April is Dry Eye Awareness Month

Dry Eye

Dry eyes occur when your tears aren’t able to provide adequate moisture for your eyes. Tears can be inadequate for many reasons.

Dry eyes can be very uncomfortable. If you have dry eyes, your eyes may sting, burn, get red and even tear. You may experience dry eyes in certain situations, such as on an airplane, in an air-conditioned room, while reading, or after looking at a computer screen for a few hours. This problem can be exacerbated by use of a ceiling fan.

Dry eyes treatments may make you more comfortable. Treatments include lifestyle changes (i.e. turning off ceiling fans) and artificial tear eye drops or Restasis®. In some cases, plugging the tear ducts with punctal plugs may be beneficial.
