Dry eye syndrome occurs when your eyes does not produce enough tears. As a result this can be problematic and cause changes in vision as well as inflammation or pain to the anterior surface of your eyes. Dry eyes can develop due to varying factors such as age, medications, systemic conditions, and/or environmental conditions. If you are experiencing dry eyes, we recommend an ocular health assessment focusing on the anterior segment of your eyes. Our doctors will examine the tear film along with the ocular surface to determine the cause and appropriate treatment for your condition.
