Artificial Tear Advice

Lubricating eye drops play an important role for many of us.  Our natural tears protect and lubricate the surface of the eye and often the amount and quality of those tears is just not getting the job done.

Our two favorite brands are Refresh and Systane and can be used with or without contact lenses.

Within those brands, Refresh Optive Advanced and Systane Balance best address the oily component of the tears.  Refresh Tears and Systane Ultra are especially good with contact lenses.

Contact Lenses with Colors

In our experience, contact lenses that change eye color have not been as comfortable as clear lenses, by quite a wide margin. That is changing with the latest lenses. If you are interested, please check out the manufacturer's website and get in touch with us to see if this lens would be appropriate for you. We have samples in the office.
