DRY EYE

Personalized eye care for you and your family

Dry eye is a very common problem, especially during the Albertan winters. The doctors at Varsity Optical have a special interest in dry eye and look forward to working with you to help alleviate your symptoms.

Dry eye is a complex disease that is due to a disruption of the tear film. The tear film is made up of 3 layers and different eye drops are needed to treat dry eye depending on what layers are not working properly. VISIT US TODAY for a thorough evaluation and treatment plan.  Many dry eye evaluations and follow ups are covered by Alberta Healthcare. 

 

TREATMENT

 

The first step is determining the type of dry eye and best treatment plan specific to your eyes and your lifestyle.  Both prescription and over the counter eye drops may be used to help alleviate the dry eye.  Even oral medications may be used in some instances.  We usually see a patient back for a follow up (covered by Alberta Healthcare) to assess the treatment and determine the best long-term management of your dry eye.
