Dry eye disease is a condition where there are insufficient tears to lubricate and nourish the eye. The disease can be uncomfortable, and the lack of tear production can lead to inflammation and damage if left untreated.
In some cases, dry eyes can be due to Meibomian gland dysfunction, where the glands in the eye cannot produce enough oil. The EyeDoctors Optometrists can help diagnose the root of the problem and form a treatment plan to give you the relief you need.
For those who frequently wear contacts, dry eyes can be a common side effect over time. This can be due to contact lenses absorbing too much liquid from your eyes, rather than your eyes absorbing the moisture.
Our eye doctors can help provide treatment to decrease irritation caused by contacts. It is important to keep your contact lenses clean. If you are experiencing symptoms, try switching contact solutions. Another option is to switch to silicone hydrogel contact lenses.
