Find Relief From Dry Eye
Tears are far more than just "salt water." They are a complex mixture of water, essential fatty oils, and mucus that both protect and nourish the eyes.
A lack of tears is not just uncomfortable, it is also unhealthy for your eyes. There are many common symptoms including:
Stinging, burning or “gritty” sensations
Stringy eye mucus
Sensitivity to light
Eye redness and fatigue
Difficulty with contact lenses
Difficulty with night driving
While the symptoms of dry eye are universal, there are many specific causes, each with a different treatment plan.
Some are temporary, like dry environments, windy locations, or smoky air. But many are medically based and long-lasting and include inflammation of ocular tissues, underlying medical conditions, side effects of drugs or surgery, contact use or body changes due to hormones or aging.
