Dry Eye Most Effective if Treated Early

Why wait until a disease is in its final stages before treating it? Would we wait until a patient had lost significant visual function before treating them? Why wait until a patient is severely symptomatic and in pain before treating their dry eye. I would argue that we should not. The most important part of seeking treatment and receiving treatment for dry eye is patient education. This disease process is chronic and progressive. It did not start over night and cannot be cured overnight. I would argue it cannot be ‘cured’ but can merely be managed, like dandruff. Talk to your doctor about options you have for treating your dry eye.
