Effective Dry Eye Treatment
Get Relief From Your Symptoms
Dry eye is a condition that makes your eyes feel itchy, burning, scratchy or dry due to an imbalance of tears needed for lubrication. You may also notice that your vision is blurred, and your eyes are red. If you experience this condition, whether occasionally or chronically, the eye doctors at Partners Pacific Optometry can provide services designed to bring relief from uncomfortable symptoms.
While anyone can become susceptible to this condition, those more at risk include people who:
- Are over the age of 50.
- Wear contact lenses incorrectly.
- Experience eye allergies.
- Have nutritional deficiencies.
- Take certain medications.
- Have specific conditions, such as autoimmune disorder.
- Are more sensitive to environmental factors, such as wind or air pollution.
If You Have Dry Eyes
This syndrome results from a breakdown in the quantity or quality of tears needed to sufficiently moisten, cleanse and protect your eyes. Every time you blink, dust and tiny particles get washed away from the surface of your eye. If your eyes don’t produce enough quality tears, the protective coating of moisture on your eyes dries up.
Symptoms can range from uncomfortable to painful. You may experience:
- Eyes that feel gritty, itchy or burning
- Sensitivity to light
- Blurred vision
- Stinging sensation
- Tired eyes
- Feeling as if something is in your eyes
The eye specialists at our vision center can check your eyes and diagnose the problem. Treatment can vary, depending on the severity of the issue, but may include specialized eye drops, medications or lifestyle changes, among other possible approaches.
