DRY EYE IMPACT ON QUALITY OF LIFE

With over 30 years in treating dry eye disease, Dr. Edward H. Jaccoma, MD, eyeThera’s Chief Medical Officer, hears daily complaints about how this disease can impair your vision:

    • “I can’t read like I used to.”
    • “Computers bother my eyes and make me blurry.”
    • “I can’t drive with the defroster (or air conditioning) on because my eyes tear up and I can’t see.”
    • “I can’t wear my contact lenses any more and my vision is never as good in glasses.”
    • “I can’t play sports anymore because my eyes tear and burn.”

Fortunately, these complaints are reduced when dry eye disease is successfully treated. Numerous studies back these observations up as “functional vision” has been rigorously demonstrated to be reduced in dry eye – and to improve when dry eye is treated. Quality of life can be restored.

Not all dry eye care providers are the same. At eyeThera, we work to improve dry eye care so sufferers can see better and live their lives to the fullest!
