Allergies & Dry Eyes

Dry Eyes

If you’re suffering from dry eyes, you may have symptoms like irritated, gritty, or burning eyes, a feeling of having something in your eyes, excess watering, and blurred vision. Over time, dry eyes can cause damage to the surface of the eye and harm your vision. Many factors can contribute to dry eyes, such as aging, biological sex (women are more vulnerable, especially after menopause), and using certain medications.

There are many treatments for dry eyes. Depending on the cause, we’ll tailor a specific treatment to provide you with relief. Some options include artificial tears, dietary changes, and improving lid hygiene.

In many cases, medical insurance will cover office visits for dry eyes. Contact our office to schedule your dry eye evaluation today.

Allergies

In Texas, allergies can be a big problem and most of the patients we see have some symptoms. The itchiness, redness and tears can put a damper on your everyday life. Treatments may include antihistamines and mast cell stabilizer drops, as well as steroid drops in more severe cases.

If allergies are giving you eye problems, contact our office to schedule an appointment.
