Dry Eye Treatment Options
Dry eye disease has no cure. People can manage the symptoms but can’t get rid of them entirely.
The most common treatment for dry eye disease is over-the-counter artificial tears. For some patients, certain FDA-approved drugs have limitations and new treatment alternatives, if approved, would be beneficial.
For severe cases of dry eye disease, patients may be given steroid eye drops. However, for certain patients, this treatment may not be optimal, and alternatives may be sought.
