Dry Eye Syndrome is a very common condition that causes itching, burning, and/or an inflamed sensation in the eyes. There are a variety of causes for Dry Eye Syndrome, including dusty or windy environments, pollutants such as cigarette smoke, excessive use of contact lenses, the natural process of aging, and even the use of certain medications. These factors can contribute to a decrease in the amount of tears that are created to keep the eyes lubricated.

At New Eyes, our eye care specialists offer medicinal eye drops that can be very effective at reducing the symptoms of dry eye syndrome. There are also more invasive procedures, such as punctal occlusion, which can allow for a more regulated production of tears to keep the eyes moist.
