What is the treatment for severe case of dry eye when the cornea is inflamed too? My husband suffers from dry eye and only thing that his doctor prescribed him are eye drops for which I personally believe are not enough. I haven’t seen any improvement so far.

As far as I know for more severe cases of dry eye, in which the cornea is inflamed, anti-inflammatory agents are sometimes prescribed. Topical steroids in eye drops, that I guess he is using it, are safe for short-term use, to combat inflammation, but can cause side-effects when used for a long time. For some forms of dry eye, tiny plugs can keep tears on the eye’s surface by slowing the rate of drainage from the eye and this procedure is called punctal occlusion.
