Dry Eye Treatment Near You


Your tears comfort your eyes in many ways. Dr. Alan Schlussel is the founding director of The Dry Eye Treatment Center of New York and New Jersey. Dry eye strikes when your eyes can’t produce enough tears for lubrication or the moisture in your tears evaporates too quickly. Common symptoms include a feeling of grittiness in your eyes, a sensation of something in your eye or burning, eye fatigue, eye pain, and excessive tearing.

Dr. Schlussel is extremely professional and knowledgeable. He was very thorough and explained everything in detail so we understood exactly what was wrong with my mother’s eyes. We made another appointment right away. We finally have hope that my mothers eye problems will improve. I would definitely recommend Dr. Schlussel! He’s an amazing doctor.
