A lack of tears or low-quality tears marks the condition known as dry eye. We all experience dry eyes occasionally, but consistently lacking moisture is a medical condition. Eyes need tears to lubricate their surface and protect eyesight. If you have dry eyes, an Elkton or Clarksville optometrist can help you understand why and prescribe a suitable treatment.
Determining the cause of dry eye will help our optometrist choose the right treatment option for each patient. There are five main reasons individuals develop dry eyes which include:
In addition, sometimes the long-term use of contact lenses or certain eye surgeries can also lead to dry eye. By understanding what causes your dry eyes, we can help you find a suitable treatment.
If you think you might have dry eye, we encourage you to preserve your eyesight by scheduling an appointment with a Clarksville or Elkton eye doctor right away. Contact us at (931) 647-5237 or (270) 265-9036. We look forward to seeing you!
