DRY EYE DISEASE
Dry eye disease occurs when your eye is not adequately lubricated by your tears. This lack of lubrication can make your eyes feel uncomfortable and impair your vision.
Common symptoms include an eye that stings, burns, or feels scratchy, red eyes, blurry vision, and a sensitivity to light.
Dry eye disease affects millions of people each year.
Modern ophthalmology has made significant advances in the treatment of dry eye disease. These include procedures like the TearCare treatment and prescription drops. There are also a variety of steps many patients can take in their daily life to improve their condition.
At Thomas & Thomas Ophthalmology, Inc., we combine a wide range of modern treatments with extensive experience to develop a comprehensive plan for treating each patient's dry eye condition.
COVERAGE AND COST
Most exams related to dry eye disease are covered by medical insurance. This means that the exams are paid for once you have met any deductibles, co-pays, and co-insurance. Some procedures, like the TearCare treatment, are not covered by most insurances and have an out-of-pocket cost.
The insurance process can be stressful and difficult to navigate, and our practice is committed to helping you through it, whether that means providing you with an estimate prior to your exam or submitting and following through with claims on your behalf. Our goal is to be accessible and available to help you.
