Treatments for Dry Eye

At Scottsdale Eyeology, our optometrists specialize in diagnosing and treating dry eye disease using the latest research and advanced technology.

Dry eye disease is a common condition that occurs when your tears don’t provide sufficient lubrication for your eyes. This can happen for various reasons, such as insufficient tear production or poor-quality tears. Tear instability leads to inflammation and damage to the eye’s surface.

Dry eyes can be uncomfortable, causing stinging or burning sensations. You might experience dry eyes in specific situations, such as on an airplane, in an air-conditioned room, while biking, or after looking at a computer screen for several hours.

Dry Eye Symptoms

Signs and symptoms, typically affecting both eyes, may include:

  • A stinging, burning, or scratchy sensation in your eyes

Dry Eye Causes

Systemic inflammation leads to local inflammation in the eyes. This ocular inflammation causes permanent damage to the oil and water glands, worsening dry eye symptoms and reducing the effectiveness of treatment.
