If you suffer from any of the symptoms that may indicate you have dry eyes, it makes sense to consult with our eye doctor, Romy Park, OD. Treatment for this condition is simple, effective, and non-invasive in most cases, leading to relief.
Your dry eyes may have resulted from a physical problem in which your eyes are not creating enough tears to keep your eyes moist, or the quality of those tears is not up to the job. Your tears are made up of water, fatty oils, and mucus. Even a minor deviation in the percentages of each might end up causing difficulties. There are also some conditions and prescription medication that are associated with Las Vegas dry eyes. And then there the environmental factors. Exposure to smoke and wind, or dry air can either result in your eyes becoming dry or can make a situation that already exists even worse. So what can be done about it? Bring your Las Vegas dry eyes to our office, where you will be examined and possibly have testing done to determine the amount of tears you’re producing, and what the quality of them is. Ultimately, though, the most common way of dealing with the issue is by applying a type of eye drops called artificial tears. You can get them at your local drug store, right off the shelf. In more severe cases, something stronger could be necessary. For those times, our eye doctor will prescribe an even more effective version of artificial tears. Surgery is a possibility, but only if other methods are unsuccessful in achieving the necessary outcome.
For burning, stinging sensation in your eyes, eye discomfort or pain, sensitivity to light, and other signs of Las Vegas dry eyes, just contact our office and we will have you seen by our eye doctor.
