Do You Suffer from

Dry Eye?

In a perfect world, your eyes would have a beautiful layer of tears protecting and nourishing the surface. However, your tear film may be compromised, leaving your eyes exposed and malnourished. Dry eye disease is a common state that arises when that exposure happens. Tear film can be inadequate for many reasons with the core issues concerning quantity and/or quality of your tears. If you have dry eyes, you might experience any of the following symptoms:

  • Stinging or burning
  • Itchiness or irritation
  • Inconsistent vision or blurriness
  • Excessive tearing
  • Foreign body sensation (a feeling that something is in your eye)

Your Dry Eye

Evaluation.

The earlier Dry Eye Disease is detected the more effective your treatment can be. If you are experiencing any symptoms of dry eye, schedule an appointment with your doctor as soon as possible. At Quigley Eye Specialists, your eyes will be examined using sophisticated diagnostic tools to determine if you have dry eye and what type of dry eye you may have.

You and your doctor will discuss lifestyle habits, environmental factors, medications and health conditions that could be causing symptoms. Your doctor will provide you with a tailored plan of action designed to fit your specific condition and needs. Dry eye evaluations are covered by medical health insurance plans.

Questions?

Are there different types of tears?
Yes, there are two types of tears.

Reflex tears are those watery tears that arise when we cry and help moisten the eye.
Basal tears are oil based protective tears, acting as a shield between the eye and the rest of the world. Basal tears also provide oil for sustaining moisture on the surface of your eyes. Without the oil, tears quickly evaporate. Dry Eye is caused by a lack of one or both types of these tears.

Why do your eyes water when they are dry?
When the cornea is irritated, the body responds by creating more reflex tears. Since the reflex tears evaporate quickly without oily tears to protect the cornea, a common symptom of a lack of oil-based tears is, what seems contradicting, watery eyes.
