Dry eye syndrome occurs when your eyes either don’t produce enough tears or the tears evaporate too quickly. This can result in a range of symptoms, including: 

  • Blurry vision 
  • Itchiness or irritation 
  • Sensitivity to light 
  • Grittiness or feeling like something is in your eye 

It’s essential to recognize that while occasional dryness may be relieved with over-the-counter drops, persistent symptoms could indicate a more serious underlying condition. Ignoring dry eye symptoms can lead to vision problems over time. 

At Pacific Eye Institute, we prioritize accurate diagnosis and tailored treatment plans for each patient. Our specialists utilize advanced diagnostic tools to determine the root cause of your dry eye. From there, we offer a comprehensive range of treatments, including: 

  • Prescription eye drops 
  • Punctal plugs to conserve tears 
  • LipiFlow treatment to address Meibomian gland dysfunction 
  • Lifestyle changes and nutritional supplements
