Dry Eye

Combat Dry Eye Syndrome with Expert Care at Harmon Ophthalmology, P.C.

Dry Eye Syndrome, also known as Dry Eye Disease or Keratoconjunctivitis Sicca, is a prevalent condition that occurs when your eyes don’t produce enough tears or when tears evaporate too quickly. This can lead to inflammation, damage to the eye’s surface, and symptoms like stinging, burning, gritty sensations, redness, and blurred vision. Left untreated, dry eye can cause significant discomfort and impair your vision. But don’t worry—we’re here to help.

Comprehensive Treatment Options for Dry Eye Syndrome

At Harmon Ophthalmology, P.C., we offer a variety of effective treatments tailored to your specific needs:

Artificial Tears and Lubricating Eye Drops:

  • Get immediate relief with over-the-counter artificial tears, supplementing your natural tear production.
  • For more persistent symptoms, we may recommend prescription-strength eye drops.


  • Prescription anti-inflammatory eye drops can help boost tear production and reduce inflammation.

Punctal Plugs:

  • Tiny devices inserted into the tear ducts to block drainage, keeping your eyes moist longer and providing increased relief.

Warm Compresses and Lid Hygiene:

  • Regular use of warm compresses helps open blocked oil glands in the eyelids, improving tear quality.
  • We recommend specific lid hygiene practices to maintain optimal eye health.

Lifestyle and Environmental Changes:

  • Simple adjustments like using a humidifier, taking regular breaks from screen time, and staying hydrated can significantly reduce dry eye symptoms.

LipiFlow® or iLUX®:

  • For severe cases, advanced treatments like intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy, LipiFlow®, or iLUX® target the root causes of dry eye for long-term relief.
  • Please note that LipiFlow® and iLUX® are not covered by insurance.

Nutritional Supplements:

  • Omega-3 fatty acid supplements can improve tear quality and reduce inflammation.
