If you have irritated, gritty or watery eyes and fluctuating vision, you may have Dry Eye Disease. The majority of Dry Eye Disease is caused by a malfunction of the oil-producing glands in the eyes and can progress until the glands ultimately atrophy and disappear, leaving the patient miserable.
Until recently, many dry eye treatments were aimed primarily at improving comfort without any lasting effects. However, these previous therapies do not actually treat the disease or prevent progression.
Recent innovations in Dry Eye Disease Treatment, including Lipiflow technology allow us to actually treat the most common root cause of Dry Eye Disease and prevent further progression.
Bedford Eye Care is holding a free public lecture to explain Dry Eye Disease, including its diagnosis and treatment.
