With our new state of the art equipment, we are able to diagnose dry eyes and treat your condition based on the results.
Dry Eye Symptoms:
Symptoms of dry eyes and dry eye syndrome include:
- Burning sensation
- Itchy Eyes
- Aching sensations
- Heavy eyes
- Fatigued eyes
- Sore eyes
- Dryness sensation
- Red Eyes
- Photo Phobia
- Blurred Vision
- Another common symptom is something called a foreign body sensation — the feeling that grit or some other object or material is “in” your eye.
As odd as it may sound, watery eyes, also can be a symptom of dry eye syndrome.
This is because dryness on the eye’s surface sometimes will over-stimulate production of the watery component of your tears as a protective mechanism. But this “reflex tearing” does not stay on the eye long enough to correct the underlying dry eye condition.
In addition to these symptoms, dry eyes can cause inflammation and (sometimes permanent) damage to the surface of the eye.
Dry eye syndrome also can affect the outcomes of Lasik and cataract surgery.
