Dry Eyes, Blepharitis or Corneal Disease?
The Dry Center at Physician Eyecare of New York is committed to the treatment of dry eyes, blepharitis, and related disorders of the surface of the eye.
Some Causes of Dry Eyes
Dry eyes are more pronounced in persons who have reduced blink frequency, such as persons who do detailed technical work or those who work at a computer. Dry eye is sometimes worsened by contact lens wear or surgery.
Dry Eye Symptoms
Symptoms of dry eyes can include redness, dryness, burning, grittiness, excessive tearing, tired eyes, blurry vision, and sensitivity to light. Patients with dry eyes rate their discomfort at a level similar to the way heart patients rate chest pain.
Treatment of Dry Eyes
Many eye care professionals are not aware of the optimal treatment of dry eyes. When it comes to treatment of dry eyes, instillation of tears alone is often not sufficient. We take a multi-pronged approach to dry eyes, and address tear quality, production, distribution, drainage, and maintenance. Although there is no cure for dry eye, careful management by an eye care professional can significantly improve symptoms and quality of life. Learn more about our treatment approach.
