We Can Help Relieve Your Frustrating Dry Eye Symptoms. Visit Our Local Dry Eye Specialists in Butler & Cranberry Township.
Dry eye is a common and often frustrating condition. Millions of Americans suffer from dry eye, whether it is ongoing chronic dry eye or intermittent sporadic dry eye. Regardless of the cause of your case of dry eye, we can help you mitigate its symptoms and improve your overall quality of life.
Having access to accurate information about the state of your eye health, and on the impacts dry eye is having on your eyes, allows us to make informed decisions regarding treating and managing it.
We utilize state of the art technologies, including the InflammaDry® rapid in-office test, to guide our treatments.
Our dry eye treatments are based on each patient and individualized to ensure the best chances of success. These treatments may include the use of unconventional therapies, such as scleral contact lenses or Prokera® (a therapeutic lens that uses amniotic membranes to promote healing on the eye’s surface).
Our experienced Optometrists (Dr. Dittman in Butler and Dr. Nock in Cranberry Township) have extensive training on traditional and contemporary dry eye treatments. Request an appointment to see Dr. Dittman or Dr. Nock about your dry eye symptoms.
More Information About Our Dry Eye Treatments
Dry eye is a complex condition. Because of this complexity, it is impossible to treat each patient with a generalized diagnosis. Each treatment regimen we create is customized for the needs of the patient, ensuring the best chance of long-term relief.
We provide a holistic treatment program that addresses your risk factors, including environment, diet, and lifestyle.
We always begin our treatments with tried and true processes, such as using artificial lubrication or medications like Restasis. These treatments include:
Scleral contact lenses, which fit over the eye and rest on the sclera (the white part of the eye), provides lubrication by creating a pocket between the itself and the eye that is filled with fluid.
Conversely, the amniotic membrane inside the Prokera® lens promotes healing and reduces inflammation.
