If you’ve got dry eyes, you know the symptoms: itching, gritty feeling, dryness, burning – even sometimes excessive tearing. But there are steps you can take to make your dry eyes comfortable again. What Causes Dry Eyes? Your eyes feel dry when they consistently don’t have enough lubricating tears on their surface. This is caused by:

  • EXTENDED COMPUTER USE

  • WEARING CONTACT LENSES

  • LIVING IN AN AREA WITH HEAVY POLLUTION, WIND OR SUN

  • TAKING MEDICATIONS LIKE ANTIHISTAMINES, HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE MEDICINES, DIURETICS, TRANQUILIZERS OR SLEEPING TABLETS

  • BEING PREGNANT

  • REFRACTIVE SURGERY

  • THE AGING PROCESS—OVER TIME THE EYE MAKES LESS TEARS

 

What Can You Do? For many people, dry eye can be remedied by using artificial tears; eye drops designed to moisturize and comfort dry eyes.

Artificial Tear Eye drops come close to the makeup of natural tears, but in some cases there is no substitute. If you’ve been using lubricating eye drops and they don’t seem to really help, you should see us about other options. We also offer advanced treatment with type specific tear lubricants, prescription treatment with RESTASIS, XIIDRA, hydrating masks and/or punctal plugs.

 

We are not an approved on-site lab for tear testing including TEARLAB and INFLAMMADRY.
