What Are Your Treatment Options?

There are several ways to manage Chronic Dry Eye (CDE) that you should discuss with your ophthalmologist or optometrist.

Together, you and your eye doctor will choose the treatment option that's best for you.

Treatment options include:

  • Artificial tears. Also known as over-the-counter eye drops, most of these temporarily provide moisture to the eye and relieve dry eye symptoms. An eye care professional may recommend one of several eye drops for dry eyes, such as REFRESH® Lubricant Eye Drops. Get coupons for REFRESH® Brand products and save up to $8 now
  • Prescription medicine. Some options for treatment of dry eye are only available by prescription from your eye doctor. Talk to your eye doctor about these options
  • Tear duct plugs. Also known as punctal plugs, these are silicone plugs that can be inserted by an eye doctor to close the ducts that drain tears out of the eye
