Dry eyes is a common condition but nonetheless can cause serious discomfort without implementing any treatments. Dry eyes can happen because of a plethora of different reasons, but the first step to treating your symptoms will be to book an appointment.

Dry Eye Causes

Every patient is different, and every patient will have their own reason why they are experiencing dry eye symptoms.

Some causes include:

  • Reduced meibum or mucin (chemicals used to help make tears)
  • Medications
  • Ageing
  • Medical conditions
  • Tear gland damage
  • Tear evaporation
  • Digital eye strain
  • Allergies
  • Eyelid irritation and inflammation

Dry Eye Symptoms

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you might be suffering from dry eyes.

  • Eye redness
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Overly watery eyes
  • Blurred vision or eye fatigue
  • Difficulty wearing contact lenses
  • Stringy mucus around your eyes
  • A stinging, burning, or scratchy sensation in your eyes

Dry Eye Evaluation

The optometrist will use different tests and instruments to evaluate the cause of your dry eyes. The tests and instruments that are used in the office include the iPen, InflammaDry and the Oculus Keratograph.

Treatment Options

BlephEx is an eyelid treatment for blepharitis, a disease that affects the eyelids and can cause symptoms of dry eyes. BlephEx is a device that uses a micro-sponge to gently cleanse the edges of your eyelids to remove bacteria and debris that have collected along your lidline, causing inflammation and discomfort.
