I have dry eyes what should I do?

The first line of defense for most causes of dry eyes is to lubricate your eyes with artificial tears. We recommend using tears that are preservative free in single unit doses. Fish oil can be beneficial for some patients but it may have a blood thinning effect so it may be wise to consult with our doctors or your regular primary doctor before starting fish oil.

There are medical treatments now for dry eye syndrome that are quite effective. If you have already tried artificial tears with limited or no success we recommend scheduling an appointment with one of our doctors for a dry eye evaluation (this is generally covered under your medical insurance plan rather than vision insurance).  For women, it can be helpful to come in without any eyemakeup or foundation around your eyes for this type of appointment.  You can schedule at our Bellevue office by calling 425-641-2020 or email us.
