Dry Eye Syndrome - Eye Image

Dry eye syndrome is a combination of signs and symptoms that lead to mild, moderate or severe ocular discomfort and pain. Patients commonly feel an irritation in their eyes as if a foreign body was present. The condition can be caused by a large variety of factors, including pollution, pollen, wind, ultraviolet light and smoke. Systemic health factor can contribute as well.

Dr. Sheila Shifrin will design a tailored approach to each patient's cause of dry eye syndrome.

Tearing of the Eye Treatments

Dr. Sheila Shifrin performs placement of punctal plugs in the office for dry eye syndrome. Treatment of tearing involves correction of the underlying cause.

Dr. Sheila Shifrin will check your lacrimal duct system (tear drainage system) and the integrity of your lower eyelid. For those with tear duct system issues, she devise a plan of care aimed at correcting the obstruction. In the case of lower eyelid laxity leading to tear spillage, she will discuss an alternative plan of care, commonly a lid tightening procedure.
