I've personally visited 10+ doctors across Canada/USA/Hong Kong, virtually every single doctor have given me different opinions and treatment plans. One doctor even just send me home, and told me I will just live with chronic pain for the rest of my life. Other doctors have given me outdated treatment plans or sell me expensive products/services which do not help the underlying cause of the disease. I definitely recommend you to consult more than one doctor to get different opinions and treatment options.
Dr Richard Maharaj is a clinical adjunct faculty at the University of Waterloo, he is very knowledgable and up to date on the latest dry eye treatments and research. I definitely recommend a consult with Dr Richard Maharaj. I also find Dr Richard Maharaj prices to be quite reasonable, and often significantly cheaper than other clinics for services such as LipiFlow.
