Dry Eye Treatment

Dry Eye

When a patient has eyes that feel uncomfortable and dry, it may be due to dry eye syndrome. Dry eye is a common condition that is caused by issues with the eye’s tear film. If you may have dry eye, it's time to see one of our ophthalmologists. Call our Poughkeepsie or Yorktown Heights, NY, office to schedule your eye exam and to get help for your dry eyes. 


Common Symptoms of Dry Eye

If your eyes feel irritated and dry, it may be dry eye syndrome. This condition can cause eyes to turn pink or red, and it can result in eye fatigue. The dryness and irritation may prompt you to close your eyes often to try to soothe them. If you have pain in your eyes and feel eye strain, it may be this condition. Sometimes, dry eye results in watery eyes because the body tries to compensate for the dryness. Many patients with dry eyes have the feeling that there's something in their eyes. They may have eyes that sting or burn, and they might feel gritty. With these symptoms, it's time to see the eye doctor to get treatment. 

Causes of Dry Eye

There are many potential causes of dry eye. When it's winter in New York, it's common for the air to be so dry that it causes dry eye. A lot of screen time can also cause it. There are a lot of medications that can cause this condition, including many allergy medications, immunosuppressants, and antidepressants. If you spend a lot of time outdoors without sunglasses, this can allow the wind to dry out your eyes. If you have a lot of air conditioning in a small space or a fan that points toward you, these can also be causes. Be sure to check the vents on your air system and make sure they aren't blowing toward your face. If you go outside, always wear sunglasses, especially if you run or go biking.
