Dry eye has many forms--it can be a scratchy gritty feeling, eye irritation and blurry vision when you wake up or pain that lasts all day, resulting in red, unhealthy looking eyes. If you find yourself reaching for eye drops multiple times per day or wishing you could comfortably wear contact lenses again there may be new options for you.

Specialty Contact Lenses
If you had to discontinue contact lens wear due to dry eye there are many new options that may allow you to wear contact lenses some or all of the time.
In addition, there are now contact lenses that can help reduce dry eye signs and symptoms, reducing your need for over the counter and prescription eye drops.
Ocular Surface Disease
Often times dry eye results in Ocular Surface Disease. This chronic inflammation may need to be treated with a specific regimen that can include supplements, dietary changes, eyelid treatments and prescription eye drops. If not treated properly, Ocular Surface Disease can result in severe pain and eye redness.
If you are using over the counter eye drops more than twice a day you may be suffering from Ocular Surface Disease.
