Dry eyes occurs when the eyes aren’t sufficiently moisturized, leading to itching, redness and pain. The eyes may become dry and irritated because the tear ducts don’t produce enough tears, or because the tears themselves have a chemical imbalance.
People usually begin experiencing dry eye symptoms as they age, but the condition can also result from certain medications, conditions or injuries. Some dry eye conditions can lead to permanent ocular or vision changes so it is important to not ignore any symptoms you may have. Please let us evaluate any issues that are of concern.
Another option for dry eyes symptoms is punctal plugs. Odyssey Punctal Plugs supply various types, sizes, and shapes of punctal plugs. The doctor insert the plugs which helps dry eye sufferers keep their own tears in their eyes longer.
