Here at Brook Plaza Ophthalmology, one of the most common reasons that patients seek treatment from our Brooklyn NY ophthalmologist is because they are struggling with dry eye symptoms. Dry eyes can be caused by a lack of tears, a decreased quality of tears, or a combination of both. The resulting consequences can range from mild to severe. Some symptoms typically associated with dry eye syndrome include: a constant feeling of dryness in the eyes, itchiness in the eyes, red eyes, and a frequent burning sensation. If you are familiar with these symptoms, you should schedule an appointment with our Brooklyn NY ophthalmologist as soon as possible. During your visit here at Brook Plaza Ophthalmology, we will discuss your symptoms with you and perform a thorough examination of your eyes in order to most fully and helpfully evaluate your situation. If we find that you are indeed experiencing symptoms related to dry eye syndrome, we will then work with you to find the treatment solution that is best suited for your individual needs. In many cases, the treatments for dry eye are simple—they aim to lubricate the eyes and replace the tears that are either too few or of poor quality. Our Brooklyn NY ophthalmologist might prescribe artificial tears for you to use when your symptoms are bothering you, and these often have excellent results. Other treatment options might include making changes to your surroundings and environment, and well as nutritional changes and keeping yourself properly hydrated.
