Relieving Dry Eyes
Suffering from dry eye disease can be irritating and frustrating without the proper management and therapy. Some patients may think dry eyes are something they simply have to put up with and it’s normal. At Perry & Morgan EyeCare, we want to dispel this misconception.
Our practice is excited to offer our community the latest in dry eye therapy. Our dry eye therapy offers patients immediate dry eye relief and helps to treat the root cause of the issue.
What is Dry Eye Disease?
Dry eye disease occurs when the eyes aren’t able to produce enough high-quality tears to keep themselves lubricated. This can be caused by factors such as aging, certain medications, or meibomian gland dysfunction.
The meibomian glands produce an oil that’s responsible for preventing the tears from evaporating too quickly. Even if your eyes are producing enough tears, they may be evaporating too quickly—causing dry eye disease.
The following are common dry eye symptoms:
- Stinging, burning, or scratchy sensation
- Sensitivity to light
- Mucus in or around the eye
- Difficulty wearing contacts
- Foriegn body sensation
- Difficulty driving at night
- Watery eyes
- Blurred vision
