What Are The Symptoms Of Dry Eye?
If you suffer from dry eye syndrome, you will most likely feel as if you have a foreign object inside of one or both of your eyes. This is often described as a grittiness in the eyes as if they have sand or dirt inside of them. You may notice you are unable to produce tears when you attempt to cry. Redness or a discharge from the eyes may also be prevalent if you suffer from this condition.
Why Are Tears Necessary?
If your eyes cannot produce enough tears, they will not have adequate lubrication to protect their surfaces. Inadequate moisture can also lead to poor vision. In addition to the quantity of moisture your eyes produce, the quality is also a concern. If the quality is not up to par, your tears may diminish very quickly after production. Our family optometrist will take a look at your eyes in detail to determine whether your tear output is lacking in any way.
What Can Our Eye Doctor Do To Help?
If you are suffering from a dry eye condition, our eye doctor can help to improve your eye health with methods that help to increase or improve your tear output. In many cases, medication can be used as a means of treating severe dry eye syndrome. Our optometrist will discuss your treatment options after an assessment is conducted.
