Understanding Dry Eye Syndrome

If you suffer from dry eyes, you’re certainly not alone. About twelve percent of Americans suffer from dry eyes and seek treatment to improve their condition. Most doctors suggest that one of the most effective ways to treat your dry eyes is with a moisturizing and lubricating eye drop or tear replacement. It should be a high-quality product that can be used about four times per day.

As the video points out, some people are more likely than others to suffer from dry eyes. Women, the elderly, and those who live in dry, cold, and windy climates are more susceptible to developing dry eyes. People who work long hours in front of a computer screen will likely need tear replacement as well, since this activity can decrease your blinking rate by at least fifty-percent.

If you suffer from dry eyes and are looking for a recommendation for artificial tears or another effective remedy, come speak with Dr. Mark Hornfeld at Vista Laser Vision in New York City. To find out more about our services or to set up an appointment, call us today at (212) 580-8881.
