Find Relief From Dry Eye Disease

If your eyes are continually feeling dry and gritty, you may be experiencing dry eye disease. Left untreated, dry eye disease can make it difficult to perform daily tasks. Your eyes may feel extremely uncomfortable, often to the point that it’s hard to focus or even keep them open.

However, all hope is not lost! Dry eye disease is often detected, diagnosed, and treated very easily. You can also purchase over-the-counter eye drops to keep your eyes feeling lubricated in the interim while you’re waiting for your appointment, but we recommend always asking your optometrist first.

If you’d like to learn more about dry eye disease and what we can do to treat it, please contact our office to book an appointment!

What is Dry Eye Disease?

Dry eye disease is a common condition that affects the tear film; the layer of tears on your eyes that keeps them feeling lubricated. Typically, dry eye disease is caused by a tear film that is out of balance.

Your tear film has 3 layers: oil, water, and mucus. If one layer is out of balance, your tears may be of low quality or can evaporate too quickly, leaving your eyes feeling dry.

Dry eye disease is also caused by several external factors, such as the normal ageing process, hormonal changes, certain medications, and dry or windy climates. Dry eyes can also develop as a symptom of underlying health problems, such as rheumatoid arthritis.

Treating Dry Eye Disease

Dry eye disease can be detected, diagnosed, and treated relatively simply. There are many medications and procedures available to bring you relief from your gritty, itchy eyes.

Visiting us for an appointment is important before attempting to self-medicate, as in some cases, your dry eye could be caused by an underlying health concern or medication, and treating that will subsequently treat your dry eyes.

There are many different treatments for dry eye disease:

During your appointment, we will discuss your options with you to ensure the treatment we recommend is best for you.

Risks of Dry Eye Disease

Your tear film exists for a reason: to keep your eyes moisturized. When your tears aren’t keeping your eyes lubricated, bacteria and debris can accumulate and cause complications that may affect your quality of life.

If you’re experiencing symptoms of dry eye disease, you should see your optometrist. Symptoms include:

  • Itchy, gritty, burning eyes
  • Redness or swelling
  • Overly watery eyes
  • Stringy mucus
  • Light sensitivity

If you do not treat your dry eye disease, complications can occur and cause significant damage. These include:
