Q&A | What is Dry Eye Syndrome

Dry eye has a lot of causes, and each person’s dry eye is unique. Prevent dry eye and dehydration by drinking 8 to 10 glasses of water per day. Some nutritional supplements, such as fish oil and flax seed oil, can contribute to a more stable tear layer.

Remember to blink regularly and take breaks often when on a computer, cell phone or television. During drier seasons, a humidifier might be helpful to provide more moisture in the air.

Our Patients Say it Best

I will most definitely be returning

My first appointment was today and I will most definitely be returning and suggesting this place to everyone that needs an eye Dr. Staff were nice and very informed. The Dr actually cared about the health of my eyes and if I had the correct prescription and fit for my contact lenses. He even went the extra mile to special order my prescription so I have the absolute best sight with my contacts. I have worn glasses and contacts my whole life, and this place by far had the best service I have ever received. Thank you so much!
