Annual eye exams are very important to the health of your eyes as well as your vision. Many people often forget about their eye health and may also believe that an eye exam is only necessary if you have an obvious vision problem. A routine eye exam can help determine whether you have any early signs of an eye disease as well. Here at North Country Optical we can provide you with the Plattsburgh eye care that you need, even if you have an eye condition like dry eye syndrome.
Dry eye syndrome is a fairly common condition. Symptoms of dry eye can include an increased sensitivity to light, the feeling of foreign body sensation, redness or pain in the eye, as well as blurred vision. These symptoms occur because the tear duct cannot produce proper tears and therefore cannot sufficiently lubricate the surface of the eye. If the eye is not properly lubricated, then it can become irritated much more easily and can even cause the eye injury. Some injuries may include corneal ulcers or abrasions which can directly affect your vision, sometimes permanently, and even create infection. The eye also becomes far more prone to inflammation and infection, leading to other serious eye conditions. If dry eye syndrome is left undiagnosed or untreated, it can lead to many serious problems. It’s important to have an annual eye exam and here with our us at North Country Optical you can get the proper Plattsburgh eye care that you need to identify and treat dry eye syndrome.
If you experience any of the symptoms above, it is imperative that you seek the medical attention of an eye doctor as soon as you can. Our eye doctor here at North Country Optical can provide you with a complete eye exam and will then be able to provide you with the treatment that you need. Dry eye syndrome can be treated with the use of antibiotics to reduce redness and inflammation, prescription eye drops to reduce corneal inflammation or prescription eye inserts that work like artificial tears. If you are seeking comprehensive Plattsburgh eye care including treatment for dry eyes, we can help you here at North Country Optical today.
