What is Dry Eye Treatment?

Dry eye treatment in Loveland aims to treat the source of your dry eye rather than just the symptoms. At its core, dry eye results from producing low-quality or not enough tears to keep your eyes lubricated. This lack of moisture leads to irritation, the feeling of something in your eye, burning, stinging, light sensitivity, and overall discomfort.

If you experience frequent dry eye symptoms, you know how difficult it becomes to complete everyday tasks, especially computer work. Dry eye treatment can provide a longterm solution that keeps you comfortable all day long

What to Expect with Dry Eye Treatment

Our eye doctors in Loveland will conduct an eye exam and collect details about your everyday life to determine the cause of your dry eye symptoms. Causes can range from environmental factors and medications to clogged tear ducts and aging. For some patients, dry eye may be a temporary side effect of LASIK surgery in Loveland.

Depending on the cause, your eye doctor may recommend some form of dry eye treatment in Loveland:

  • Serum Tears—These tear substitutes fit your biology and contain necessary growth factors and nutrients typically found in natural tears for increased lubrication and eye health.
  • Punctal Plugs—These silicone plugs block the tear drainage ducts to keep the natural tears in your eyes for longer.
  • Scleral Lenses—Scleral lenses are essentially large contacts that cover the entire eye to retain moisture. They may also improve vision problems, if necessary.
  • Eyelid Expression—This in-office procedure involves widening the tear glands to encourage more tear production.
  • Prescription Eye Drops—Prescription eye drops works to permanently improve both the quantity and quality of your tears.

Individualized Solutions

Over-the-counter. Dry eye treatment is not one-size-fits-all. That’s why over-the-counter products like artificial tears may not work for you. ICON Eyecare’s eye doctors in Loveland will carefully pair you with the treatment option that works best for you. Certain methods, like serum tears, even involve using your own DNA to create a personalized solution that mimics your natural tears.

Long-lasting Results

Rather than offer temporary solutions, we aim to fix the root of the problem so that you can experience ongoing comfort throughout your day. Once you find an appropriate solution that works for you, you can resume your annual eye exams without the hassle of extra visits.
