Are you finding it hard to see clearly or feeling discomfort in your eyes? It might not just be a minor issue – you could be dealing with dry eye syndrome. At Eye Care of La Jolla, we understand the importance of your eye health and how it connects to your lifestyle and culture. Let’s explore what dry eye is and how we can help you manage it in a way that respects your unique needs. 

Dry Eye Syndrome happens when your eyes don’t make enough tears or when the tears dry up too quickly. This can lead to various symptoms like: 

  • Blurry vision 
  • Itchy or irritated eyes 
  • Sensitivity to light 
  • Feeling like something is in your eye 

We want you to know that while occasional dryness can sometimes be eased with drops you can buy without a prescription, if your symptoms stick around, it might mean there’s something more serious going on. Ignoring dry eye symptoms could cause vision problems down the road. 

At Eye Care of La Jolla, we’re dedicated to giving you the care you deserve. Our team of specialists is skilled in figuring out the root cause of your dry eye and creating a treatment plan tailored just for you. We use advanced tools to get to the bottom of why you’re experiencing dry eye.
