What You Can Do To Help Treat Dry Eyes

If you suffer from dry eye, you are likely looking for some relief from the pain, burning, and itching. You may have found that you aren't able to see as well, interfering with your daily activities. At Eye-Site in Boynton Beach, FL, we have been diagnosing and treating dry eye syndrome for many years. If you are suffering from dry eye, read on to learn about measures you can take at home to ease your symptoms.

Humidifiers

Humidifiers can be a great way to ease the symptoms of dry eye. If your eyes are too dry, adding moisture to the air can help. Run a couple of humidifiers in the home in the places that you normally spend time. This will prevent your tear film from quickly evaporating. When the tear film on the front of the eyes evaporates too quickly, it leaves behind too little moisture to keep the eyes comfortably lubricated.

Eye Drops

Many eyes drops on the market can help with dry eye, including many that are available over the counter. When you see our optometrist, you will be told what kinds of eye drops you need. Eye drops add moisture directly to the front of the eye so that the eyes are more comfortable. There are also medicated eye drops that reduce inflammation while also restoring moisture.
