Understanding Dry Eye

Dry eye syndrome is a vision condition that can occur when your eyes do not produce enough tears to stay hydrated, or something goes wrong with the tear production process. Dry eyes can damage your cornea if left untreated, so staying on top of your symptoms is important.

Exploring Dry Eye Syndrome Symptoms

Dry eye symptoms can result from the normal aging process, exposure to certain environmental conditions, hormonal changes, digital eye strain, and more. 

Tear instability can lead to inflammation and lead to dry eyes as well. Your tears are comprised of 3 layers:

  • The oily outer layer
  • The watery middle layer
  • The inner mucus layer

If the glands that produce these elements in your tears become inflamed or are not producing tears properly, dry eye syndrome can occur. This inflammation can also cause meibomian gland dysfunction, which clogs the small glands in your eyelids that produce the oily outer layer of your tears.

Common signs and symptoms of dry eye syndrome can include: 

  • Stinging or gritty feeling in the eye
  • Scratchy and uncomfortable eyes
  • Fluctuating vision
  • A burning feeling or feeling something foreign in the eye

It’s essential to treat and manage dry eye syndrome to help alleviate symptoms, so you can focus on what matters. Scheduling an eye exam with us is a great first step and can help us prepare a personalized treatment plan for your visual needs.
