What Causes Dry Eye?

Dry eye occurs when your eyes don’t produce enough tears or the tears lack the ability to do their job. It’s essentially caused by a problem with the tear film, which can be disrupted due to many factors, like aging, environmental conditions, health conditions or diseases, digital eye strain, or medications like antihistamines.

Eye conditions like meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD) or blepharitis can also cause dry eye.

Dry Eye Symptoms

Dry eye symptoms can vary from person to person and are often confused with cold symptoms or allergies. But, if they don’t go away and impact your daily life, visit our office for an eye exam. 

Common dry eye symptoms include:

  • Redness
  • Stinging
  • Burning
  • Grittiness
  • Scratchiness
  • Feeling like there is something in the eye
  • Excessive tearing

Dry Eye Treatments

Dry eye treatments focus on addressing the root cause of your condition. Chronic dry eye can cause serious discomfort and long-term eye concerns, so treatment should help you find relief and prevent issues like corneal scarring.

You may require multiple treatments or a combination of methods to address your dry eye. We’re here to walk you through your options and find what will work for you.

Lid Hygiene & Artificial Tears

Common dry eye management options include lid hygiene and artificial tears. They come as medicated drops, gels, or ointments to help reduce inflammation and increase moisture on the eye’s surface.

Warm compresses add heat and pressure to the eye area to help unclog the tear glands for those with meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD).

Medicated eyelid wipes effectively remove eyelid debris and bacteria that cause blepharitis, which can leave eyelids flaky and irritated.

If you have severe dry eye or other treatment options haven’t helped, we can prescribe medications to reduce inflammation and stimulate tear production. We can also refer you for specialized dry eye treatments.
