Most Definitely! We see patients in our office daily who have sometimes been dealing with discomfort from their eyes for years. And, there can be many reasons! If the problem is that they have lost the ability to keep the natural lubricating coating on the front surface of their eyes, we utilize a number of new ophthalmic medicated eye drops that can be beneficial in treating that condition.
Some patients benefit from our insertion of Punctal Plugs to save the tears from being sucked out of their eyes. And, patients with severe irritation from dryness, recurrent corneal erosion from past injury, or patients adversely affect by a viral infection of their eyes are many times gaining significant improvement by a treatment we use involving the healing properties of amniotic tissue in a corneal bandage called Prokera. So, yes, there are new treatment options that we use to help patients that have not responded as well to the treatment they have been offered in the past. And, in most instances, their health insurance will help pay for our services. Come let us take a LOOK at what you and your eyes need to be healthy and comfortable.
