You could be suffering from Dry Eye Syndrome.

One of the most common clinical challenges faced in eye care is dry eye syndrome. Characterized by irritated, scratchy, itchy eyes, dry eye occurs when eyes are not properly lubricated because of insufficient tear production, or unbalanced tear composition. More dry eye symptoms are tearing, burning, and vision fluctuation.

South Georgia/North Florida Eye Partners’ Certified Dry Eye Clinic may be just what you need to solve your dry eye condition. Our doctors have extensive experience in the diagnosis and treatment of dry eye disease, and being certified demonstrates their expertise and dedication to providing the highest quality of dry eye care using advanced ophthalmic diagnostic techniques and treatments.

Thanks to new technology, dry eye can now be treated in ways never before available. The latest diagnostic tool – The TearLab Osmolarity System – measures tear osmolarity by taking a small sample of the patient’s tears to see how “dry” they really are. Treatment is then prescribed based on the measurements from the TearLab and range from Omega 3 supplements, tear replacement drops, punctual plugs, anti- inflammatory drops, oral antibiotics and prescription strength artificial tears.

If you are ready to address your dry eye problems, South Georgia/North Florida Eye Partners has four convenient locations in Valdosta, Tifton, Douglas and Madison, FL  Read more about our Dry Eye Clinic here.
