Q&A Dr. Ellison Answers Your Eyecare Questions

Q: Do you have any recommendations for people to help them avoid Dry Eye issues?

Good eye hygiene, “eyegiene” if you will excuse the pun, can go a long way to help to avoid dry eyes.

We should all be using a good quality artificial tear at least every morning and night in the same way that you brush your teeth or apply moisturizer to your skin twice daily.

Cleansing the lids daily with gentle lid cleansers can prevent inflammation and keep the oil glands in the lids flowing. Omega 3 supplements can also help.

Taking frequent breaks from computers and other near tasks along with use of humidifiers at home and work can also go a long way to preventing dry eye issues. Big “squeezy” blinks when taking those frequent breaks can also be helpful especially when artificial tears are not nearby.

Are Your Eyes Overworked?

HYLO™ – long-lasting dry eye relief!

hylo_lubricating _drops

When you experience symptoms of dry eye, or after eye surgery or an eye injury your doctor may recommend using eye drops (artificial tears).

How does HYLO™ work?

HYLO™ eye drops contain the sodium salt of hyaluronic acid, a substance found naturally in the eye and other parts of the body. Due to its special physical property, HYLO™ forms a regular, stable, long lasting lubricating film on the eye surface. This film is not easily rinsed off and does not cause blurred vision. HYLO™ provides long-lasting moisture to the surface of the eye to efficaciously support the natural process of healing wear.
