Dry eye syndrome is caused by an imbalance in your tears — either they evaporate too quickly or they’re not created enough to properly lubricate the eyes. This leaves the eyes feeling red, itchy, and tired, and can contribute to chronic pain and even long-term corneal damage if not treated. At OPMT, we approach dry eye from all directions, using eye drops, LipiFlow treatment, and punctal plugs to address the symptoms as well as the underlying causes.
