Dry eyes have a variety of symptoms not limited to itching, burning or a scratchy sensation. This can often make it difficult to wear contact lenses or may prove unbearable in certain environmental conditions. The specialists at Eye Associates can offer solutions that greatly improve contact lens comfort for patients who experience dry eyes. We also offer dry eye management for those not wearing contacts.
While we cannot change the tear production given to you by Mother Nature, we can improve the amount of tears on the surface of the eyes with the aid of artificial tears, lacrimal duct occlusion or Restasis. We encourage you to make an appointment with one of our doctors to help you determine which solution is best for you.
