Dry Eye Management

Dry eye management involves more than just relying on eye drops. While eye drops can provide temporary relief, there are other important aspects to consider in effectively addressing this condition. It's crucial to identify and address the underlying causes of dry eyes, such as environmental factors or systemic conditions, in order to develop a holistic approach to managing this issue. Our skilled and knowledgeable optometrists can develop a personalized plan tailored to your needs, incorporating various effective treatments such as medication, lid hygiene, and warm compresses.

Our cutting-edge technologies, including radiofrequency and intense pulse light therapy, target common issues like burning, itching, redness, and irritation. Say goodbye to discomfort and restore moisture to your eyes with our effective and innovative solutions

Common Dry Eye symptoms include:

Stinging or gritty sensation in the eyes

Light sensitivity

Excessive tearing followed by noticeable lack of moisture

Occasional bouts of blurred vision

Contact lenses discomfort

Low tolerance of activities entailing sustained visual engagement, such as reading or working on the computer

What once was more typically an age-related condition, especially high risk for women during menopause, is now being increasingly diagnosed in younger generations due to the rise in digital-screen viewing.

Lack of balance in your tear-flow system is a common reason people experience Dry Eye, but there are other causes. Your tear film can be dried out by things like air conditioners and heaters. Certain drugs like antihistamines have side effects that affect your tear supply. And there are also diseases that affect the ability to create tears, such as Sjogren’s syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, and collagen vascular diseases.

If you experience dry eye symptoms, give us a call for a consultation. Often times, treatment is as simple as medicated eye drops or ointments, some available over the counter. Visit Yorkville Eye Care for Dry Eye relief.
