Dry Eye Treatment
Dry eye syndrome (DES) is a disease of the tears and ocular surface that results in symptoms of discomfort, visual disturbance, and tear ﬁlm instability with potential damage to the cornea. Many people mistake dry eye symptoms for allergies, climatic conditions or just eyestrain. While all of these may aggravate dry eye symptoms, they are not the cause. Common causes of dry eyes are medications, contact lens wear, disease, hormonal changes, and a low blink rate.
The symptoms of dry eye can be frustrating, painful, and aﬀect your daily life in many ways. They include:
- Red, burning, or itchy eyes
- Eye fatigue or headaches
- Producing more tears than normal at times
- Blurring vision or light sensitivity
Laser assisted in situ keratomileusis, commonly referred to as LASIK, is a corrective alternative to glasses or contact lenses. Like glasses or contact lenses, LASIK is a method for treating refractive conditions including nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), and astigmatism. At eyecare concepts Clayton, our doctors provide pre- and post-operative exams for LASIK and other eye procedures. Call (919) 553-8181 today to schedule an examination to see whether you are a candidate for LASIK.
