Exploring Dry Eye Syndrome
Dry eye syndrome occurs when your eyes do not produce enough tears to stay hydrated or something is wrong with the tear production process. This lack of tear production and hydration can lead to eye inflammation and ultimately damage your cornea.
Common signs and symptoms of dry eye syndrome may include:
- Blurry vision
- Watery eyes
- Light sensitivity
- A stinging, scratching, or burning feeling
Meibomian gland dysfunction can occur when the glands that produce an oily layer of your tears become inflamed and clogged.
Dry Eye Diagnosis
Your environment and other risk factors can increase the chances of dry eye syndrome developing. Some risk factors for dry eyes can include:
- Exposure to the wind or dry air
- Long-term contact lens wear
- Staring at a digital screen for an extended amount of time
Dry eye syndrome can be caused by a number of different factors. At Sokol Advanced EyeCare, we use various methods to diagnose and treat dry eye syndrome.
Tear Film Analysis
Tear film instability plays a big part in dry eye syndrome. Rapid evaporation of tears and tear film breakup can lead to a flaring up of dry eyes.
Tear film analysis is a diagnostic test we use to evaluate tear film stability to help our team prepare your personalized treatment plan.
Meibography is a specialized imaging test that visualizes the meibomian glands, allowing our team to evaluate their structure and determine the cause of your dry eyes.
Meibomian gland dysfunction is a common cause of dry eye syndrome, and meibography allows our team to diagnose and evaluate meibomian gland dysfunction.
