Treatments for Severe Dry Eyes

 Treatments for Severe Dry Eyes

When eye drops no longer works, what do I do?

We hear this very common.  I have dry eyes, and eye drops no longer work.  My eye doctors simply give me more drops to use, including an expensive prescription drop that stings when I put it in my eyes.  My dry eyes are getting worse, they are red, my eye lids are puffy, red, irritated,  and sometimes tear even run down my cheek.   Statistics indicate 20 % of patients who go to eye doctors fail to get a proper resolution to their dry eye problems.  
If this sounds like you, read on:  Take on this challenge on your own, get your life back on track. 
Here are some options for you to consider: 
·         TheraLife Eye Capsules – to restore normal tear function naturally through mito-activation.  Relief dry eyes with your own tears all day long.  See more below.
·         Steroid eyedrops can be used short term to reduce inflammation. Limit use to no more than two weeks; longer use can lead to serious side effects such as glaucoma and cataracts, potentially liver and kidney damages
·         Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acid supplements have been shown in some studies to help dry-eye symptoms, we recommend 4000mg/day.
·         Tear duct plugs, or punctal occlusion, is an in-office procedure during which temporary or permanent plugs made from collagen or silicon are inserted into the tear ducts in the eye’s inner corner to block tears from draining.  Be aware that 50% of punctal plugs fall out within the first year.  People with punctal plugs are also more likely to have eye infections because bacteria and contaminants have no place to go. 
·         Autologous serum tears use your blood serum to create eyedrops. These drops contain compounds found in natural tears that may help heal the eye’s surface. People with a very severe dry eye disease such as sjogren's syndrome tend to use this approach.  
·         Surgery can correct eyelid abnormalities or reduce the surface area of the eye to help reduce tear evaporation.  Eye lid surgeries do often lead to more dry eye symptoms due to scaring - which may cut of blood supply to the eyes for dry eye relief.  

If you’re experiencing symptoms of dry eye, seek out a definitive diagnosis, which is crucial for proper treatment.

How to relief Dry Eyes at Night


For those with chronic dry eyes, this is probably a familiar story.  So what is the best dry eye treatment for night time relief?

Dry Eyes at Night


This happens most often for people who already have dry eyes.  The symptoms are:

1.  Eyes Hurt,

You get up several times during the night to put drops in your eyes.  Sometimes you have to ply your eyes open because your eye lids are stuck to your eye balls.

2. Gel Drops at night

Your eye doctor(s) recommend you use this thick gel drops to prevent dryness.  Next morning, crust build up on your eye lashes, and your eyes may still be dry.

3. Crusty Eyes in the morning

This is a typical sign of Blepharitis - inflammation of the eye lids.  Best treatment is eye lid cleansing, twice a day.  If you are using gel drops, this crusty build up is even more severe.

Why Dry Eyes at Night?  

There are many reasons for dry eyes at night:
1. Reduced tear production when you sleep.
Your whole body metabolism slows down resulting in insufficient blood flow and delivering nutrients to your eyes.  

2. Eye lids partially open
Very common.  Sometimes your eye lids maybe partially open, and you won't know it.  Resulting in tear evaporation.  For this, you can wear a goggle at night.  Some goggles have a moisture chamber to provide moisture close to your eyes. 

3. Fan or Moving Air in the bedroom
Wind and moving air tend to dry out eyes,  Turn off ceiling fans will help a great deal.

How to test for dry eyes syndrome?



How do eye doctors test you for dry eye syndrome?


You have been told by your eye doctor(s) you have dry eyes.  Yet you don't know how this is determined.  Lack of this information make targeting your recovery very difficult.

There are many reasons why you have dry eyes.  Most common cause of dry eye is lack of tears.  However, other factors, such as Blepharitis ( inflammation of eye lids) and Meibomian Gland Dysfunction ( unable to deliver lubricants to thicken your tears) are major factors as well.  

In fact Blepharitis and Meibomian Gland Dysfunction are the causes of at least 70% of the severe chronic dry eyes coming to TheraLife.  

Typical dry eye tests


1. Dry eye symptoms (Ocular Surface Disease Index questionnaire) 

2. tear break-up time - measures how long it takes tear to disperse, a sign of "Evaporative Dry Eyes" , not enough lubricants to thicken tears

3. Schirmer test - measure tear volume. A think tread inserted to your lower eye lid and measure how much tear is produced within 10 minutes.  Normal should be around 15-20 mm. 

4. ocular surface staining - observing dry patches on your cornea. 

5.  Examine sticky crusty build up for Blepharitis - which should include microscopic examination of eye lashes for bacteria and mites

6. Expressing meibomian glands - and tell you what comes out.  Description should be clear, cloudy, tooth paste or nothing comes. 

7. Tear Osmolarity Test - (TearLab- San Diego, CA) - this equipment may not be available through your eye doctor's office.  In that case, Tear Breakup Test is essential.

