Dry Eye (often called dry eye disease or dry eye syndrome) is one of the most under-diagnosed eye diseases, and it is one of the most common reasons why patients go see their eye doctor.
Dry Eye occurs when eyes do not produce the right quantity or quality of tears. Reduced tear production over a long period of time increases the risk of permanent damage and scarring to the front of the eye.
Many people mistake Dry Eye symptoms for allergies, climatic conditions or just eyestrain. While all of these may aggravate Dry Eye, they are not the cause. Symptoms of Dry Eye may include stinging, burning, scratchy sensation, sensitivity to light, tearing, tired eyes, and difficulty wearing contact lenses, as well as blurred vision, often worsening at the end of the day or after visually focusing for a prolonged period on a nearby task.
The first step in treating Dry Eye is to schedule an appointment with an eye doctor to diagnose the disease. The eye doctors at Eye Clinic of Austin use the most advanced technology to diagnose and treat Dry Eye. As an accredited Dry Eye Center, Eye Clinic of Austin understands that each patient is different and uses custom prescribed therapies, which can significantly reduce Dry Eye.
