Eye dryness can often be solved with hydrating eye drops, but in severe cases, it needs to be addressed in a clinical setting. At Golden Vision, we offer specialized eye drops for chronic dryness and irritation, including as well as education about lifestyles and behaviors that may cause or prevent eye dryness. Harmful activities include smoking cigarettes or spending too much time at your computer. Proper eye hygiene practices and certain medications may improve the moisture level of your eyes.

Symptoms are what you feel. They can range from nothing to redness, watery eyes, burning, grittiness, light sensitivity, and/or fluctuating vision. Signs are what the doctor sees during examination. These can include clogged or missing oil glands, bacterial build up on eyelashes, and dry spots on the cornea (the outer and most sensitive layer of the eyes).
Symptoms and signs do not always match. Oftentimes you are not very symptomatic at the beginning when a doctor starts noticing the signs. This stage is when the condition is most easily resolved. By the time you are uncomfortable and symptomatic, the condition is often more chronic and complicated to treat. At severe stages, the corneal sensitivity and oil glands may be so damaged that you do not feel pain but the eyes are constantly red, swollen, and dry, leaving you at risk for eye infections
