Dry Eye Treatment in Irving

Dr. Vielma, of Vielma Vision Eyecare in Irving, TX explains, “Symptoms of dry eyes include stinging or burning in the eyes, scratchiness, and excessive irritation from smoke or wind. Although it may sound counter-intuitive, the eyes’ response to the consistent irritation caused by dry eyes may also cause a person to experience excessive tearing. In this case, the eye is attempting to flush and lubricate itself by producing more tears, but is unable to do so successfully due to the rate of evaporation or inability to spread the tears properly.”

Q&A with Dr. Vielma | Dry Eyes?

How do I know if I have Dry Eye?

Dry eye can cause quite a few symptoms, anything from the eyes actually feeling dry to the eyes watering often, or having a burning, itchy, or irritated feeling. One of the most common symptoms is the eyes feeling gritty or like something is in your eye. Most people will often experience blurred vision since the tears, which comprise the outermost surface of the eye, are unstable.

Is there anything I can do to prevent DES?

Dry eye is multi-factorial, and each person’s dry eye is unique to them. To help prevent dry eye, make sure to consume 8 to 10 glasses of water per day to avoid dehydration. Some nutritional supplements, such as fish oil and flax seed oil, can contribute to a more stable tear layer.

Remember to blink regularly and take breaks often when on a computer, cell phone or when watching television. During times of the year when there is less humidity, a humidifier might be helpful to provide more moisture in the air.

Eyewear can be a confidence booster!

Whether you want contact lenses or glasses, we make sure that you get both what looks good, but more importantly what works for your personal situation as well. We at Vielma Vision Eyecare stand behind our products by knowing we offer high-quality eyewear manufactured by smaller, independent companies. We are continuously inspired by the beauty and individuality of handmade frames and the science and technology behind eye health and vision improvement.

We also ensure our employees are constantly learning and growing within this dynamic field.
