Dry eye is an extremely uncomfortable condition that can cause a lot of frustrating problems for your eyes. To find out whether you have dry eye and to get treatment for it, you need to get an eye exam from an optometrist. At Dr. C Vision Care, we have provided residents of Pensacola, Perdido Key, Lillam, and Elberta with dry eye treatment services for many years.
Symptoms of Dry Eye
Burning, stinging, and redness are common symptoms of dry eye. Your eyes may water due to overcompensation for dryness. Many sufferers have stings of mucus in or around their eyes. Your eyes might feel scratchy or like there is something in there. Many people also have tired, fatigued eyes and feel eye strain.
Causes of Dry Eye
People generally develop dry eyes due to poor tear production. If tears are lacking in quality or quantity, their eyes cannot stay moist and comfortable. Poor tear production can be caused by wind exposure, taking certain medications, diabetes, and other health concerns. All of these causes can lead to a problem that needs to be assessed with an eye exam from the optometrist.
