Dry Eye & Blepharitis

Dry eyes result from the chronic lack of lubrication and moisture on the surface of the eye, which can cause irritation. There is often an underlying eyelid disease called blepharitis. Blepharitis is extremely common and causes symptoms of discomfort, itching, burning, redness and tearing. Other related symptoms include light sensitivity and intermittently blurred vision due to excessively watery tears.

The optometrists at Summerland Optometry are up to date with the latest treatments and managments for these conditions. Visit our Eye Store to find out how nutritional supplements can help to decrease dry eye symptoms.
