Dry eye is a disease that can have significant impact on visual function. Impaired vision can result in individuals realizing just how important their eyesight is to them. The importance of visual health emphasizes the necessity of ophthalmology from other medical procedures.*
Dry eye can cause burning, blurring of vision and keep individuals at a disadvantage for normal, everyday tasks such as reading or driving. Alternative therapies, such as eye drops, can provide substantial relief for patients, but ophthalmology acupuncture still stands as having potential to help those who continue to suffer from dry eye.*