Learn what to ask your doctor beforehand will help you get the proper tests performed, and understand the best treatment regiment for faster recovery.




 For blepharitis look to TheraLife for help.  Recover quickly with the best eye lid cleanser on the market.  No irritations.  Fight inflammation and restore your own tears.  No more drops, no oitment,   All natural, 100% guaranteed.

New Research- Association of Macular Degeneration and Heart Disease


Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) and Heart Disease


Did your eye doctor diagnosed you with maculardegeneration ( AMD) and showed you pictures of your eye balls.  There are little white dots showing up called drusen bodies within  your eye ball which are blocking your central vision. 

Ever wondered if your high cholesterol levels and heart health are related to macular degeneration?  The answer is YES.  These drusen bodies are actually lipid deposits from your blood.  Want to prevent vision loss from macular degeneration- take care of your cholesterol and heart.
  

What are drusen bopdies?

Drusen are yellow deposits under the retina. Drusen are made up of lipids, a fatty protein. They are an early sign of developing macular degeneration (AMD). 

New research indicates a strong correlation of macular degeneration with coronary artery diseases (CAD) and hypertension.  .

Association of Macular Degeneration with Heart Disease

This research study is performed a retrospective chart review of more than 13,000 patients at the Lexington Veterans Affairs Medical Center.  Patients diagnosed as having macular degeneration are subjects , and patients diagnosed with cataract and no macular degeneration served as controls. This study examined the prevalence of cardiovascular disease and associated risk factors in both groups u
Results indicate a strong correlation between macular degeneration and cardiovascular diseases.  Not surprising since drusen bodies being lipids in nature are also depositing in arteries. 

This blog is a brief summary of an article published in South Med J. 2015;108(8):502-506.

How to keep your eyes healthy and prevent dry eyes!

How to keep your eyes healthy and Prevent Dry Eyes

Regular Eye Examination is Important. 

An eye examination that includes pupil dilation can detect many common disease conditions such as glaucoma, diabetes, and macular degeneration in their early stages.  Eye is the window to your soul - very true.

Wear Sunglasses to Protect from UV Damage and wind for dry eyes. 

Ultra violet rays from the sun can be damaging to your eyes as well as your skin.  Be sure to select sunglasses that block out 99 to 100 percent of both the UV-A and UV-B radiation.  If you have dry eyes, be sure to select the wrap around sunglasses to shield away the wind which can make your dry eye symptoms worse.  

Rest your eyes


If you spend a lot of time at the computer, cell phone, watching TV, it's important to rest your eyes to prevent eye strain. Typical eye problems include red, irritated eyes, blurry vision, headaches, and fatigue.  We even have a name for this problem called "Computer Vision Syndrome"  Try the 20-20-20 rule: Every 20 minutes, look away about 20 feet in front of you for 20 seconds. 

Clean your contact lenses

Always wash your hands thoroughly before putting in or taking out your contact lenses. Hand lotion, dirt can cause eye infections, and cause your contact lenses not to wet properly. Make sure to disinfect contact lenses as instructed and replace them as directed.

Stop Smoking

Cigarette smoke is known to affect eye health in addition to being bad for your body. Research has linked smoking to an increased risk of developing dry eyes, macular degeneration, cataracts and optic nerve damage, all of which can lead to blindness.

Slim Down- Stay Healthy


You have probably heard this many times, besides the social stigma, being overweight or obese increases your risk of developing diabetes, heart disease and other systemic conditions, which can lead to vision loss ( diabetic retinopathy) and glaucoma. 

Family History of eye diseases

It’s important to know if anyone in your family has been diagnosed with an eye disease or condition since many of these eye disorders are hereditary.  Conditions such as chronic dry eyes, Blepharitis, glaucoma, Sjogren's syndrome and more.

What does Make Up do to Contact Lens and Dry Eyes


Make Up Impact on Contact Lenses and Dry Eyes


Application of mascara to eye lashes has been a concern for contact lens wearers for years.1  This blog describes how mascara affects contact lenses, your eye balls and what precautions to take to avoid damages to your eye health which often results in chronic dry eyes.  


How fast does mascara get onto your eye balls?


Recent research indicates oarticles from masacara reaches the precorneal tear film within 30 minutes of application.2 These particles may also adhere to the corneal epithelium, the conjunctiva, and other ocular surface regions and may result in vision related problems, contact dermatitis, and loss of eye lashes puffy and swollen eye lashes.  This is particularly important in people with Blepharitis  


How does mascara affect your contact lenses?

New research performed in laboratories indicates that mascara deposits on the surface of contact lens materials and affects the lens wettability. 

Clean and new contact lenses were evaluated upon exposure to the following contaminants-

- hand creams
- eye make up removers
- mascara

Measurements were taken before and after the experiments.  The dirty contact lenses under went a 6- hour cleaning cycle using Clear Care.

