We now have LACRISERT® available in the office for the treatment of dry eye syndrome. So far the results have been promising. LACRISERT® is inserted inside your lower lid once or twice a day. Lacrisert slowly releases supplemental tears to your eyes throughout the day.
Most patients have found that using the LACRISERT® once a day provides sufficient relief for most of the workday. When the LACRISERT® has almost completely dissolved it tends to not stay trapped inside the lower lid, causing intermittent blurred vision. A drop of artificial tears flushes out the last remnant restoring vision.
Please feel free to call the office to see if LACRISERT® may be an option for your dry eyes.
