What is 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. 

What Are the Signs and Symptoms of Dry Eye?

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. 

How Is Dry Eye Naturally Treated? 

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. 

How Can an Optometrist Help to Prevent, Manage and Treat 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.
