Dry Eye Center of Excellence

Dry eye is a pathologic condition. Corneal and conjuctival dryness can be due to deficient tear production, predominantly in menopausal and post-menopausal women. Severe dry eye can cause foreign body sensations, burning eyes, filamentary keratitis, and erosion of conjuctival and corneal epithelium, which can blur or distort vision.  Severy dry eye can also be attributed to inflammatory diseases such as Rheumatoid Arthritis, Sjogrens disease, lupus, and sarcoidosis, amongst other auto immune disorders. 

At Visione 360 and Vision Associates of El Paso, 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, and covering the ocular surface with an amniotic membrane to preserve moisture on the surface and surface repair.  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.

OCULAR ALLERGIES
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.
