Dry Eye

Frequent use of electronic products or dry weather will easily cause tired eye and dry eye. However, in addition to external factors, insufficient tear secretion is more likely to cause corneal damage and lead to corneal ulcers, which results in the decrease in vision. If proper treatment is missed, in extreme case, it will result in blindness. Therefore, we must not underestimate the consequences caused by dry eye.

 

Treatment

If you have dry eyes, the doctor will prescribe artificial tears / cream or eye drops containing steroid ingredients to moisturize the eyes, but the use of the amount or method should be determined by the doctor. However, long-term use of steroid-containing eye drops may increase the chance of having glaucoma or cataract. Other treatments including intense regulated pulsed light, or in severe cases, punctual occlusion would be one of the most useful and practical therapies to treat dry eyes.
