Say Goodbye to Dry Eye

Dry eye syndrome is being diagnosed more than ever in this digital age. At 2020 EyeCare, we focus on addressing the underlying causes of your dry eyes rather than simply treating your symptoms. 

Our dry eye therapies all have the same primary objective‒relieving your eyes of irritation and burning. Chronic dry eye syndrome can indicate more serious eye conditions, so we encourage you to visit our practice when symptoms are present.

Dry Eye Causes & Symptoms

Dry eye occurs when your eyes are under-lubricated with insufficient tears. Some factors include:

Dry eye syndrome can be recognized by several signs of severe eye discomfort. When left untreated they can become chronic symptoms.

  • Blurred vision
  • Burning or itchy eyes
  • Eye fatigue
  • Watery or teary eyes
  • Eye & eyelid redness
  • Puffy or swollen eyes
  • Eye pain

A Path to Relaxation

Today’s world makes it very hard to step away from our smartphones and laptops, but that doesn’t mean you need to settle on having dry eyes. 2020 EyeCare provides a variety of dry eye treatments that can address the different root causes of your condition.

Comprehensive exams with our doctors can provide an understanding of the root of your dry eye, and help in choosing a direction for recovery. Sometimes we must go beyond over-the-counter artificial tears.

Your eyes need a great amount of hydration to function properly. Healthy, plentiful tears are the main source of this hydration. When your body has problems creating its own tears, we may recommend medicated prescription eye drops. Restasis and Xiidra are 2 brands we trust.

Excessive tear drainage can also contribute to dry eye syndrome. The puncta are small openings in your eyelid that drain excess tears. But if they drain too quickly, we have a problem. Punctal plugs may be inserted in your tear ducts to preserve your natural tears. This procedure is generally painless and reversible, and can help retain moisture in your eyes.

It’s a very progressive method, but using ingredients of your own blood can help treat dry eye syndrome. Clear blood substances removed of proteins can be added to artificial tears, known as serum tears. Some patients experience a relief of dry eye symptoms in the eye when administering these types of drops.

Gently applying regulated heat to the outside of the eyes and eyelids can relieve symptoms of chronic dry eye syndrome. This is best used as a complementary practice with other treatments. Our eye care professionals have the tools and techniques to soothe your eyes with this method.

Maybe It’s the Contact Lenses

The contact lenses you are currently wearing may not be the perfect match for your eyes. Contacts that restrict oxygen flow or rub against the cornea can be perpetually irritating and may lead to dry eye symptoms.

2020 EyeCare offers comprehensive scleral lens options in Southwest Ohio. We are experts in this alternative contact lens that vaults over the cornea and uses therapeutic fluid to relax the eye. If you experience dry eyes, it’s worth asking about scleral lenses!
