Dry Eye Disease

Dryness of the ocular surface is often multifactorial. Medications, personal hydration, age, gender, prior surgeries, associated inflammatory disease, and environmental exposures use are just some of the factors that may be making your eyes red, irritated, and watery.


At Athena Eye Institute, we combine tear production testing, clinical examination, and laboratory evaluation to identify the specific factors contributing to your ocular surface dryness. Based on your unique factors, we work with you to improve your symptoms. Generally, we recommend a stepwise approach, beginning with more conservative measures and adding medications and interventions only as indicated.
