Understanding Dry Eye Syndrome
When there are not enough tears or the tears in your eyes are not good quality, it makes it difficult for your eyes to stay moist and clean.
Normally, with every blink, tears cleanse the eye’s surface by washing away small microorganisms and dust and leave a protective coating of moisture.
There are several symptoms that can be associated with dry eyes, including:
- red, irritated eyes
- Constantly feeling like there is grit in the eyes
- sensitivity to light
- inability to wear contact lenses
- changes in vison, such as blurriness or problems focusing
Dry Eye Syndrome Treatment
There is no one-approach treatment for dry eye syndrome because this condition can have so many different underlying causes, such as allergies, health conditions, and even your environment.
When you visit Main Street Optometry for treatment, we will first use specialized testing to measure how much moisture your eyes are producing and ask you a series of questions. This process helps to determine the causation factors so a precise plan of action can be used to treat the problem.
Even though dry eye syndrome is common, it is not a condition that should be neglected. Long-term lack of eye moisture can greatly affect your visual health.
