What Can I Expect from Dry Eye Syndrome Treatments?
If you have dry eye syndrome, you may experience hazy vision, as well as red, scratchy or stinging eyes. You may also feel like your eyes are heavy and sore or you may develop light sensitivity. Numerous factors can impact the dryness of one’s eyes. Examples include menopause, mobile device use, underlying conditions (like Vitamin A deficiency), and certain prescription medications. The best approach for finding out if you have dry eyes is to have a comprehensive eye exam at Eye Specialists of Napa Valley. In addition to assessing your symptoms, our team will determine any underlying problems contributing to your dry eyes. Your complete eye exam will include measuring the quantity and makeup of the tears you generate as well as a close look at your eyelids, corneas, and conjunctiva. If we do conclude that you have dry eye syndrome, we will design an individualized treatment plan based on the degree of your case. Depending on the overall cause, we could suggest a medication change with the approval of your medical doctor, provide a prescription to reduce eyelid or corneal inflammation, determine medication for tear stimulation, or prescribe inserts for the eye that make your tears last longer.

"Dr Bosetti preformed Cataract surgery on both my eyes recently. I am a retired architect and my vision became cloudy to the point I had trouble driving at night because of the glare and was easily blinded by contrasting bright sunlight and deep shadow. Dr Bosetti diagnosed cataracts in both eyes and recommended lens transplants. He was thorough in testing, clearly answered all questions. The surgery was a overwhelming success. I highly recommend him . "- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Mar 22, 2019
