Dry Eye Syndrome:

Soothing Relief for Your Eyes

Navigating Dry Eye Syndrome

Dry Eye Syndrome is a common condition that occurs when your eyes do not produce enough tears or when the tears are of poor quality. This can lead to persistent dryness, discomfort, and sometimes blurred vision. At Vivid Visions Optometry, Inc., we understand how this condition can impact your daily life and are committed to providing effective relief and treatment.

Causes and Contributing Factors

Dry Eye Syndrome can arise from a variety of factors, including:

- Aging: Particularly common in individuals over 50.

- Environmental Conditions: Exposure to wind, dry air, and prolonged screen use.

- Medical Conditions: Conditions like diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, and thyroid disorders.

- Medications: Certain medications, such as antihistamines and blood pressure drugs, can reduce tear production.

- Eye Surgery: Previous surgical procedures can impact tear production.

Symptoms of Dry Eye Syndrome

Typical symptoms include:

- Persistent dryness, scratchiness, and a burning sensation in your eyes.

- Feeling like there is something in your eyes (foreign body sensation).

- Redness and irritation.

- Watery eyes, which is the body's response to the irritation of dry eyes.

Diagnosing Dry Eye Syndrome

Led by Dr. David Antonyan, O.D., our team uses advanced diagnostic methods to evaluate the quantity and quality of your tears. A comprehensive examination allows us to understand the underlying cause and tailor a treatment plan specific to your needs.

Treatment and Management

Treatment for Dry Eye Syndrome may include:

- Artificial Tears and Eye Drops: To supplement natural tear production in mild cases.

- Prescription Eye Drops: To reduce inflammation or stimulate tear production.

- Punctal Plugs: To block tear ducts and preserve natural tears.

- Lifestyle Adjustments: Recommendations on environmental changes and screen-time management.

- Nutritional Supplements: Omega-3 fatty acids can sometimes help improve tear quality.
