Why Do My Eyes Get Dry?
There are many reasons why your eyes can become irritated: contact lenses, computer and smart phone usage, extensive reading, eye disease, environmental conditions, eye surgery, and more.
However, if over-the-counter eye drops are not providing enough relief from your chronic symptoms, you may actually have a dry eye condition that requires professional help. Uncovering the root cause of your symptoms will allow us to recommend the best treatment, saving you money and frustration.
