Dry Eye

People with dry eyes suffer from a range of symptoms, ranging from mild fluctuating discomfort, to constant scratching irritated eyes. It is now known that mild inflammation is a large contributing factor for all dry eyes. The causes of dry eyes are varied and include certain medical conditions, medication use, over-use of certain ‘over-the-counter’ eye drops, environmental causes and individual factors. Our doctors employ a step-wise approach to managing dry eye symptoms.

Symptoms Include:

  • Burning / stinging / gritty / foreign body sensations
  • Mild itching
  • Sensitivity to light, wind, or cold conditions
  • Tearing of watering of the eyes
  • Redness

Management Options:

  • Artificial tears or gels
  • Warm compresses
  • Anti-inflammatory topical eye drops
  • Punctal plugs

Many cases involving dry eyes can be billed through BC Medical Services Plan. Make an appointment today if your eyes are bothering you. You don’t have to suffer!
