When you have dry eyes, it’s not dangerous but it is most certainly not comfortable. The effects are temporary, fortunately, though they may include blurry vision, which you’ll notice. Other possible symptoms are tired eyes or a burning or stinging sensation, eye redness, sensitivity to light, and discomfort when wearing your contact lenses. Here at NV Eye Surgery, you can depend on the diagnosis and evaluation of your condition followed by our Henderson dry eye treatment.
There are three possible reasons why you have dry eyes. Either your eyes are not making enough tears, the composition of your tears is not of the necessary quality, or your tears are evaporating too quickly and they are not able to do the job that they’re supposed to. Because of the dry climate in our area, that is not uncommon. Smoke and win can make the situation worse. As part of a comprehensive eye exam to detect dry eyes, our eye doctor may also conduct specific tests to measure the volume and constitution of your tears, which will help point toward the most appropriate treatment. There are various possibilities, including artificial tears in eye drop form, medication, and the placement of punctal plugs. In addition to our Henderson dry eye treatment, it is very helpful to take some lifestyle measures. Examples include avoiding smoke, wearing eyeglasses or sunglasses when out on windy days, and getting a humidifier for your home to add moisture to the indoor air.
Dry eyes are a potential issue everywhere, but the condition occurs more frequently in areas where dry air is prevalent. There’s no reason, though, that you need to suffer with the consequences of it. All you have to do is to simply reach out to our office and schedule yourself a convenient time for an appointment. Let our eye doctor examine you and administer our Henderson dry eye treatment.
