Eye Comfort is Key 

Dry eyes are a common eye condition that affects many. It’s generally caused by your insufficient tear ingredients that help keep your eyes comfortable. However, there are treatments available to provide relief, and we can tailor yours to fit your needs! 

Complications like eye infections, inflammation, and corneal ulcers can occur if your chronically dry eyes are left untreated for an extended time

Happy eyes are hydrated eyes. Let us provide you with treatment and relief!

What Causes Dry Eye Disease? 

Many factors can affect your tear production. Some causes can include age, certain types of medications, computer use, exposure to the elements, and various autoimmune diseases. Your optometrist can determine the cause after conducting a comprehensive eye exam and recommend the best course of action for your situation. 

Symptoms of Dry Eye Disease

The most common symptoms of dry eye disease include: 

  • A stinging, burning sensation in your eyes
  • Mucus in or around your eyes
  • Light Sensitivity 
  • Redness 
  • Difficulty wearing contact lenses
  • Blurred vision or eye fatigue

Relief is on the Way 

Dry eye disease symptoms can vary from patient to patient, depending on their particular situation and the cause of their discomfort. Common treatments for this condition can include artificial tears, the blocking of tear ducts, prescription eye drops, warm compresses, and eyelid cleaners

Relief is waiting for you at David W Stemley, OD, Inc. We have experience with dry eye disease and a variety of treatment options available. Contact us, and we’ll work together to find the solution for your dry, itchy eyes.
