Dry eyes occur either when your tears are of poor quality or if you do not produce enough to provide adequate lubrication. Dry eyes can lead to holes in the tear film, exposing the corneal nerves and causing pain and irritation every time you blink. Since you blink nearly 11,500 times a day, dry eyes can be extremely painful.
Treatment depends entirely on the cause of your dry eyes. What is causing your dry eyes can be determined during a comprehensive eye exam.
Not all treatments work for all types of dry eyes. And in some cases, you may need more than one treatment to find total relief. During the exam process, we can put together a personalized treatment plan based on your specific needs.
