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.

"Dr. Maverick saw me after I went to an ER for eye pain. I was told that I had a corneal ulcer and to follow up with an Ophthalmologist. He saw me right away and it luckily it was not an ulcer, but was something else and wearing my contacts made it worse. I am so grateful for him and his staff that got me in right away and made me feel so comfortable. I cannot wait until my ICL procedure coming up soon and to be free from contacts and glasses!!"- E.W. / Healthgrades / Oct 16, 2020

DO I HAVE DRY EYE SYNDROME?
Individuals who have dry eye syndrome commonly deal with blurry vision and red, itchy, stinging eyes, as these are the most common symptoms. To determine if you have the condition, you will attend a consultation with one of our eye doctors.
Dry eye takes many different forms, and nearly 86% of patients with the condition reportedly experience signs of meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD). To treat this specific type of dry eye syndrome, our board-certified ophthalmologists utilize state-of-the-art technology to warm and compress the glands in the eyelids and reduce symptoms.
