If you suffer from irritated, dry eyes that cause discomfort and the problem persists, you may have a medical condition.
Ophthalmologist Dr. Neda Shamie joins The Doctors explaining that approximately 30 million people across the country suffer from Chronic Dry Eye disease. The symptoms usually involve itching, burning, watering eyes, sensitivity to light, blurry vision, and the feeling like there is something in the eye.
She shares that this condition is usually due to wearing contact lenses, certain medical conditions, one’s environment or possibly the side effect of certain medications. Dr. Shamie notes the problem is more prevalent in people over 50 and in women, especially if they have hormones changes due to pregnancy, taking birth control or menopause. Also, people who eat a diet low in vitamin A or omega-3 fatty acids may also experience the issue.
Dr. Shamie, who has partnered with Allergan, explains that she sees patients who have lived with the condition for years before seeking help. If you believe you might be experiencing discomfort due to Chronic Dry Eye disease, take the dry eye quiz at DryEyeQuiz.com and discuss the results with your eye doctor, as there are treatment options available. For every quiz taken Allergan will donate $1 to Guide Dogs for the Blind.
