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!
