Vision Conditions

Dry eye

Dry EyeTears are vital for maintaining the health of the front surface of the eye and for providing clear vision. Dry eye occurs when there are insufficient tears to lubricate and nourish the eye. A common and often chronic problem, particularly in older adults, people with dry eyes may experience symptoms of irritated, gritty, scratchy, or burning eyes; a feeling of something in their eyes; excess watering; and blurred vision. Advanced dry eyes may damage the front surface of the eye and further impair vision.

Treatments for dry eyes aim to restore or maintain the normal amount of tears in the eye to minimize dryness and related discomfort and to maintain eye health. If you are experiencing symptoms of dry eye, talk to us. We can help.
