IMPROVE YOUR VISION, REDUCE WRINKLES AND REDNESS, AND RESTORE OVERALL EYE HEALTH
It can happen any time. Your eyes feel tired. You rub them. You look at yourself in the mirror and see lines, wrinkles, bags, redness that were never there before. Dry eye often starts as a minor irritation but can develop into a deeper problem affecting your vision and appearance.
Approximately 77 million Americans suffer from dry eye (also known as
dysfunctional tear syndrome). And traditional solutions, such as eyedrops and eyelid surgery, may actually make the problem worse.
The Dry Eye Remedy is the first book to give dry eye sufferers simple and
practical ways to restore eye health and appearance without surgery. Robert Latkany, M.D., offers:
• an innovative Home Eye Spa program with a soothing eye-cleansing massage
• easy environmental and lifestyle changes to help you look and feel better
• cutting-edge research on which medications and procedures may help and which to avoid.
The Dry Eye Remedy is an essential tool to ensure there is “not a dry eye in the house.”
“From causes and diagnosis to treatment options, this book is a great resource not only for Sjögren's Syndrome patients but anyone suffering from dry eye.”
—Steven Taylor, Chief Executive Officer, Sjögren's Syndrome Foundation
“Dry eye is a real disease, with increasing prevalence and long-term effects if not treated properly…. Dr. Latkany's book is easy to read [and] is written to educate the consumer."
—L. Jo Parrish, Vice President, Society for Women's Health Research
