You look at your red eyes in the mirror and you think, “I must be tired.” Or you chalk it up to the amount of time you’ve stared at a screen. “Did I even blink today?” you joke. But the next day, your eyes are still irritated; red, itchy, sore, achy, or sensitive to light.

It’s not you. It’s Dry Eye syndrome, and we can help.

Dry eye syndrome – also known as keratitis sicca, keratoconjunctivitis sicca, and dysfunctional tear syndrome – can stem from computer use, contact lenses, menopause, or air quality. It can also be caused by airplane travel, medical conditions, allergies, mask wearing, and even LASIK.

Dry Eye is a common disease affecting vision quality and eye comfort. Symptoms of Dry Eye can vary widely from patient to patient. People with Dry Eye may experience one or more of the following symptoms: 

  • Dry, gritty, or itchy sensation 
  • Stinging 
  • Irritation 
  • Light sensitivity 
  • Visual fluctuation 
  • Watery eyes
