What Is Dry Eye?
Dr. Oleg Lisitsyn and Dr. Diana Ilyasova, along with their optometry team, work with many people suffering from dry eye, a condition characterized by disruption of the normal moisture and tear film on the eye’s surface.
What Are The Symptoms of Dry Eye?
As with most health conditions symptoms of dry eye can vary significantly from person to person. Severity, type, and duration of symptoms can be affected by factors including the underlying cause, time of day, and the individual’s age, overall health, and lifestyle.
Common symptoms of dry eye include:
- Itchy, red, burning eye
- Watery or mucus-like discharge (often an over-compensation for lack of adequate tear production); this may form a dry crust overnight
- The sensation of a foreign object or grittiness in the eye
- Hypersensitivity to light
- Difficulty seeing at night
- Tired eyes
- Blurred vision
