My eyes are always burning and tired, what is causing this and what can I do about it?

These are often signs of dry eye syndrome, a very common condition that affects many people over time. Women are generally more prone to developing these symptoms and aging is often a cause as well. Dryness of our eyes is often due to a decrease in the oil production in our eyelid glands which causes the surface of the eye to become irritated. Certain medications and health issues can also contribute to dryness. There is no true cure for dryness but many treatments are available such as the use of artificial tears, nutritional supplements incorporating Omega 3, prescription medications such as Restasis, and eyelid hygiene. No single treatment works for every individual so we customize treatments for each person and their specific condition.

I was very pleased with my experience at this office. My consultation was far more thorough than I had anticipated and I was made to feel comfortable throughout the entire procedure. Dr Thompson's sense of humour made for a pleasant visit. Thank you!

I have only praise for Thompson Optometry. They are professional,, thorough and friendly. I was referred to Dr Thompson for vision therapy as a result of a brain injury I sustained in an accident. I cannot believe what a difference it has made to my vision and headaches. The exercises are challenging and the homework just as challenging. They encourage the homework so that you see improvement week to week. I wish more people knew were referred for this therapy. I have an amazing therapist Albert who is patient, encouraging and explains the reasons for the various exercises. When tested after the therapy my vision showed improvement. I highly recommend this therapy. I am 69 and if works on me then think about what it could do to children and students!
