Managing Dry Eyes

Dry eyes can be irritating and even affect our vision but we can take steps to ward them off and that may mean applying the necessary lifestyle adjustments. Unfortunately, the type of lifestyle adjustments you need to make depending on the cause of your dry eye. The good news is that our optometrist can help you better understand your dry eye symptoms and their causes. Once we understand what is causing your condition, we put together a treatment plan to help you get relief.

Lifestyle Tips

Here are some ways you may be able to better avoid dry eyes:

●          Avoid smoke and smokey areas.

●          Cut back on your screen time and take more frequent breaks when using your mobile device.

●          Hydrate, then hydrate some more.

●          If you have dry air in your home or use electric heat, then it might be a good idea to invest in a good dehumidifier.
