Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/28/2017 -- Dry eyes are currently one of the most common reasons for visiting an optometrist. At Bob Yip, OD & Associates Eye Care, many effective treatments for dry eye are offered. Established over 18 years ago in Orlando, this popular optometry practice proudly serves University of South Florida (USF), University of Central Florida (UCF), and other local colleges; student discounts are offered. Dr. Yip specializes in staying on the cutting-edge of eye care, and every individual who suffers from irritated dry eyes is invited to visit and receive progressive, soothing treatment.

More than 24 million Americans complain of itching, redness, burning, constant blinking, and a sensation of having grit under their eyelids. These are the most typical symptoms of dry eye syndrome. A variety of causes is to blame, and patients seeking relief need a complete eye exam for a precise, personalized diagnosis. Once the culprit of a patient's dry eyes is identified, Dr. Yip will prescribe the most helpful treatment.

EyePromise EZ Tears are a promising new treatment for dry eye, now available from Bob Yip, OD & Associates. Tears lubricate the normal eye, which helps to provide clear, comfortable, and healthy vision. Dry eye results when the quantity or quality of tears is insufficient, and nutrition plays a significant role in a person's ocular health. With nine all-natural, essential ingredients to enhance tear manufacture and composition, EyePromise EZ Tears target the root of dry eye syndrome. Studies demonstrate that the effects of these supplements are rapid, often alleviating or improving dry eye symptoms within one week.

Dr. Yip may recommend a number of different medical treatments and strategies for dry eye, depending upon a patient's specific condition. Drugs include lubricating eye drops, gels, or pills to stimulate natural tear production. Antibiotics or anti-inflammatory medicines may be an alternate option. Eye inserts that release lubrication are often prescribed for more severe cases of dry eye. When necessary, Dr. Yip also performs an in-house procedure to implant punctal plugs. Typically made of silicone, punctal plugs seal tear ducts to block drainage, thereby enabling tears to disperse more efficiently across the eye's surface. At Bob Yip, OD & Associates, the results of each patient's comprehensive eye exam will be used to determine the best dry eye therapy.

Dry eye is not dangerous, yet it can make the simplest daily activities into an uncomfortable challenge. Driving, reading, and viewing a computer or TV may lead to painful symptoms. With so many treatments available, there is no reason to suffer! Visit Dr. Yip in for a complete evaluation and expert dry eye treatment.
