Dry Eye Syndrome And Medical Procedures That Can Cause Dry Eye
Dry Eye Syndrome can be caused by many factors. These include age, genetics, environment, lifestyle, medications, and the overall medical health of your eyes. Regardless of which factor(s) contribute to your Dry Eye Syndrome, the result is a situation where your eyes are either not producing enough tears to keep your eye lubricated, or the tears are not formulated with the correct balance of water, lipids, and mucous to maintain proper lubrication.
This results in the sore, gritty, and painful condition we call Dry Eye Syndrome. Sometimes, basic lifestyle and dietary changes can prevent and even alleviate the symptoms. At other times, more steps will be required to get the relief you need and deserve. Here are some of the most common factors which contribute to Dry Eye Syndrome.
The most common complications from medical procedures which result in dry eyes are eye surgery or injury, as well as radiation therapy. After any eye surgery or serious injury, or after receiving radiation therapy, you should carefully monitor your tear production. Always inform us if you have ever undergone any medical procedure on or near your eyes, or received radiation therapy. If you notice that your eyes are getting dryer, contact us. The Dry Eye Center At Advanced Eyecare Center has advanced techniques and experience in diagnosing and treating Dry Eye Syndrome.
