Do you find yourself constantly using eye drops due to dry, scratchy eyes? Maybe you have a feeling that there is continuously “something” in your eye? Don’t dismiss the problem as just an uncomfortable sensation. These can be symptoms of Dry Eye Syndrome, which can result in irritation and inflammation of sensitive eye tissue.

 

What is Dry Eye Syndrome?

Your tears are a natural system for moisturizing your eye, washing away debris, and neutralizing germs and bacteria. For this reason, tears are essential for healthy eyes. Dry eye syndrome is a condition in which either your eyes don’t produce enough tears, or tears evaporate too quickly, leaving your eyes dry, irritated, and vulnerable to infection. Dry Eye Syndrome has a variety of causes including:

  • Aging or Menopause
  • Certain Medications
  • Certain Diseases
  • Long Term Contact Lens
  • Insufficient Blinking
  • Incomplete Eyelid Closure
  • Eyelid Disease
  • Smoking
  • Climate
