WHAT IS Dry Eye Syndrome?
Nearly everyone will experience dry, irritated eyes at some point, but when this feeling lingers for a long time or happens over and over, it could be an indication that you are suffering from dry eye syndrome. This condition is caused by an underproduction of tears or unbalanced tear components, which can result from certain medical conditions, some types of prescription drugs, or environmental factors. Human tears are essential for the general health of the eyes; that's why when they are not present, it can cause severe discomfort and poor vision. At Focal Point Vision in San Antonio, TX, our team of skilled eye doctors effectively diagnose and treat dry eye syndrome.
