Dry Eye Syndrome is one of the most prevalent eye problems we treat at our Fort Collins Harmony Eyecare Center.
The burning and stinging of dry eyes can become so severe in our climate that it can endanger your life when driving.
Through state-of-the-art treatment methods, we have made it our mission to rejuvenate the cellular functions that causes dry eye syndrome. Treatment is through different modalities, including prescription medications and nutritional supplements. In some cases, occlusion of the tear drainage ducts can give you added relief.
