Dry Eye Treatment

Dry Eye Specialists at Empire Optometry in Santa Rosa

At Empire Optometry in Santa Rosa, we recognize that dry eye syndrome can significantly impact your daily life, causing discomfort and potentially affecting your vision. Our new office can see patients for Dry Eye treatment, and we are dedicated to utilizing the latest advancements in eye care to alleviate symptoms and improve your eye health.

Understanding Dry Eye Syndrome

Dry eye syndrome is a common condition that occurs when your tears are unable to provide adequate lubrication for your eyes. This can be due to insufficient tear production or poor tear quality. Our North Bay climate can make things worth it with extremes in temperatures and dry spells that can kick up dust and allergens. Symptoms may include a stinging or burning sensation, scratchiness, sensitivity to light, and blurred vision. In some cases, dry eyes can also lead to more serious eye conditions if left untreated.

What to Expect During Your Comprehensive Dry Eye Assessment?

Our approach to treating dry eye begins with a comprehensive assessment to determine the underlying cause of your symptoms. During your visit, we will conduct a series of evaluations, including:


  • Tear Quality Analysis: We assess the composition of your tears to identify issues with tear quality that may be contributing to dry eye syndrome.

  • Tear Production Test: Our optometrists measure the volume of your tear production to determine if tear quantity is a factor in your dry eye condition.

  • Ocular Surface Examination: We examine the surface of your eyes for signs of dryness, inflammation, or damage that could be causing or exacerbating your symptoms.

Personalized Dry Eye Treatment Plans

Based on the results of your assessment, we will develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to address your specific needs.


Dye Eye Treatment options may include:

  • Artificial Tears: For mild cases of dry eye, over-the-counter artificial tears can provide relief by supplementing your natural tear production.

  • Prescription Eye Drops: We may prescribe eye drops that help increase tear production or reduce inflammation associated with dry eye syndrome.

  • Punctal Plugs: In some cases, tiny devices called punctal plugs can be inserted into the tear ducts to prevent tear drainage, helping to maintain moisture on the eye's surface.

  • Lifestyle Adjustments: We provide guidance on lifestyle changes that can help manage dry eye symptoms, such as avoiding dry environments, taking breaks during screen time, and staying hydrated.
