Dry Eye Treatments

Dry eyes are one of the many conditions we treat at Œil Santé MD. There are a variety of treatments available to alleviate this uncomfortable condition.


Dry eye is a common eye condition that occurs when your eyes don’t produce enough tears, or the tears evaporate too quickly.

Tears play a crucial role in maintaining eye health by lubricating the surface of the eye, thereby reducing the risk of infection, and allowing for clear vision. However, when your eyes are unable to stay properly lubricated, it can lead to a variety of uncomfortable symptoms.


  • Dryness
  • Eye fatigue
  • Excessive tearing
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Blurry or fluctuating vision
  • Itching or burning sensation
  • Feeling like something is stuck in your eyes
  • Increased discomfort when wearing contact lenses


Our specialists will conduct a comprehensive examination to determine the underlying cause of your dry eye symptoms.

The diagnostic process may include:

  • Detailed discussion of your symptoms and medical history
  • Evaluation of your tear production using specialized tests
  • Examination of the ocular surface and eyelids
  • Assessing the quality of your tears and tear film stability
  • Other tests as needed to identify contributing factors

By thoroughly understanding your condition, we can develop an individualized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.


Effective dry eye treatment aims to address the underlying causes as well as alleviate symptoms.

We offer a range of cutting-edge treatments to provide you with optimal relief and improve your overall eye health.

Potential treatment options may include:


Artificial Tears

Lubricating eye drops to supplement natural tear production and relieve dryness.


Prescription Medications

Anti-inflammatory eye drops or oral medications to reduce inflammation and promote tear production.


Punctal Plugs

Small plugs inserted into the tear ducts to prevent the drainage of tears, helping to maintain moisture on the ocular surface.


Lifestyle Changes

Recommendations for changes in your environment, such as using a humidifier, taking regular breaks during screen time, and wearing protective eyewear.
