Beach Eye Care treatment of Contact Lens Discomfort & Dry Eyes in Wasaga Beach, Collingwood, and Barrie, Ontario
Dry Eye Syndrome, termed keratoconjunctivitis (KCS) refers to dry eyes that irritate you constantly. This annoying condition is due to insufficient production of tears or a poor quality tear composition. When your eyes aren’t lubricated well, you’ll suffer from the sensations of scratchiness, burning, watery eyes, blurred vision and/or a feeling of something gritty stuck in your eyes. The particular cause of dry eyes varies from person to person, and effective dry eye treatment is therefore also highly individual
Symptoms of dry eyes include redness, scratchiness, itching, a sensation that something gritty is stuck in your eye, excessive watering and the need to keep rubbing your eyes. While there is no cure for dry eyes, our goal is to bring you lasting relief. Additionally, if you are considering LASIK, dry eyes may prevent you from being a good candidate for this refractive surgery.
Many people love the convenience and quality vision of contact lenses. If you are interested in wearing lenses instead of eyeglasses, we’ll help you with all that you need. At Beach Eye Care, our eye doctors will examine your eyes to determine if you’re a good candidate for contacts, and we’ll fit you with the best type for your visual requirements.
