If you have dry, scratchy eyes no matter what the season you may suffer from dry eye condition. Fortunately here at The Vision Place we offer dry eye therapy in San Antonio, TX. Learn more about detecting dry eye and what is involved with treatment.
Dry eye condition is an eye disorder in which your eye ducts do not produce enough tears, or too many tears when not needed. Signs that you have dry eye include at least one eye that is dry, inflamed, and red. You may also have discomfort with bright lights, while feeling that you have sand or dirt in your eye.
Women who are entering menopause have more of a risk of developing dry eye, as this is an age-related condition. However, you can also develop dry eye condition from looking at digital screens. This is especially noted with the blue light of a computer screen. Individuals who work at a computer for several hours each day are more likely to suffer from dry eye condition.
Dry eye therapy will depend on the cause of your condition. To determine this you will need to see an eye doctor to get an eye exam and diagnosis for dry eye. For individuals who are unable to produce enough tears, eye drops may be a suitable form of dry eye therapy. If you have dry eye condition because you use too many digital screens throughout the day, your eye doctor may prescribe a special lens to filter blue light. You may also suffer from blocked tear ducts, or ducts that need plugged, which is a type of therapy offered by your San Antonio eye doctor.
