Can Dry Eyes Permanently Affect Vision?
It will come as no surprise that dry eyes or dry eye syndrome is extremely common in Americans. Some reports suggest that nearly half of the population have experienced some sort of dry eye symptom, with 33 percent of eye care clinic patients complaining about the syndrome. Of course, those who regularly suffer from dry eyes would be forgiven for worrying that it might affect their vision permanently.
In short, dry eyes generally tends to be nothing serious and will usually only make your vision slightly burred – something that will go away on its own or improve when you blink. Despite it not necessarily being anything to worry about, we appreciate just how irritating and frustrating regularly suffering from dry eyes can be. If this sounds familiar, it might be time to consider purchasing a pair of dry eyes syndrome glasses. Read on to find out how a pair of specially-designed glasses could relieve you of dry eyes within minutes.
And remember, dry eyes could be a symptom of a more significant issue, and you should always consult with a doctor first to make sure nothing else serious is going on with your eyes.
What Is Dry Eye Syndrome?
Dry eye syndrome is caused when your tears aren’t able to provide adequate lubrication for your eyes. This might be due to your eyes not producing tears, or your tears might evaporate too quickly.
Symptoms Of Dry Eye Syndrome
Dry eye syndrome can be very irritating and can provoke a number of short-term symptoms for those suffering.
Signs Of Dry Eyes Are:
• A stinging or burning in your eyes
• A gritty feeling in your eyes
• Stringy mucus in or around your eyes
• Sensitivity to light
• Redness of the eye
• Blurry vision
• More watery than usual
Causes Of Dry Eye Syndrome
Many factors can impact dry eyes, including age, whether you regularly wear contact lenses, if you spend a lot of time in an air-conditioned environment, and if you work in an office. And, with more than 40 percent of Americans now working in an office environment, regularly looking at a computer screen, it’s hardly surprising that so many of the population’s eyes are suffering.
Interestingly, another influencer is the weather, with windy, cold, dry, or dusty environments potentially impacting dry eyes.
What Are The Long-Term Risks Of Dry Eye Syndrome?
If left untreated or a sufferer doesn’t make the necessary changes in their lives that could help, there are a number of potential long-term risks, for example, eye infections. Additionally, if left untreated, the condition can cause damage to the surface of the eyes, including eye inflammation, surface scratches, ulcers, and ultimately vision loss.
What Can You Do To Help If You Have Dry Eyes?
We know just how worrying it can be if you regularly suffer from dry eyes, however, try not to panic and instead, try making these adjustments to see if they help:
• Use prescribed eye drops regularly
• Adjust your surroundings if you can, so you’re not always working in air-conditioned rooms or those with central heating
• Take regular rest periods from looking at televisions, computer, and phone screens
• Remember to blink regularly when reading
• If you have a contact lens user, consider giving your eyes a break by wearing glasses
