What is Dry Eye?
When eyes lose their ability to produce tears normally, it causes irritation and is one of the main reasons people schedule a visit to see an eye care professional. Dry eye is so common because it is caused by a variety of factors like age, environment, and screen time. With the right treatment, it is a very manageable condition.
Relieving Dry Eyes
Dry Eye syndrome is a chronic condition that may not be completely curable. However, the comfort and the health of your eye can be improved using artificial tears. Mild dry eye symptoms may be treated with over-the-counter medications such as artificial tears, gels, and ointments. Consult with your eye care professional to determine the cause and a treatment strategy best for you.
