At Good Life Eyecare we believe your eyesight is PRECIOUS! We want to help you make the best decisions about your eyes so you can keep your sight for life.

Discovering the truth about Dry Eye Disease can be a lot to take in at one time. Here is a short overview along with additional resources to help navigate all the available treatments.

What is Dry Eye Disease? Dry Eye Disease is a condition where the tears on the surface of the eyes are either deficient in amount or quality (or both). When this happens, the surface of the eye often becomes red and inflamed causing burning, excessive tearing, itching, pain, and light sensitivity. Dry Eye Disease is the number one reason for contact lens discomfort and is often why patients drop out of contact lens wear at some point in their life.

Unfortunately, Dry Eye Disease is a complex condition for which there is no cure. However, with the right combination of treatments, a patient can reduce and often eliminate the symptoms.

There are 4 stages of treatments for dry eye. Click on the links to learn more about them.

During a Dry Eye Evaluation at Good Life Eyecare, we will thoroughly assess the front surface of the eye and help determine the best course of treatment for each patients particular situation. Our goal is to help everyone find dry eye relief as soon as possible!
