Dry Eyes
 

While dry eyes may seem like a minor inconvenience, anyone who is forced to deal with it on a continuous bases will tell you that frequently dealing with dry eyes can become more then just a nuisance. Not only do dry eyes create a constant distraction and irritation, the effects of the dryness and the rubbing that becomes inevitable can leave you at a higher risk for eye infections and an eye disease called keratoconus. Therefore,  it is wise to take action to alleviate your dry eyes.

The causes of dry eyes vary and it can sometimes be difficult to determine the source of the problem. Typically allergies or sensitivities to pollens, pet dander, dust mites, or the perfumes and scents used in many products are the culprits. One way to determine the cause of dry eyes is to reduce or eliminate potential allergens and take careful note of what triggers the symptoms. While there are many over the counter medications and eye drops that can be used to combat dry eyes, Dr. Dunn will be able to provide you with a personalized approach to your problem and offer an individualized solution.  New homeopathic eye drops can help your eyes to not react to allergens that you encounter.  Also, oral drops are now available specifically designed to reduce your bodies reaction to allergens found in your particular part of the country.  Contact Dr. Dunn for additional information.
