Many people suffer from dry eyes. You might have felt the stinging, itching or burning symptoms commonly associated with the condition.
Frequently, people with dry eyes treat their symptoms with eye drops only. However, this is just a bandaid solution which will not treat the root cause of the problem. There are ways to treat and manage dry eye syndrome which can lead to significant improvement in the symptoms.
Proper treatment of Dry Eye Syndrome involves much more than just artificial tears. Eye drops usually relieve your symptoms but this is only temporary.
Without proper treatment, inadequate tears can make daily activities frustrating or, in some cases, debilitating.
Patients find that their personal and professional lives are affected and have difficulty with activities like reading, watching TV, driving and even socialising. With the increased use of digital devices, the prevalence of dry eyes is also increasing.
