OTC Lubricant Drops


Refresh, Systane, Genteal and Theratears are all over the counter lubricant drops.  They provide some relief from dry eye symptoms but may require use several times a day.

They are also available in a "Gel" form which provides relief for a longer period, but cn also be used more than once per day.  The gel may blur your vision a little for a few moments.

If needed, "Ointment" forms are also available.  They provide much longer relief of symptoms but blu vision significantly so are only used at bedtime.


If even more relief is desired punctal plugs or a prescription medication will be required.
