July is Dry Eye Disease Awareness Month

Also known as dry eye syndrome, this common disorder affects tens of millions of people in the U.S. Symptoms can include itching, burning, redness or a foggy sensation.

Our eyes are the only organs exposed to the outside, and it’s important to take care of them. They produce oily tears which shield sensitive tissues, and production can decrease due to age or the use of certain medications. This reduces the ability of the tears to protect the eyes.

Dry eye syndrome can also be a symptom of other disorders, so if you are experiencing symptoms you should certainly see your eye care provider for a comprehensive eye examination.

Treatment for dry eyes can include eye drops and/or supplements. Consult your eye care provider during your eye examination for more complete information.
