Dry eyes is a condition that is just as it sounds: due to one or a number of possible factors, including age, gender, medications, preexisting and environmental conditions, the tears your body produces are not sufficient to lubricate and nourish the eye. Tears are not just for crying, and any one of our San Antonio eye doctors will tell you they are at work every time you blink to wash over the eye, getting rid of any foreign bodies that may have gotten stuck there, reduce the risk of eye infection. If your tear ducts can’t produce enough tears or the right kind of tears, you may end up with dry eyes.

If you find yourself rubbing your eyes, or if you have occasional blurred vision or light sensitivity, puffiness or redness, you should notify one of our San Antonio eye doctors and get treatment. Our staff at The Eyeglass Shop will probably be able to diagnose your dry eyes just by listening to your complaints, but might also ask to examine your eyes up close. He or she will inspect the front of the eyes using a special microscope to determine the thickness of the tear layer, how fast your tears disintegrate, and if your cornea (outer layer of the eye) has become damaged or dried.

If you indeed do have dry eyes, don’t worry! There are plenty of ways to hep alleviate the discomfort you feel. Our optometrists might recommend using a humidifier at home to moisturize the air, use hot compresses on the eyes, and then also using artificial tears and lubricating eye drops that can be purchased over the counter and used as necessary. We at The Eyeglass Shop know just how annoying dry eyes can be. You shouldn’t have to deal with them, and you won’t need to. Just talk to our San Antonio eye doctors, they’ll tell you the same.

Unfortunately, problems with the health of your eyes rarely involve easily noticeable symptoms. That’s why comprehensive eye exams are so important. They involve several simple techniques and procedures designed to assess the quality of your vision and detect potential problems. A refraction test, a common procedure conducted during eye exams, will determine whether you are in need of prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses.
