Diagnosing Dry Eye Syndrome

Chronic dry eye can be a debilitating eye condition that can potentially become very difficult to treat. At Cascade Vision Center, we have state of the art equipment available to help evaluate and treat this chronic problem. It’s secondary to a reduction in the quantity of tears, increased evaporation of tears, and chronic inflammation which causes a reduction in the quality of tears. All of these factors contribute to a poor tear film. This causes various symptoms such as burning, tearing, foreign body sensation, and blurred vision. In order for your eyes to be functioning properly, they require a healthy tear film. Without it, you will not see your best.

At your next visit, we encourage you to ask for a dry eye work up. Using sophisticated equipment, we are able to quantify exactly how dry you are. Furthermore, at your follow up visits, we can repeat this test and monitor your improvement objectively.

Treating this condition requires a multifaceted approach. We must increase lubrication, decrease evaporation and improve the quality of the tears. We have various ways of doing this and we tailor the treatment regimen to each patient’s individual needs. If you suspect you have been living with dry eyes, call our offices today.
