Dry Eyes Evaluation

Dry Eyes Evaluation

The tears your eyes normally produce are necessary for overall eye health and clear vision. Dry eye occurs when your eyes do not produce enough tears or produce poor quality tears which do not have the proper chemical composition. The most common signs/symptoms include stinging, itchy, scratchy and uncomfortable eyes; and sometimes a burning feeling or a feeling of something foreign within the eye. You may experience increased dry eye symptoms on awakening. Some people experience an overly wet eye. Extra tearing is a natural reflex to comfort a dry eye and is usually a sign of poor tear quality or composition. Contact Dakota Vision Center for a comprehensive eye examination to determine how to help with your dry eyes.
