Dry Eye Syndrome
Arizona’s dry climate can take a toll on your eyes, drying them out. Dry eye can be painful, interfere with your vision, and make wearing contacts nearly impossible.
Don’t live with dry eye—find relief at Optical Expressions. Our optometry experts have years of experience providing dry eye treatments in Phoenix, Scottsdale, and the surrounding areas.
What Causes Dry Eye?
Dry eye may develop when your eyes can’t make enough tears. Sometimes it stems from the eyes not making quality tears. If your eyes struggle to produce enough fluid or the fluid evaporates too rapidly, your eyes can quickly dry out.
Other causes may include:
How we Diagnose Dry Eye?
First, our eye doctor may ask about your symptoms and when they occur. You will usually have to undergo a comprehensive eye exam. Our eye doctor may also want to measure your tears and possibly evaluate their composition.
Dry Eye Treatment
To keep your eyes thoroughly hydrated, we may prescribe eye drops that you use as needed or on a regular basis. These prescription eye drops are better quality compared to over-the-counter alternatives.
Our eye doctor will also suggest lifestyle changes you can make to increase your comfort. Recommendations usually include taking breaks from looking at screens for prolonged periods and blinking more frequently.
If you can’t wear contact lenses or find them uncomfortable because of dry eye, our eye doctor can prescribe lenses that will hydrate without irritating your eyes.
