What is Dry Eye Syndrome?

Our eyes are constantly producing tears to help keep our eyes moist and hydrated. What happens if our eyes stop providing us with the proper lubrication? In most cases this means you are experiencing the effects of dry eyes. Don’t worry, you are not alone. Dry eyes are exceptionally common and occur when there is lack of moisture on the surface of the eye. The consequences of dry eyes can be minor or extreme. Some common symptoms are:

  • Tired or red eyes
  • Burning or stinging of the eye
  • A scratchy or itchy feeling in the eye
  • Soreness within the eye
  • Constant feeling of something in the eye

The list can go on and on. Most of the time when people experience these symptoms, they turn to eye drops without seeking professional help. However, sometimes using eye drops does not always offer complete relief. We are happy to announce that we provide solutions that can assist in soothing your dry eyes.
