Dry Eye Treatments
Dry eye can be as annoying as it is common. We all experience dry eyes occasionally if we’re in a hot, dry environment or spend too much time staring at a computer screen. Many people experience dry eyes even without these factors, however.
The discomfort and inconvenience of dry eyes can keep you from certain activities and impact your quality of life. The condition can also have more serious and long-lasting effects, such as increasing your risk of eye infections, corneal damage, and vision loss. You don’t have to let dry eyes hold you back. Learn more about the condition, what causes it, and our treatment options at One EyeCare!
What is Dry Eye?
Chronic dry eyes or dry eye syndrome occurs when your tears can’t keep your eyes sufficiently lubricated. This causes eye discomfort, with common symptoms such as:
- Stinging and burning
- Eye redness
- Watery eyes
- Blurry vision
- Eye fatigue
- A scratchy sensation or feeling like there is something in your eyes
- Difficulty tolerating contact lenses
- Mucus in or around the eyes
These uncomfortable side effects can result from inadequate tears or low-quality tears. Certain environments may make dry eyes worse. For example, people often experience eye irritation in air conditioning, airplanes, or windy or smokey areas.
