Dry Eyes

Dry eye syndrome is a common and often chronic condition characterized by an inadequate quantity or quality of tears to keep the eye’s surface properly lubricated. Left unmanaged, it can lead to discomfort, blurred vision, and even damage to the cornea. An ophthalmologist can diagnose the severity of dry eyes and tailor treatments accordingly. These treatments include lifestyle modifications, artificial tear solutions, prescription medications, or more advanced therapies like punctal plugs.
