Dry eye is caused by having poor quality, or not enough tears. Eye Care Center has the technology to test the quality of a patient’s tears and tailor a treatment for their specific condition. If you have a mild form of dry eye, here are a few simple environmental changes you can make: 1. Avoid sitting directly in front of heating or air-conditioning vents. Move them so they are not blowing directly in your face. 2. Try shielding your eyes when using a blow dryer. 3. Avoid smoke as it aggravates dry eyes. If you are a smoker, you may want to seriously consider quitting. 4. During the winter months, use a humidifier to add moisture to the air.
