Dry Eye Services
Dry eye syndrome (DES or dry eye) is a chronic lack of sufficient lubrication and moisture on the surface of the eye. Its consequences range from minor irritation to the inability to wear contact lenses and an increased risk of corneal inflammation and eye infections. If left untreated, dry eye syndrome can lead to blurry vision.
One of the biggest reasons that there has been an increase in dry eye syndrome in recent years is due to computer use. Everyone loves computers but there is significant research proving that as we stare at a computer screen our tear film evaporates quicker and our tear producing glands are actually dying at a faster rate. Dr. Colston specializes in analyzing your tear production and recommending any necessary diet or lifestyle changes. There are a variety of therapeutic options that go beyond just re-wetting artifical tears. Come in to the office today for a dry eye evaluation.
