Dry Eye Treatment in Las Vegas

View Video

Dry eye syndrome is pretty common eye condition. The good news is our Las Vegas optometrist can help diagnose dry eye and suggest possible treatment options. If you have dry eye, you will want to get it cleared up as soon as possible. Without treatment, dry eye syndrome potentially can damage your eyes, and lead to things like corneal ulcers and scarring, and even blindness. Don't take a chance with your good vision and visit our Las Vegas eye doctor for an evaluation and treatment for dry eye as soon as possible.

Our Las Vegas Optometrist Discusses Dry Eye Syndrome

Dry eye syndrome is a relatively common disorder but is important to get it checked out by an eye doctor. People with dry eye don't produce enough tears to keep your eyes lubricated. Tears contain water, oil, and mucin. Each performs an important function in lubricating your eyes. Water keeps your eyes moist, oil keeps the water from evaporating, and the mucous slides the water evenly over the eyes, so all exposed surfaces are kept lubricated. A deficiency in any of these components can lead to dry eye, as well.

Symptoms of Dry Eye

Some of the most common symptoms of dry eye include:

  • Irritation on the eyes
  • Burning or scratching pain on the eyes
  • Blurry vision
  • Excessive tearing, which is the way the eyes overcompensate for the dryness

People sometimes mistake dry eye for allergies, because the symptoms are quite similar. If you suspect you may have dry eye or are having any of these symptoms, it is important to go to an eye doctor and get diagnosed and treated right away. Treatment usually consists of lubricating eye drops. Those drops may be over the counter or prescription, depending on your individual presentation of dry eye. If the eye or eyes have been damaged by dry eye, more intensive treatment may be needed, up to and including surgery.

It can be difficult to diagnose dry eye, especially on your own. That is why it is so important to have a qualified and experienced optometrist examine your eyes and make the diagnosis for you. An eye doctor who is experienced in treating dry eye will know just what to look for to make the correct diagnosis and give you the best treatment for your eyes. With a good doctor, you can enjoy the healing you deserve.
