Key Instruments to Enhance Dry Eye Treatment

Sept. 19, 2018

Technology to diagnose dry eye is rapidly advancing, and you can elevate care and build value with patients by customizing their treatment to individual conditions. Kambiz Silani, OD, demonstrates how he employs cutting-edge technology to enhance the clinical and business aspects of his dry-eye practice.

SCREEN PATIENTS. Do a medical history to see which dry eye treatments patients are good candidates for. The use of certain skin medications or excessive sun exposure may rule out a patient from one treatment and indicate an alternative.

CREATE DRY EYE KIT. To provide comprehensive care and full value, present patients with a dry eye kit, which may include an Omega 3 supplement, eyelid cleansers and eye drops.

CUSTOMIZE TREATMENT. Use multiple complementary treatments, individualized to each patient’s unique needs.
