It is good to know that dry eye can be easily treated at our optical practice, where patients come to for Country Club BX eye care.
Dry eye is an eye condition which is caused by one of two different problems. Either your eyes are not creating a large enough amount of tears, or the amount of tears that are being created are simply not effective enough in cleaning and nourishing your eyes. Dry eye is a common eye condition that becomes more common as people become older. Dry can also be caused by blinking or eyelid problems, medications such as antihistamines or oral contraceptives, living in a dry climate, by wind and dust, or other common situations. If dry eye continues it can end up damaging eye tissues or scar your cornea, and even make it difficult for you to wear contact lenses. When patients come in to see our eye doctor for dry eye they will be evaluated for this condition. Treatments for dry eye can include medicated eye drops. In more advanced cases of dry eye patients may need to have a small procedure performed which will allow tiny silicone plugs to be placed in their tear ducts.
