What is Dry Eye?
Dry Eye Blaine

Our eyes need tears to stay healthy and comfortable, dry eye is a condition which causes symptoms of burning, scratchy and irritated eyes. It actually affects your vision because the tears are part of your refracting system.

 

Dry Eye Symptoms

Some of the symptoms of dry eye are:

  • Your eyes feel like they are stinging and burning
  • Mucus in or around your eyes
  • Your eyes are red and irritated
  • Wearing contact lenses becomes painful

 

Causes of Dry Eye

There are quite a few causes for dry eye, including age, gender (women are more susceptible than men), certain medications, our environment, contact lens use, LASIK, and working on the computer.

 

Remedy

While there is no complete cure for dry eye, artificial tears, prescription eye drops, lid hygiene, Omega 3’s, and drinking a lot of water while decreasing caffeine intake often helps keep you comfortable and seeing well.
