Dr. Coyne's #1 tip for managing dry eye


Alissa M. Coyne, OD, FAAO, FASOS, gives her number 1 tip for managing dry eye.

Alissa M. Coyne, OD, FAAO, FASOS, assistant professor at Pennsylvania College of Optometry, shares her number one tip for the management of dry eye.

This transcript has been lightly edited for clarity:

My number one tip for managing dry eye is to consider the fact that it is multifactorial, and with that, looking at every single one of those factors.

When treating dry eye, of course there's always that baseline management, but it's not unusual to have to move on to the immunomodulators aspect.

I always find that it's difficult for patients to either be adherent or compliant in a lot of these situations, and really stressing that this is going to be a chronic condition and their compliance — or adherence — to the management plan that you came up with together is really going to be imperative to improving their syndrome.
