Dry Eye Syndrome

Dry Eye Syndrome can be caused by numerous factors including a dry environment, dehydration, medications such as antihistamines, hormonal changes including menopause and a variety of systemic diseases, particularly sjogren’s syndrome.

There are two distinct types of dry eye syndrome:

  • Aqueous Deficiency is caused by insufficient tear production with an inadequate amount of water in the tears.
  • Evaporative Dry Eye occurs when there isn’t enough oil in the tears to hold the watery layer on the eye and the watery layer evaporates.

The symptoms of dry eye syndrome vary between patients and may even be different for one individual from one day to the next, depending on the circumstances. A list of symptoms of dry eye syndrome are shown below:

  • Burning or scratching
  • Foreign body sensation (the feeling that there is something in your eye)
  • Watery eyes
  • Frequent eye infections
  • Difficulty opening eyes in the morning

Managing Dry Eyes

Dry Eye Syndrome is a chronic condition, but it can be managed with persistence and a number of innovative treatments which consist of:

  • Artificial tears
  • Restasis
  • Punctal plugs
  • Meibomian Gland Expression
  • Omega 3 Fatty Acids

If you suffer from any of the symptoms of dry eye syndrome, contact Elite Vision Therapy Centre to request an appointment to investigate the right treatment option for you.
