Blacksburg Dry Eye Treatments

 

Blacksburg Eye Associates has some of the most cutting-edge and advanced technologies to quickly and effectively test for dry eye syndrome.

Among our treatments for dry eye syndrome, the most typical treatments start with medicated eye drops, anti-inflammatory drops, or a heated compress. Occasionally, tiny devices called punctal plugs are inserted into the eye’s tear duct to prevent moisture from draining out of the eye. These plugs increase the moisture level for long-term relief.

Let Dr. John Dovie and the talented, experienced staff help get you started on the path to real long-term relief from dry eye.

Check out our practice’s dry eye treatments below.
