dry eye treatment


Dry eyes is a condition that affects over 20 million persons in the U.S. alone. To treat the condition, many individuals have resorted to eye drops that may not necessarily help their condition. In fact, many artificial tears actually cause dry eye due to preservatives in the eye drops. So no matter how people try, they never seem to get relief. It is interesting to note that dry eyes can complicate surgical operations like LASIK (laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis) which is a type of refractive surgery for correcting myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism.

So, how can sufferers get relief? I did blog about The Stahl Eye Center sometime end of last month. Obviously that's the answer.

Doctors at Stahl Eye Center are very knowledgeable on the issue, as they have conducted detailed studies on Restasis for Lasik patients; which, by the way, is the only prescription medication that has been approved by the FDA to treat the underlying cause of some dry eye conditions. More over their doctors are graduates from top universities such as UCLA, John Hopkins, and Yale. Need I say more people?
