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. We also include 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.
Eye dryness is often poorly understood and treated with only the temporary solution of artificial tears. Not all artificial tears are the same nor are all dry eye symptoms caused by the same underlying issue. At Golden Vision, we offer specialized testing and quality products for routine ocular hygiene maintenance to relieve a variety of chronic dry eye conditions. We believe in individually tailored, comprehensive treatment for successful dry eye relief, which can include education about lifestyles and behaviors that may cause or prevent your symptoms. Some harmful activities include smoking cigarettes or spending too much time at your computer. If left untreated, dry eyes become chronic and often leave permanent damage to the oil glands which produce our natural tears.

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, which can leave you at risk for eye infections.
Dry eye is chronic and multifactorial, meaning there are many different causes that slowly add up to cause issues. Much like plaque and cavities with our teeth, if we do not do routine home cleaning and lifestyle adjustments, the condition will build up. Our goal at Golden Vision is to educate and empower you to have a stronger baseline ocular health to comfortably do any activity of daily living.
