Dry eyes are common for patients across the country and can leave your eyes feeling irritated, gritty, and needing relief.

If you’re struggling with dry eyes, don’t hesitate and contact us today!

Dry Eye Explained

Dry eyes can occur when your tear production and drainage systems aren’t balanced. There are two common ways dry eyes occur:

  • Aqueous tear deficient dry eye: Your eyes might produce fewer tears due to ageing, medications, or even your environment.
  • Evaporative dry eye: Your tear film is made up of 3 distinct ingredients; mucin, water, and oil. If your tear film is lacking any of these ingredients, it can lead to dry eye symptoms.

Dry eye symptoms include:

  • A stinging, burning, or gritty sensation
  • Blurry vision
  • Light sensitivity
  • Redness
  • Wateriness
  • Stringy mucus or discharge
  • Irritation

Dry eyes can be caused by:

Treatments for Dry Eyes

Warm compresses can help melt away blockages in your tear glands caused by conditions like meibomian gland dysfunction or blepharitis. Your optometrist places the warm compress over your eyelid for a little while, helping soften or melt the blockages in your lacrimal or meibomian glands.

Artificial tears, or eye drops, are common for treating dry eye syndrome. Depending on the underlying cause, you may need prescription specialty eye drops to achieve the relief you need. Please consult your doctor before using any over-the-counter eye drops.

Restasis is a medication used for patients who are experiencing dry eyes due to complications from lupus or Sjogren’s syndrome. Restasis is a prescribed medication that helps reduce inflammation in the tear glands and prevent further damage.

Xiidra is another option for prescription eye drops. Xiidra helps reduce inflammation of your conjunctiva and lacrimal glands.
