Whether mild, moderate, or severe, dry eye syndrome can be disabling. Feelings of “heavy” eyes, difficulty keeping the eyes open, and watery eyes are all common symptoms. Burning, stinging sensations while reading, or vision that becomes blurry while doing visual tasks are also symptoms related to dry eye syndrome. “Get the red out” eye drops should never be used for dry eye, as they can make things worse. Artificial tears can work temporarily to alleviate dry symptoms. A structured approach with a treatment tailored to an individual’s specific type of dry eye syndrome is the most effective means of therapy. Baltimore Eye Physicians has its own Dry Eye Clinic specifically designed to accurately diagnose and treat this prevalent condition.
