Dry Eye Management
We’ve all been there. But for some, dry eyes can become a serious condition that can cause negative effects to eye health overall, and hinder quality of life.
You Don’t Have to Suffer!
Dry eye disease is a common condition that occurs when your tears aren’t able to provide adequate lubrication for your eyes. There are many reasons you might not produce an adequate amount of tears or poor quality tears. This tear instability leads to inflammation and damage of the eye’s surface.
Dry eyes can feel very uncomfortable. If you have dry eyes, the eyes may sting or burn. You may experience dry eyes in certain situations, such as on an airplane, in an air-conditioned room, while riding a bike or after looking at a computer screen for a few hours.
Treatments for dry eyes may make you more comfortable. These treatments can include lifestyle changes and eyedrops. You’ll likely need to take these measures indefinitely to control the symptoms of dry eyes.
Signs and symptoms, which usually affect both eyes, may include:
• A stinging, burning or scratchy sensation in your eyes
• Stringy mucus in or around your eyes
• Sensitivity to light
• Eye redness
• A sensation of having something in your eyes
• Difficulty wearing contact lenses
• Difficulty with nighttime driving
• Watery eyes, which is the body’s response to the irritation of dry eyes
• Blurred vision or eye fatigue
Dry eyes are more than just a seasonal problem, and can affect overall eye health and quality of life.
