is right for you.

Your eye doctor in Walnut Creek can diagnose your dry eye, and administer the appropriate therapy so that you may get dry eye relief. Some of the treatments they may suggest include:

      • artificial tears
      • omega-3 supplementation
      • lid cleanser & warm compresses
      • corticosteroid drops
      • cyclosporine (Restasis, Cequa, etc)
      • lifitegrast (Xiidra)
      • nasolacrimal stimulatory (Tyrvaya)
