Q&A with Dr. Brodsky | All About Dry Eyes

How do I know if I am suffering from Dry Eye?

Dry eye syndrome in its mildest form consists of the vague complaints of burning, watering and fluctuation of vision. It is common to think you need to change eyeglasses when the real solution is to improve your tear quality.

Dry Eye is a condition in which there is an insufficient quantity or quality of tears. Healthy tears are necessary for maintaining the integrity of the ocular surface and for providing comfortable clear vision.

Early detection and aggressive treatment of dry eye syndrome may help prevent corneal degeneration and scarring. The frequency of your follow-up care depends on the severity of the signs and symptoms.

What are treatment options for DES?

There are several different levels of treatment depending upon the severity of your discomfort and condition. The most important factor in treating your dry eye is to consistently stick to your regimen and follow up with our office so we can monitor and improve your tear quality. This will lead to better vision and comfort.

How do I know if I have DES or just Alleriges?

Do you suffer from itchy, stinging, swollen or bloodshot eyes? While a number of causes can be to blame, the two most common reasons for eye irritation are dry eye syndrome and eye allergies. Although the symptoms of these two eye conditions can be similar, there are also clear differences. Only a thorough eye exam by an eye care specialist can diagnose the cause of your eye irritation, which allows effective treatment.

 

What are some tips that will help me cope with DES?

The primary symptom of eye allergies is itchiness. One of the most important tips we tell our patients in Whitehall is not to rub your eyes! Vigorous eye rubbing can spread the allergen and exacerbate your itch.
