Are your eyes regularly dry and itchy? If so we understand just how frustrating this can be. However, did you know that dry and itchy eyes can be a sign of more serious eye conditions? What is even scarier is treating these more serious conditions with over the counter (OTC) eye drops can allow these conditions to get worse? Only a fully qualified optometrist can truly help you determine what is causing your dry and itchy eyes and help you selection a treatment option that is comprehensive to all the factors that may be causing your discomfort. Do you suffer from dry eye or computer vision Syndrome (CVS)? Not sure, here are the most common symptoms:

  • Burning in the eye
  • Light sensitivity
  • Eye fatigue/ tired eyes
  • Gritty or sandy feeling of your eyes
  • Do you blink more frequently than normal?
  • Tearing of the eyes
  • Intermittent blurry vision
  • Redness of the eyes

If you are experiencing any or all of these symptoms you may be suffering from Dry Eye Syndrome or Computer Vision Syndrome. While OTC drops may provide temporary relief, these drops may not be the best way to treat these medical conditions. Furthermore, you may be masking more serious eye issues that need qualified medical care, not OTC eye drops.