Results indicate mascara resulted the most damage to pixel brightness ( transparency of the contact lenses) and left the most visible deposits on the lenses.  In addition, non-waterproof mascara resulted in the a lot of damage to transparency, and watery proof mascara particles stayed on the lenses even after 6-hour cleaning.  

Overall, hand creams and eye make up removers had minimum impact on contact lenses- the cleaning system was able to restore the lens condition.  

For people with high propensity of Blepharitis - inflammation of the eye lids,  wearing mascara may bring on the onset of this chronic eye condition resulting in chronic dry eyes.

Blepharitis and Eye Make Up- Do's and Don'ts

Blepharitis and Eye Make-up Do’s and Don’ts


Wearing make-up to enhance beauty dates back to ancient times.  Many of the eye make up consisted of  of toxic mixtures such as copper, belladonna, nitric acid, lead ore, mercury, bird droppings and even burnt matchsticks.   Cosmetics have come a long way since then, but without proper use, they can still greatly affect the eyes and tear film negatively, especially when you have a dry eye condition called BLEPHARITIS.

Blepharitis is an inflammatory eye condition that results in sticky crusty build up on eye lashes.  It is a chronic eye condition that results in inflammation, puffy, red and soar eye lids and dry eyes.  Because blepharitis involve eye lids and eye lashes, eye make up becomes intolerable.  


We highly recommend people with Blepharitis do not wear any make up until they totally recover.  Yes, you can totally recover and start wearing some eye make up once you recover.  Talk to Theralife and learn how.  


A little education can go a long way to forming good habits to keep eyes healthy.

Where to apply 
Eyeliner should never be placed directly on the lid margin as it covers meibomian gland openings which can lead to unhealthy blockages - called meibomian gland dysfunction

What to avoid 

Waterproof eye make-up is difficult to remove. According to a recent Twitter survey approximately 1/3 of women don’t always remove their make-up before bed. Removal often requires the use of harsh cleansers that strip naturally occurring oils from the skin resulting in red, irritated puffy eye lids. One natural option is to use organic coconut oil and it doesn’t contain harsh preservatives.

Avoid powder and glitter-based eye shadows, foundations and blush, and recommend cream-based make-up instead. Powder and glitter can easily become incorporated into the tear film on your eye balls causing irritation.

When to replace
Replace make-up often. We recommend buying new products every 3 months, particularly mascara and eyeliner. Make-up should be immediately discarded after an eye infection and sharing is never a good idea - these are especially important tips for young patients who are more likely to borrow from friends.

Batting an eyelash
Darker, fuller, longer eyelashes are touted in most mascara commercials and perceived key to beautiful looking eyes. Other althernative methods such as permanent lid tattoos, eyelash dyes or false lashes which are applied using adhesive backing or glue can cause allergy, and damage to the meibomian glands and lid tissue, increasing the risk for long-term dry eye disease. Never never do these eye lash enhancements if you have blepharitis.

New Research - Autologous Serum Drop as Sjogren's Treatment


Autologus serum drops are beneficial as treatment for Sjogren's Dry Eyes.  

New research indicate autologous serum drops can provide benefits for people with Sjogren's dry eyes.  Autologus serum drops are prepared from one's own blood by a licensed compounding pharmacist.  

Sj√∂gren’s Syndrome is an autoimmune disease affecting moisture producing secretory glands with severe signs of dry eye and dry mouth. Treatment often involves the use of potent anti-inflammatory such as Plaquenil, Methotrexate, Prednisone and artificial tear drops.  It is also well known that frequent use of artifical eye drops make eyes drier- washing away all the natural lubricants eyes produce.  TheraLife Eye help revive and restore tear secretion glands to help produce your own natural tears for dry eye relief.  See section below.  

In a research study, autologous serum drops have shown to be effective in the management of Sjogren's dry eyes because it contain vitamins, growth factors and other components similar to natural tears. The purpose of this research study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of AS eye drops combined with punctal plugs in patients with Sjogren's related dry eye. 
  
This was a retrospective study of a total of 56 eyes of 28 patients diagnosed with primary or secondary Sjogren's Syndrome with symptoms of dry eye and a history of treatment with Autologous Serum eye drops. Schirmer test value ( measure tear volume), tear breakup time (TBUT)- measure tear viscosity- thickness, and fluorescein and Rose Bengal  staining scores at baseline, 3 months, 6 months, 1 year, and >1 year after treatment were evaluated.   

Conclusion - long-term application of AS eye drops was found to be an effective and safe treatment for SS dry eye.

The addition of ppunctal plugs in combination with Autologous  eye drops was found to have an additive effect on SJogren's dry eye. Sjogren's require aggressive therapy in order to prevent ocular surgace damage.
