Dry eye syndrome or keratoconjunctivitis sicca is an ophthalmic condition that affects millions of people. The degree of severity varies from person to person, and the causes may stem from different factors.
The eyes usually become dry, red, and may become inflamed. People usually report feeling discomfort and sensitivity to light. Some people are forced to live with this condition for many years without any real improvement.
Conventional treatments for dry eyes may include over the counter lubricating eye drops, or immunosuppressive prescription medication such as Restasis for moderate to severe dry eye conditions.
Acupuncture is a safe and effective treatment that has shown good results for people with dry eyes. Acupuncture not only helps alleviate the symptoms of dry eyes, but will also address the root cause of it. There is strong evidence that acupuncture is more effective than artificial tears for treating dry eye syndrome.
