Dry eye syndrome happens when your eyes either don’t make enough tears or the tears evaporate too quickly. This can cause a range of symptoms, such as: 

  • Blurry vision 
  • Itchy or irritated eyes 
  • Sensitivity to light 
  • Feeling like there’s something in your eye 

It’s important to understand that while occasional dryness might get better with over-the-counter eye drops, if you have ongoing symptoms, it could be a sign of a more serious problem. Ignoring dry eye symptoms could lead to vision issues down the road. Shaaf Eye Center focuses on accurately diagnosing the problem and creating personalized treatment plans for each patient. Our experts use advanced tools to figure out what’s causing your dry eye. Then, we offer a variety of treatments, including: 

  • Prescription eye drops 
  • Plugs to keep your tears from draining away 
  • Making changes to your lifestyle and taking supplements
