What Are the Signs of Dry Eyes?
If you are suffering from eye dryness, you will feel a rough, uncomfortable sensation in your eyes. You may blink frequently or be tempted to rub your eyes. Common symptoms include grittiness, itching, irritation, excessive watering, and redness. Repeated blinking often does little to resolve these symptoms, and flushing the eyes is only a fleeting solution.
What Causes Dry Eyes?
Normally, your eyes are constantly lubricated and kept moist by the tears produced by your tear glands every time you blink. If you have dry eyes, this function may be impaired. Common causes include
- Hormonal changes
- Allergies such as pollen
- Autoimmune disease
We can help identify the exact cause of your discomfort during your evaluation at one of our offices.
What Are the Treatment Options?
At Paragon Eye Associates, we can provide thorough eye exams to determine the cause of your symptoms. Once the cause has been identified, we can provide treatment and a prescription if needed. In most cases, dry eyes can be addressed using lubricating eye drops. Get in touch to learn more today.
