Dry Eye: Expert Care Eases A Common Annoyance

Nearly 5 million Americans suffer from dry eye and related symptoms. If you’re experiencing dry, itchy, red or irritated eyes on a daily basis, the eye doctors at MyEyeDr. can provide you relief. Dry eye is simply what occurs when your eyes don’t produce enough tears to stay wet. This happens when your tears aren’t working properly or can’t make enough tears to sufficiently moisten your eyes.

What Are The Symptoms Of Dry Eye?

  • Stinging, burning eyes
  • Increased irritation from smoke or wind
  • Redness in eyes
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Blurred vision
  • Difficulty wearing contact lenses

If you frequently suffer one or several of these symptoms, you may have chronic dry eye that requires an optometrist visit. Dry eye can be caused by a number of external, lifestyle or biological factors. Biological factors that can cause dry eye include:

  • Tear glands don’t create enough tears to keep your eyes wet and sufficiently moist
  • Tears dry too quickly
