Dry Eyes

woman applying eyedroppersThe most common complaint Optometrist hear from their patients on a daily basis is, “my eyes are red and burn” or “my eyes feel gritty and dry”. These are the hallmark symptoms of dry eye. Tears are necessary for maintaining the health of the front surface of the eye and for providing clear vision.

The list of causes for dry eye is virtually endless. Age, gender, medication, medical conditions, environmental conditions including the factors affecting the tear film stability and subsequent tear evaporation and dryness.

Dry eye can be diagnosed through a comprehensive eye examination with special emphasis on the evaluation of the quantity and quality of the tears produced by the eyes.
