 Why do people suffer from dry eyes

Dry eye is due to an unstable or deficient tear film. There are many causes that affect the tear film, such as autoimmune diseases, surgery, rosacea, medications, hormonal change and many other reasons. To effectively treat dry eyes, correct diagnosis is essential. At the Windsor Dry Eye Centre, we begin with identifying the cause of your dry eyes.

Why do we need to treat dry eyes

Dry eye diseases can cause a myriad of symptoms, such as burning, grittiness, pressure sensation, itchiness, red eyes, reflex tearing, light sensitivity, blurred vision and potentially sight threatening.  If left untreated, it can cause permanent scarring on the surface of the eye.  These symptoms affect the quality of life and productivity.

How are dry eyes treated

The best treatment for dry eyes is to target the cause of dry eyes.  Depending on the cause of dry eyes, the treatment may range from home remedies to in office treatment such as Intense Pulsed Light Therapy.  Medications may also range from over the counter artificial tears to serum tears (tears made from your own blood).  At the Windsor Dry Eye Centre, your treatment plan is tailored to your condition.
