Patients who experience dry eye, or lack of natural tears to properly lubricate the eye, can experience physical discomfort and compromised quality of vision. After LASIK, dry eye may be exacerbated in patients who experienced problems prior to their surgery and dry eye can also occur temporarily in patients who have never been afflicted with symptoms. In order to promote optimal eye health and therefore minimize the probability that dry eye will occur, patients at Price Vision Group are often started on medications and supplements a few weeks prior to surgery. Restasis® is an eye drop used to help increase the eyes’ natural ability to produce tears, which may be decreased because of inflammation due to dry eye. This drop is often used in conjunction with HydroEye, a patented nutritional supplement that provides a blend of omega fatty acids, antioxidants and other nutrients which collectively maintain a healthy tear film and reduce inflammation.
