When we asked you, the consumer, what dry eye treatment products you were using currently, or were planning to use in 2019, we received more than 600 responses with over 30 different ways that you are managing your dry eye. They run the gamut from eye drops, hypochlorous acid eyelid cleanser, punctal plugs, omega-3 fatty acids, and artificial tears to warm compresses, diet, hydration, and other natural remedies for dry eye. And that’s just to name a few.
While there is no universal product (how we all wish it were so) that serves every conceivable need for every dry eye sufferer on the planet—and, to be sure, the right product often depends on the symptoms at hand—the goal is frequently the same: living a normal and pain-free life that is unencumbered by our dry eyes.
Below we will be going over the 27 most used products for dry eye sufferers that were surveyed (all 600+ of you), and then we go over our 19 favorite dry eye treatment products and ways to treat dry eye naturally IN ORDER that we prescribe for our patients. We emphasize in order, as we recommend starting with the first one until it becomes habit before moving on to the second one!
