Dry Eye Syndrome Treatment
Dry eye syndrome can present with a variety of symptoms, ranging from a scratchy sensation, to stinging or burning in the eye. Though seemingly counterintuitive, patients with dry eye may also experience excess tearing which tend to follow periods of dryness. Other symptoms include eyelid heaviness, eye pain, discharge, pain, and eye redness. Dry eye can even cause blurry vision. Now, as we move deeper into the digital age, dry eye has become more of an issue for patients. Staring at our phones and computer screens for increasing amounts of time, resulting in decreased blinking, can cause or aggravate dry eye symptoms. If you are a patient with a medical disease such as Sjogren's syndrome you may also experience very significant dry eye symptoms.
