Exceptionally Qualified to Diagnose & Treat Dry Eye
Tears protect the eyes and keep them lubricated. They help wash away irritants and foreign objects, which helps reduce the risk of infection in the eye. Most people go to see eye specialists after they start suffering from symptoms related to eye irritation, but most do not know it could be the recurring condition known as Keratitis Sicca, otherwise known as dry eye.
Dry eye disease becomes a problem for most people because their eyes don’t produce enough tears, or their eyes provide a poor quality of tears.

Suffering from Dry Eyes?
Continually suffering from dry eyes? Contact your eye specialists for proper dry eye treatment if you notice any of the following persisting conditions:
- Blurry vision
- Light sensitivity
- Excessive tearing/watery eyes
- Tired eyes/eye fatigue
- Stringy mucus in or around the eyes
- Foreign body sensation
- Contact lens discomfort
- Scratchy, feeling of sand or grit in the eye
A simple analysis of your tears is all one of our eye specialists needs to indicate the osmolarity (saltiness) of your tear. During this stage, we can evaluate any imbalances in your tears. These imbalances have the potential to cause damage to the cells on the surface of your eyes. After we analyze your tear composition, we can determine the cause of your issue, so our staff can treat it uniquely.
