The eyes are reliant upon proper tear production to support ideal health, visual clarity, and function. When the eyes become dry, due to either quick evaporation of tears or insufficient tear production, superficial ocular tissue and the eyelids can quickly become irritated. At Aloha Laser Vision, our eye doctors have extensive experience diagnosing and treating the causes of dry eyes. They are familiar with all of the latest treatments for dry eye syndrome and can help you find a solution to your discomfort.

Symptoms of Dry Eye

If you are experiencing one or several of these symptoms, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with one of our doctors to perform a thorough exam to determine the cause of your discomfort. Your doctor may perform tests to measure the volume and quality of your tears in order to discover the primary cause of your dry eyes and determine a fitting course of treatment.

Treatments for Dry Eye

There are several treatments for dry eyes available, and choosing the right one for you will depend upon your diagnosis and the success of previous treatments you may have tried. Treating dry eyes can sometimes be a process of trial and error until finding an option or combination of options that work.
