Dry Eye Syndrome Treatment

In order to maintain the overall health of your eyes, you need to have a healthy film of tears. This film helps to keep your eyes moistened, clean, and functioning properly. If your tear glands are not creating enough of a tear film or are not producing the quality of tears your body needs, you may experience the symptoms of dry eye syndrome.

Experiencing the symptoms of dry eye syndrome may include your eyes feeling dry or burning, but dry eye syndrome can also cause constant tearing. If you are in the Dallas area and are experiencing dry eye syndrome, our team at Brooks Eye Associates can help. Contact us to today by calling (972) 737-1181.

Symptoms of Dry Eye Syndrome

When your eyes are producing the right quality or quantity or tears, this can affect all three parts of the tear film. These layers keep your eyes moist, clean, and lubricated and all three of them need to be functioning properly for good eye sight. If these are disrupted, you may experience the following symptoms:

  • Feeling like something is in your eye
  • Scratchy eyes
  • Burning in the eyes
  • Difficulties wearing your contacts
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Blurred vision
  • Sore eyes
  • Excessive irritation to allergens, smoke, air conditioning, or circulated air

While dry eye syndrome may be a very uncomfortable condition to have, it is very treatable and is the most common problem that our team treats.

Dry Eye Syndrome Treatment

There are many effective ways to treat dry eye syndrome and ensure that it doesn’t turn into something more serious. If you’re simply experiencing a feeling of dryness, our experienced leader, Dr. Brooks, may simply prescribe eye drops or eye lubricants. These can help moisten your eyes and even out your tear film.

If you’re experiencing constant tearing that causes your tears to evaporate so quickly that you have dry eye syndrome, Dr. Brooks may want to use tear duct plugs in order to stop the excessive tearing.

Tear duct plugs (punctal plugs) can be dissolvable or semi-permanent depending on the severity of your dry eye syndrome symptoms.

Dr. Brooks and our team have the experience you can trust when treating dry eye syndrome and are here to help. If you’re in Dallas or Plano, Texas and are experiencing dry eye syndrome symptoms, please contact Brooks Eye Associates today. You can call us at (972) 737-1181.
