Are Your Dry Eyes Putting You at Risk?
More often than not, we lean towards the habit of neglecting early warnings and signs, as mere common occurrences. Also, when experiencing eye irritation that mimics the sensation of sand in the eye, we may see ourselves scrambling to find the nearest over-the-counter eye drops for temporary soothing. We may even write off burning, itching, and redness as mere eye fatigue.
However, when regularly undergoing the aforementioned experiences, we may be suffering from Dry Eye disease. This condition is coined one of the most common yet under-diagnosed ophthalmologic disorders. Even the mildest reduction of tear production may lead to the continuous sensation of having several lashes in the eye. What is worse, Dry Eye disease can tremendously impede our overall quality of life, and often lead to or worsen unbearable anxiety. Left untreated Dry Eye may lead to inflammation, corneal abrasion, ulcers, and even vision loss. In addition to reduced quality of life, it can become nearly impossible to complete routine tasks, read, drive or even concentrate due in part to light sensitivity, blurred vision, and chronic eye fatigue. Thankfully, there are now Dry Eye treatments, like Blephex and Intense Pulse Light technology, that can offer a more permanent solution and reversal of this condition.
