DRY EYE SYNDROME

Dry, scratchy or burning eyes. The sensation that there’s something in your eyes. Watery eyes. It could be allergies. It could be something “in the air.” Or it could be Dry Eye Syndrome.
Dry Eye Syndrome is a chronic condition where the eyes either do not produce enough tears, or produce tears that evaporate too quickly. As a result, the eyes are denied sufficient moisture and lubrication.
Our office can determine if your symptoms are a result of Dry Eye Syndrome and, if so, recommend a treatment plan that may include:
  • Lubricating eye drops that can temporarily relieve some symptoms
  • Prescription eye drops that increase tear production
  • Inserts placed under your eyelid that slowly release lubrication throughout the day
  • Lacrimal plugs that prevent tears from draining away too quickly
The first step towards relief from Dry Eye Syndrome is a comprehensive eye examination, so please contact our office for an appointment, or let us know that you’re experiencing symptoms of Dry Eye Syndrome at your next visit.
