What Is Dry Eye?

Dry eye is a condition caused by a lack of sufficient tears to lubricate and nourish the eye. Dryness occurs when your eyes either do not produce enough tears or produce tears of poor quality.

Tears are essential for eye health, providing lubrication, fighting infection, and maintaining clear vision. Dry eye symptoms can range from having mild irritation to serious complications.

Comprehensive Dry Eye Treatment

What Causes Dry Eyes?

Dry eye is a multifactorial disease that can be caused by physiological and environmental factors. Some of the common causes include:

  • Certain medical conditions
  • Certain medications
  • Frequent contact lens wear
  • Refractive surgery (LASIK, PRK)
  • Eyelid disease
  • Frequent computer use
  • Dry climates and environments

What Are the Symptoms of Dry Eyes?

We are experienced in providing relief and long-term solutions for our patients who experience a wide range of dry eye symptoms. Some common signs and symptoms of dry eyes can include:

  • Grittiness or irritation
  • Redness
  • Stinging and burning sensations
  • Blurred vision
  • Sore or tired eyes
  • Watery eyes
  • Contact lens intolerance
  • Light sensitivity

What Does a Dry Eye Assessment Include?

A dry eye assessment can be scheduled today by you or may be recommended by your doctor after your comprehensive eye examination. After an initial evaluation, a more in-depth assessment will be scheduled afterwards that may include the following:

  • A dry eye questionnaire
  • Tear assessment and measurements
  • Digital imaging of your eye and eyelids
  • Eyelid gland expression

Managing & Treating Dry Eyes

Once your optometrist has determined the cause of your dry eyes, they will recommend or prescribe solutions tailored to your needs. 

Dry eye is a multifactorial disease where signs and symptoms can vary from person to person. Most treatment options we offer are minor and noninvasive. 

Our goal is not just to alleviate your dry eye symptoms but also to promote long-term eye health. Proper dry eye management can help you avoid further complications and maintain optimal eye health.

Artificial tears are over-the-counter eye drops designed to reduce dry eye symptoms by maintaining lubrication throughout the day.

Punctal plugs are tiny devices inserted into the eyelids’ drainage ducts to increase tear volume on the surface of the eye. By preventing the tears from draining, the plugs help keep the eyes healthy and lubricated. 

They are not noticeable once inserted, and most people do not experience any discomfort.

Prescription preservative-free eyedrops are used to treat inflammation associated with dry eye. These drops can help increase your eyes’ natural ability to produce tears, which may be reduced by inflammation.

Practicing habits such as taking frequent breaks from using the computer or making lifestyle changes such as quitting smoking may be recommended to reduce dry eye symptoms.
