Because part of the underlying problem, especially in the early stages, is the collection of fluid, your doctor may recommend treatments to help the extra water evaporate, such as exposure to warm, dry air (vents in a car, blow dryer, etc.).

Your doctor may also prescribe ointments or drops or bandage contact lenses. In very advanced cases, your doctor may recommend a corneal transplant or other surgical procedure.
