Dry Eye Syndrome

Dry Eye Syndrome

Dry eye syndrome can cause uncomfortable symptoms like itching or swelling and significantly affect your vision. At Riviera Opticare in Mesa and Scottsdale, AZ, we provide comprehensive eye exams to accurately diagnose dry eye syndrome and treatment to relieve any discomfort. Before visiting us, we invite you to keep reading to learn more about this condition below!

Understanding Dry Eye Syndrome

Dry eye syndrome occurs when your eyes don’t produce enough tears to keep the eyes lubricated. As a result, you may experience tearing, stinging, and blurry vision. If the condition is not treated on time, it can cause infections and damage the cornea.

Causes of Dry Eye Syndrome

Dry eye can be caused by a variety of factors, including illnesses, hormonal changes that come with aging, and excessive screen use. People who live in dry environments may also experience the condition more often than those in more humid climates. The main cause of dry eye, however, is not producing enough quality tears to keep your eyes lubricated.

An Eye Exam Can Help with a Diagnosis and Treatment

If you have any symptoms of dry eye, we recommend visiting our optometrists for an eye exam. Once we determine the root cause of your discomfort, we can suggest medications, devices, or procedures that will help you feel better. We’ll also discuss some lifestyle modifications that can ease your symptoms and preserve your vision.
