Dry Eyes have been very prevalent in Arizona, especially in women over the age of 40, patients after LASIK, and side effects of certain medications. Blepharitis can cause evaporative dry eyes and thus requires antibiotics. Underlying systemic causes or lid malpositions can be corrected too. This can all be sorted out at the Newman Eye Center.
Treatment consists of drops or punctual plugs. Nutritional therapy such as omega 3, fish oil, or flaxseed oil combination capsules are available.
Dr. Newman has been very involved in the treatment of dry eyes for years, and will design a custom treatment plan for you. Enjoy comfortable whiter eyes without watering, burning, or blurred vision.
