Dry eye syndrome is one of the most common eye conditions. Here at Winchester Optical, many patients come to see an eye doctor due to this condition. Learning what it is, what the signs and symptoms are and how it can be naturally treated can help you to better understand dry eye. Here is what you need to know about dry eye.
Dry eye is a condition in which the eye does not produce enough lubrication to wet or dampen the eye. The end result is a multitude of symptoms that can make your eyes uncomfortable.
There are many signs and symptoms associated with dry eye. Some individuals suffer from one symptom while others suffer from multiple symptoms. Some of the most common symptoms of dry eye include itchy and irritated eyes, red eyes, pain in the eye, blurred vision, light sensitivity, and mucus or junk in and around the eyes.
One of the ways that you can treat dry eye is with natural remedies. Some of these remedies include avoiding smoky spaces, wearing appropriate eye gear in sunny or windy conditions or using a humidifier to add moisture to a room. Supplementing your diet with fatty acids may also help to improve dry eye.
If natural remedies do not work for you, an optometrist, or an eye doctor, can help to treat you. The most common way that they can treat your dry eye is with ointments or symptoms that they can prescribe you.
If you are suffering from dry eye, there are many natural remedies you can use to help ease the symptoms. However, despite your best efforts, you may be unable to naturally treat the symptoms on your own. If you have tried natural remedies and are still suffering from the symptoms of this condition, contact Winchester Optical at (781) 729-4553 for an appointment today.
