Dry eye syndrome is a condition in which the eyes do not produce enough tears, causing chronic dryness and discomfort. If left untreated, this condition can lead to complications, such as scarring and vision loss.
NYU Langone ophthalmologists can quickly determine the cause of dry eye syndrome and offer several options for managing the condition. Our doctors work with you to create a treatment plan that suits your needs, with the goal of relieving symptoms and preserving eye health.
For mild symptoms, lifestyle modifications and artificial tears may be all that’s needed. Medication and minimally invasive procedures may be the best treatment for those with more severe dry eye syndrome.
