Dry eye syndrome is a growing epidemic that has eye care professionals around the world concerned. Our doctors are dedicated to helping patients who suffer from this very distracting eye problem. Dry eye syndrome is similar to what it sounds like, but constitutes a lack of lubrication or moisture in the eyes related to the tear film and production of natural tears. This syndrome can be caused by a wide variety of factors including the natural aging process, over-the-counter cold medicines, contact lens wear and environmental factors.
If you suffer from a scratchy, dry or a burning sensation you may be experiencing dry eye. If you think you might have this problem you should come into our office for a visit with Dr. Tsai or Dr. Kim. At your visit we will conduct several tests to determine the severity of the dryness.
