Dry Eye Syndrome

Dry Eye

Shree Ram Hospital and Eye Care Centre is dedicated to providing comprehensive services for the diagnosis and treatment of dry eye syndrome, a common condition that can cause discomfort and affect vision quality. Dry eye syndrome occurs when the eyes do not produce enough tears or when the tears evaporate too quickly, resulting in inadequate lubrication and moisture on the surface of the eye.

Our experienced team of ophthalmologists and eye care professionals at Shree Ram Hospital is equipped with state-of-the-art diagnostic tools and expertise to accurately diagnose dry eye syndrome and develop personalized treatment plans tailored to each patient’s unique needs. Our comprehensive eye examinations may include tear film evaluation, measurement of tear production, assessment of ocular surface health, and identification of underlying factors contributing to dry eye symptoms.

Treatment for dry eye syndrome aims to alleviate symptoms, improve tear production and quality, and restore ocular surface health. At Shree Ram Hospital, we offer a range of treatment options for dry eye syndrome, including:

  1. Artificial Tears: Lubricating eye drops or ointments can help supplement natural tear production and provide temporary relief from dry eye symptoms.

  2. Prescription Medications: Anti-inflammatory medications, such as corticosteroid eye drops or oral supplements containing omega-3 fatty acids, may be prescribed to reduce inflammation and improve tear production.

  3. Tear Conservation: Punctal plugs or occlusion devices can be inserted into the tear ducts to block tear drainage and help retain moisture on the ocular surface.

  4. Lifestyle Modifications: Simple lifestyle changes, such as staying hydrated, avoiding environmental triggers (e.g., smoke, wind, air conditioning), and taking regular breaks during prolonged periods of screen time, can help alleviate dry eye symptoms.

  5. Advanced Therapies: In cases of severe or chronic dry eye syndrome, advanced treatment options such as autologous serum tears, intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy, or scleral contact lenses may be recommended to provide long-term relief and improve ocular surface health.

At Shree Ram Hospital, we prioritize patient education and empowerment, providing valuable information and resources to help individuals understand their condition, manage symptoms effectively, and maintain optimal eye health and wellness. If you or a loved one is experiencing symptoms of dry eye syndrome, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with our experienced team for personalized evaluation and treatment. With our commitment to excellence and compassionate care, we are dedicated to helping you achieve relief from dry eye symptoms and enjoy clear, comfortable vision.
