Default Chronic dry eyes

For many who suffer from chronic dry eyes, medications and eyedrops aren’t enough – or may not work at all if they don’t treat the underlying problem. There are a handful of potential reasons for this condition, and simple reconstructive surgery procedures are a concrete option for individuals who prefer a safe, effective, and permanent solution. Common causes of chronic dry eyes include:
• Entropion, an inward turning of the lower eyelid causing it to irritate the eye
• Problems in the tear drainage system
• Inadequate or abnormal tear production
• Paralysis of the facial muscles (due to injury, stroke, or unknown causes), leading to a reduced capacity to blink and close the eye

All of these conditions can be treated surgically when medication therapy is not an option or not successful. Additionally, these procedures are often covered my insurance.

conditions that may cause dry eyes are:

The natural aging process, especially menopause.
Side effects of certain drugs such as antihistamines and birth control pills.
Diseases that affect the ability to make tears, such as Sjogren's syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, and collagen vascular diseases.
Structural problems with the eye lids that don't allow them to close properly.
