Dry Eye Treatment for San Marcos and Escondido
The eyes are primarily lubricated by tears produced by tear glands located in your upper eyelids. Natural tears make your eyes feel cool, comfortable, refreshed and help prevent infection of your eye and eyelids.
Health conditions, the environment and the aging process may affect the tear producing glands. As a result, the amount and quality of tears can be altered, creating an unhealthy tear film for the eye surface. Symptoms of dry, red, itchy, burning, watery eyes, and irritation are the most common medical reasons people visit their eye doctor.
Dry eye suffers in the Escondido area can use eye drops bases on specific symptom levels and the time of the day they need relief. In addition to regular use for dry eye, drops can be used to alleviate dryness related to contact lens wear and dryness following eye surgery. In addition to these artificial tears, prescription eye drops and nutritional supplements are extremely effective in reducing patient symptoms.
