Why choose Dry Eye Care Texas?
Because dry eye care is ALL we do.

Dry Eye is a complex, multi factorial disease which can require extensive time for proper diagnosis and formulating customized treatment plans.

Because we are currently the only clinic in Austin that focuses solely on dry eye management. we can apply all of our efforts in helping you get relief from your dry eye symptoms by using advanced diagnostic testing and imaging to determine the root causes of your dry eye. We then offer evidence-based home and in office treatments to address each cause directly.

Though many patients use artificial tears to provide temporary relief, unfortunately the underlying disease process can continue to progress.

At Dry Eye Care Texas, we are focused and motivated to not only help you find relief from your symptoms but also slow down the progression rate of your dry eye disease.

If you've had an evaluation at our office before then you've most likely seen this tool: a handheld esthesiometer!
• As Dry Eye Disease progresses, it often compromises the health of the corneal nerves causing a reduction in nerve sensitivity
• Loss of sensitivity allows underlying corneal damage to progress while you may not have symptoms of the damage, thus silently devastating your corneal health
• In extreme cases, the scar tissue can lead to significant reduction in the quality of vision and/or vision loss
Corneal sensitivity is checked on all our patients to assess the integrity of the corneal nerves. If reduced sensitivity is noted, our doctors can prescribe treatments to improve the health of the corneal nerves!
