Dry Eyes

Dry eyes syndrome occurs when a person has insufficient tears. It occurs in people who are unable to produce tears properly or when the tears produced are of the wrong consistency and evaporate too quickly.

Permanent loss of vision is very uncommon; however, if the condition is left untreated it can lead to:

  • Pain
  • Ulcers
  • Scars on the cornea
  • Some loss of vision

Dry eye symptoms may include any of the following:

  • Stinging of the eye
  • Feeling as if something is in the eye
  • Episodes of excess tears following very dry eye periods
  • Discharge from the eye
  • Pain and redness of the eye
  • Irregular periods blurred vision
  • Heavy eyelids
  • Inability to cry when emotionally stressed
  • Difficulty when reading, working on the computer, or any activity that requires sustained visual attention

After consulting with your ophthalmologist you treatment will be issued based on your individual symptoms and circumstances.
