Nutrition for Dry Eyes by Michael Lange OD, CNS

Nutrition for dry eye is a subject I discuss with my patients on a daily basis.  I have a very large dry eye patient population and have learned what works and what does not work over the last 25 years.  I have used the traditional approach using a combination of heating and massaging the lid margins to open the meibomian glands, using a good artificial tear with hyaluronic acid like oasis tears plus or blink preservative free and  cleaning the lids with a good lid hygiene foam like ocusoft or cliradex.  So for dry eye 3 things are still crucial:  cleaning, heating and lubricating.  I have also used all the prescription medications available for dry eye over the past 25 years.  Since I have become more in tune with the natural approach to dry eyes I find I prescribe medication very rarely now.
