Hello and welcome to the BayCare Clinic
Minute. Today we’re going to learn a little bit about treatments for dry eyes –
Dr. LaVallie. Thank you. Dry eye has to be one of the most common eye problems
we see on a daily basis. Nowadays everyone is on their phone or their
computer or some form of electronic device all day long as we do that we
don’t blink because we’re concentrating that will dry our eyes out. With every
birthday everyone’s eyes get a little drier. Women once they hit menopause
their eyes get much drier that’s probably the largest group of dry
patients I see personally. There’s certain medications that can cause dry eye.
If you’re feeling dryness at home you can try an artificial tear a few times
over-the-counter not the baizen’s not to get the red out drops some non-medicated
lubricants; fish oil works great as well, omega-3 fatty acids. If that’s not
solving your issues come in for an evaluation will create a game plan for
you. Alright, great information thank you for stopping by. Thanks, that’s our time.
We’ll see you again soon.
