Eye care professionals specialize in understanding how the human eye really works, as well as diseases and conditions that affect your vision - many of which do not have obvious symptoms. Eye doctors know how age and risk factors affect vision over time for young and old, and they understand the benefits and features of corrective lenses including eyeglasses and contacts.
Our optometrists take the time to explain the results of your eye exam, describe your options and listen to your eye care needs. Because maintaining good eye health is an ongoing partnership, we encourage you to ask questions and share your health information, which could be vital to monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision problems.
Q: I have a friend in whose eyes are frequently overly watery. That isn't Dry Eye, is it?
A: Actually, dry eye disease will often cause the eyes to water in many patients. This is known as reflex tearing and will often happen when the eyes become irritated and uncomfortable. Think of it as the body's attempt to fix the problem. Breaking the cycle of dry eye disease will help alleviate these symptoms.
