This clear, accessible book combines detailed medical information with expert treatment advice for the estimated twenty million Americans who suffer from dry eye syndrome. Dr. Steven L. Maskin, an ophthalmologist who has been caring for dry eye patients for more than fifteen years, explains exactly what the syndrome is, why it occurs, and how it can best be managed and treated. He dispels the misunderstandings that surround dry eye syndrome and presents an easy-to-understand guide that may be read cover-to-cover or dipped into for specific topics of interest. Dr. Maskin begins with an overview of dry eye syndrome, then explains the myriad ways it can develop (allergies, aging, contact-lens use, LASIK surgery, diabetes, and various other diseases). He discusses how it can be successfully diagnosed and treated, offers guidelines for choosing a doctor and appropriate medications, and describes useful home remedies. In a concise final chapter, the doctor provides welcome answers to frequently asked questions. For patients who want to understand their disease and to participate actively in its management, this book is an essential reference.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"There are not many resources geared to consumers on this topic, so Maskin's practical and informative book is timely and highly recommended for public and consumer health libraries."--Library Journal
"Relatively little information is available for the dry eye patient. In an effort to fill this void, Steven L. Maskin . . . has written this book aimed at answering many of the questions posed by dry eye sufferers. . . . [It is] important [for] its use as a resource for educating dry eye patients who would like to learn more about their condition. It is well written and definitely a worthwhile read."--William D. Townsend, Optometry and Vision Science
Selected as a 2008 AAUP University Press Book for Public and Secondary School Libraries

"Dr. Maskin describes in straightforward language the causes of, symptoms of, and treatment for dry eye syndrome. He presents an enormous amount of information clearly and succinctly."--Vivian E. Thomson, University of Virginia


"Until now there has been no lay book devoted solely to unlocking the complexity of [dry eye syndrome] and to providing useful guidance for dry eye sufferers."--Scheffer C. G. Tseng, M.D., Ph.D., from the Foreword

Sykes, Founder and Chairman Emeritus, Sykes Enterprises Incorporated


"One thing that is essential to my success as a professional tennis player is good, clear vision.
