the latest in nutrition for dry eyes!!
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.
