Our doctors manage a variety of eye diseases including dry eyes. Chronic and severe dry eye is a painful condition that can lead to contact lens intolerance, blurry vision, and even loss of sight due to scarring. We are pleased to offer a supplement that can help, Bio Tears.
This nutraceutical systemically improves inadequacies in the tear film, thus decreasing the symptoms of dry eyes. The ingredients in Bio Tears support the structure and function of lubricants in affected areas of the body such as mucous membranes of the mouth and eyes as well as membranes that cover our joints.
The surface of the eyes is lubricated by a tear film composed of three layers: a mucous layer, watery layer, and outer fatty layer to slow the evaporation of the tears from the ocular surface. Anything that alters these layers, causes dry eye disease. Unless the composition of the tear film can be restored, topical lubricating drops will only provide temporary relief.
The causes of dry eyes are varied but include the following: normal aging of the tear glands, extended use of contact lenses, the environment and its pollutants, prescription drugs, refractive surgery, nutritional deficiencies, auto-immune disorders, and inflammatory disease of the eyelids.
After extensive time and consideration, Dr. Stennis concluded that Biosyntrx’s, Bio Tears is a product she felt could help her patients and decided to offer it in the office at a substantial discount. This product has a balanced blend of Omega 3 fish oil, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory ingredients found to be very helpful to dry eyes. Fish oil has also been shown to have possible benefits throughout the body.
