Dry eyes are one of the most common, yet frustrating eye disorders to deal with. Dry eyes can at best be a minor annoyance and at worse create dangerous situations where you cannot see. Instead of dealing with dry eyes on your own, there is help available at Manufacturer Direct Eyewear in Deerfield Beach, FL. Our optician will determine the cause of your dry eyes and develop a treatment plan that is right for you.
What Causes Dry Eyes?
We have all suffered from dry eyes at one point or another. Dry eyes are a common part of:
- Seasonal allergies
- Environmental factors such as dry conditions and wind
- An inability to produce tears
- Reactions to certain medications
- Medical conditions such as lupus, vitamin A deficiency, and rheumatoid arthritis
These are all common causes of dry eyes and it can be difficult to determine which of these your eye doctor will need to treat to relieve your dry eyes.
When To See an Optician
Although many people might struggle temporarily with dry eyes, if your dry eyes are beginning to interfere with your life, it is time to seek help. Dry eyes can also be accompanied by more serious symptoms which can affect your quality of life. These symptoms include:
- Red eyes
- Constantly itchy eyes
- Stinging in the eyes
- Burning sensation
- Feeling as if there is a foreign body in the eye
If you are experiencing these symptoms as well, it is best to visit an eye doctor for help.
How Our Optician can Help
Our optician will determine the cause of your dry eyes and provide medication such as eye drops or medication that produces more tears. If you have a separate eye disorder, such as myopia or astigmatism, our eye doctor will help you choose the right pair of eyeglasses or contacts that can help even with your dry eyes. These contact lenses include gas permeable lenses and scleral lenses.
