Dry eye is a pathologic condition. Corneal and conjuctival dryness due to deficient tear production, predominantly in menopausal and post-menopausal women. Can cause foreign body sensation, burning eyes, filamentary keratitis, and erosion of conjuctival and corneal epithelium.
At Visione 360, we utilize the Tear Lab Tear Osmolarity Testing system to accurately record and monitor tear production. Dry eye is a syndrome, and must be monitored and treated effectively to avoid the risk of permanent corneal surface damage. Treatment options range from over the counter eye drop options to the insertion of plugs in the lacrimal duct. As a certified Dry Eye Center of Excellence, we can help you on your path to comfort and relief from dry eye syndrome.
If you are experiencing the following signs and symptoms you should seek treatment for dry eye.
Stinging, burning, scratchy sensation, sensitivity to light, tearing, tired eyes, and difficulty wearing contact lenses, as well as Blurred vision, often worsening at the end of the day or after visually focusing for a prolonged period on a nearby task.
Also called allergic conjunctivitis or ocular allergy, eye allergy occurs when something you are allergic to irritates the conjunctiva. This is the delicate membrane covering the eye and the inside of the eyelid.
