July is Dry Eye Disease Awareness Month
The symptoms of dry eye disease include stinging, burning, a scratchy sensation, sensitivity to light, tearing, tired eyes, difficulty wearing contact lenses, and blurred vision, often worsening at the end of the day or after focusing for a prolonged period on a nearby task.
It used to be more difficult and time-consuming to diagnose dry eye disease. Now, with a new test from TearLab®, it can be done painlessly in one visit.
If your eyes are dry, you may suffer more than just discomfort. Reduced tear production over a long period of time increases the risk of permanent damage and scarring to the front of the eye.
If your dry eyes are bothering you, make an appointment today.
