Welcome to icliniq.com.
I am sorry, but there is no permanent treatment or cure for dry eyes, but yes with treatment, your life will become comfortable. To treat dry eyes, we need to find the type and severity of dry eyes. The type of dry eyes is established by the clinical examination of the lids, tear film meniscus, and anterior surface of the eye. We may need to perform a few tests like tear film break-up time, Schirmer test, and corneal and conjunctival staining with fluorescein and rose bengal dye. All these tests help us in establishing the type of dry eyes. The treatment of dry eyes is dependent on the type of dry eyes. We treat meibomitis, if present, with warm compresses followed by lid massage with index finger tightly from up to down, followed by application of Azithromycin ointment over the lid margins. A lubricating eyedrop or ointment is prescribed to use frequently, like Systane ultra (Polyethylene Glycol and Propylene Glycol) or Iflomax (Carbomer Topical and Vitamin A topical) ointment. We also advise exercising a few precautions like using goggles or antiglare glasses, cold compresses, decreasing illumination of the mobile or laptop screen, and avoiding direct exposure of the eyes to air. If Inflammation is present, Cyclosporine eyedrops are also prescribed. All these measures together help.
