FAQ With Our Eye Doctor...
Dry eye syndrome can only be diagnosed by an eye doctor. We take your symptoms into account, including the eyes feeling dry, burning, itchy or irritated. Watery eyes and blurry vision are also common because the tears, which protect the outermost surface of the eye, can be unstable.
There are numerous symptoms of dry eye disease, but the most common ones include excess tearing, lack of tearing, burning, redness, foreign body sensation, intermittently blurred vision, and an inability to tolerate contact lenses. If you have any of the above symptoms, and want a professional diagnosis, please make an appointment here.
Dry eyes are caused by many factors. If you know you have dry eyes, try to pay attention to what makes them feel better or worse. For example, do not blow your hair dryer directly towards your eyes. Add moisture to the air with a humidifier. Use eye protection outdoors like wrap around sunglasses or other protective eyewear. Be mindful of changes in your environment such as traveling. Position your computer screen below eye level. Stop smoking and avoid smoky areas. Supplement with Omega 3 and use lubricating eye drops.
When our eyes water, it's often a sign of dry eyes. If the tear film is off balance, this can cause excessive tearing. The cause of dry eyes is multi-factorial: It is possible you are dehydrated or sometimes it can be the environment you are exercising in. Air from a fan can be drying, or if you are outside exercising that may cause dryness. If your vision also becomes blurred when you are exercising, this may be a sign of a more serious condition. It is important to have a regular examination to ensure your eye are healthy, and we can recommend some dry eye treatments if that appears to be the cause of the excessive tearing.
