Treatment for Dry Eye Syndrome

The treatment for dry eye syndrome is not a one-size-fits-all solution. Every patient is different and this is how you will be evaluated and treated by Dr. Ginsberg. For over ten years, he has listened to the stories of thousands of patients with dry eye complaints and created very personalized plans of treatment. Very few of these patients benefit from only artificial tears three to four times per day which is a common suggestion from eye care providers who do not take the time to listen and diagnose the underlying problem.

This underlying issue could be autoimmune, inflammatory, dysfunctional tear film due to Meibomian Gland Dysfunction, irregularity of the surface of the eye, and occasionally just lack of tear production. Dr. Ginsberg will take the time and interest to solve your problem and make your eyes comfortable. The goal of the therapy is “so that you don’t think about your eyes”!
