DRY EYE TREATMENT
Dry eyes may be due to weak tear production or poor quality of tears which will lead to a patient having dry eyes.
Dry eye is a common ocular issue that can leave a patient with irritated eyes that feel gritty, burning and very uncomfortable. A number of factors can cause dry eyes including but not limited to gender, age, conditions of the environment around you, medical conditions, and certain types of medications.
Your eye doctor in Brampton, BCC Optometry, will analyze your tear film, note how severe the condition is as well as pinpoint the cause of the symptoms. After the analysis is complete, a prescription will be given as to how to treat the condition, hopefully alleviating the symptoms.
