Dry Eye Center of Acadiana

Dry Eye syndrome or dry eye disease is a common condition that occurs when the eyes don’t make enough tears or the tears evaporate too quickly.  Tears are necessary for maintaining the health of the eye’s front surface and for providing clear, comfortable vision.  Dry eye is a very common disease affecting 25-30% of all people over the age of 40; women more so than men.

Symptoms of Dry eye vary and range from being mild and annoying to extremely severe; even debilitating.  Symptoms include sore, irritated eyes.  Scratchy and itchy eyes, chronic redness, excessive tearing, and fluctuating or blurred vision are also common.  patients often complain of feeling as if something is in their eye.
