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
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.

I was very impressed with not only the excellent service from the front desk to all the staff and Doctor. I was also happy to get an appointment to have my eyes checked in just a couple of days. I highly recommend this office!!!
All staff are super friendly! Always a good experience for myself as well as my family!
Dr. Andreasen and staff were absolutely amazing. My eye exam was comfortable and they were able to answer any questions I may have had. I found the perfect frames with the help of Claire and my glasses were ready very quickly! The location is beautiful and everyone made me feel welcome. Would highly recommend
Everything top touch. We were treated very professionally.
Our visit was very informative. Dr. Jennifer acted in truly professional manner explaining everything each step of the consultation. She was in no rush to finish the eye examination but took the time and effort to answer all our concerns. My husband and I were informed of all our options and the next steps we need to take.
First visit to the office was great, staff was helpful, walked me through the process for each test, and look forward to my follow up.
Dr. Nguyen is so great with kids! She has seen my five year old daughter twice now and we’ve had two great experiences. She is great at keeping my daughters attention and making eye exams fun 🙂

Wonderful service all round. Everyone was helpful and took the time to explain every step of the process, from examination to selecting the right glasses/lenses for me.
Jessica was/is FANTASTIC with my kids!!! She made the experience for my son so much fun!
Dr. Sarah is always so enthusiastic and encouraging. My imaging was good and my eyesight has not really changed. She was so happy and congratulated me. I love having such an outgoing and enthusiastic doctor! I look forward to having an appointment every time!
Service was very friendly as always and so efficient. I feel confident in their care. Technician helping me with selecting eye glasses was very knowledgeable and really helped me to decide on the best ones for me
My experience was exceptional from when I first made my appointment and right through until I received my glasses. Thanks to all involved in my care.
Sarah is a very caring doctor. She goes above and beyond what one would expect from an exceptional optometrist. When she was unable to get me in to see my ophthalmologist she and her receptionist ensured I got the best care. I had an appointment at the Ivey Eye Institute the next day! Thank you!
Our experience with this office has been absolutely amazing!!
