“I had dry eyes before Lasik surgery in 2007. After Lasik, I was diagnosed with chronic dry eyes and blepharitis. My eyes were red, dry and painful. I tried many eye drops including prescription drop, antibiotic drops with no results. I started TheraLife Eye and can feel the difference in 2-3 weeks. I still cannot believe I have such total relief. I am so grateful for TheraLife.” -C.L, Ohio *Results may vary

Other Dry Eye Treatments
- Artificial Tears – Application of artificial tears should be limited to no more than 3-4 times per day and can provide temporary relief. A word of caution: frequent use of eye drops can make your eyes drier.
- Autologous Serum Eye Drops – Autologous serum eye drops contain over 300 components, all of which have been shown to play important roles in the maintenance of a healthy ocular surface. None of the commercially available artificial tear preparations include these essential factors. At least one study has demonstrated that the autologous serum eye drops are more effective than artificial tears in a randomized control study; however, there remains some controversy about the efficacy of this treatment modality.
- Thick Gel Eye Drops – Lubricating tear ointments can be used during the day, but they are generally used at bedtime because the user typically experiences poor vision after application. They contain white petrolatum, mineral oil, and similar lubricants. Thick gel eye drops serve as a lubricant and an emollient. Application requires pulling down the eyelid and applying a small amount (0.25 in) inside. Depending on the severity of the condition, it may be applied from every hour to just at bedtime. It should not be used with contact lenses. Specially designed glasses that form a moisture chamber around the eye may be used to create additional humidity.
- Omega-3 Fish Oil – Key Role in Dry Eye Relief – Consumption of dark-fleshed fish containing omega-3-fatty acid is associated with a decreased incidence of dry eye syndrome in women. Early experimental work on omega-3 has shown that it yields promising results when used in a topical application or given in the form of oral supplements. TheraLife provides a molecularly distilled Omega 3 Fish Oil.
- Blocking Tear Drainage – In each eye, there are two small punctal openings that drain tears into the tear ducts. There are methods to partially or completely close the tear ducts. This blocks the flow of tears into the nose, and thus more tears are available to the eyes. The two methods of blocking tear drainage are: punctal plugs and cauterization.
- Punctal Plugs: Punctal plugs are inserted into the punctal to block tear drainage. For people who have not found dry eye relief with drugs, punctal plugs may help. They are reserved for people with moderate or severe dry eye, when other medical treatment has not been adequate. Statistically it has been shown that 50% of the punctal plugs fall out within the first year.
- Cauterization: If punctal plugs are effective, thermal or electric cauterization of puncti can be performed as a more permanent solution. In thermal cauterization, a local anesthetic is used, and then a hot wire is applied. This shrinks the drainage area tissues and causes scarring, which closes the tear duct. This procedure is done only infrequently.
- Customized Contact Lenses – Persons with severe dry eyes may benefit from the Boston Scleral Lens which is a customized contact lens. Resting on the sclera, it creates a fluid filled layer over the cornea, thus preventing it from drying.
- Surgery – In severe cases of dry eye syndrome, surgery may be performed where the eyelids are partially sewn together. This reduces the eyelid separation, hopefully leading to a reduction in tear evaporation. This procedure is not done very often, and should be done only in consultation with an eye physician.
