Dry eye disease is becoming increasingly common, affecting millions of people worldwide. This chronic condition can significantly impact your life, sometimes making even the smallest of tasks seem difficult.

5 Common Dry Eye Triggers

Dry eyes occur when your eyes cannot produce enough tears to remain lubricated and moisturized. Various triggers can cause tears to be unstable and inadequate. The condition can cause much discomfort and you can experience stinging and burning in your eyes.

Contacts Vs. Glasses: Which Is Right for You?

You can choose between contact lenses and eyeglasses to see better if your eyes are healthy but lack 20/20 vision. They both have their pros and cons. If your eye doctor diagnoses you with a refractive error, deciding between the two can be tasking. Read on to find out which is suitable for you.

Can an Optometrist Help with Eye Allergies?

Many people mistakenly believe that you should only ever visit a family doctor/general practitioner to discuss allergies. However, this isn’t the case. While they may be able to perform a basic physical assessment and a general diagnosis, they don’t have the training and experience needed to carry out in-depth assessments. This may make it difficult for them to accurately diagnose eye allergies, and they could overlook other potential causes of your symptoms which could have more significant consequences for your eye health and vision.
