Useful information about Dry Eye Treatment

All individuals with dry eye are eligible for treatment.

Certain prescription topical (eye drop) or oral medications for dry eye may be unsuitable for certain individuals due to pre-existing allergies or sensitivities, potential interactions with other prescribed medications or pre-existing general health conditions.

Your dry eye treatment plan will be tailored to your individual needs and the severity of your condition and is likely to include a combination of home-based and clinic-based treatments and prescription and over the counter medications and devices.

Following your initial dry eye consultation, we will provide you with a written dry eye treatment plan. This will involve home-based care and typically includes eye drops, treatment devices and possibly oral medications.

If we recommend clinic-based treatments, we will schedule these accordingly.

We will provide information sheets on treatments and clinic-based procedures if necessary.

With treatment, dry eye symptoms and signs can improve. Without treatment, your condition may worsen and affect your vision and comfort more significantly in the longer term.

Post-surgical dry eye will improve gradually without treatment over time (weeks or months) in most patients, but treatment can accelerate this recovery.

Will provide you with information sheets on treatments, clinic-based procedures and informed consent material.
In some cases, there may be several management approaches that can improve your dry eye symptoms. We will present these to you if appropriate.

Dry eye treatment plans will typically start with home-based treatment initiated on the day of your initial consultation and clinic-based treatments following a re-evaluation of your response to home-based treatments – typically 4-12 weeks after commencing home-based treatment.

We recommend dry eye treatments prescribed at OKKO according to current evidence-based guidelines.
Treatment results will vary depending on your co-existing ocular and medical conditions, the severity of dry eye disease on presentation, and adherence to prescribed treatments both home-based and clinic-based.
