Dry eye can be aggravated by a number of external factors including: computer use; heating and air conditioning; reading; exposure to dust and allergens; hot, dry or windy environments; contact lens use; certain medications; and demographics.
While the causes of Dry Eye Syndrome may vary, for the millions of people who suffer, the symptoms are common and may include:
- eye redness
- burning, stinging or scratchy sensation in the eye, especially in an environment with low humidity
- a feeling that something is in the eye
- trouble wearing contact lenses
- a gritty feeling that may be persistent and painful
- eye dryness
- excessive tearing
- blurry vision
One very effective way to treat these symptoms is the daily application of a moist heat compress. Thermalon’s innovative new dry eye compress makes this easy, safe and convenient. It heats quickly in the microwave to provide a doctor recommended five minute dry eye treatments that will relieve and refresh your dry eyes … naturally.
If you cannot find relief from your dry eye symptoms, make an appointment with an eye care professional to discuss your symptoms.
