College Station, TX (PRWEB) August 27, 2012
The International EyeCare Laser & Lifestyle Center, a trusted LASIK provider recently provided key information to educate patients about the causes and treatment for dry eye syndrome. Due to smart phone use and increased time in front of a computer, an increased number of patients are experiencing symptoms of dry eye syndrome.
According to the American Optometric Association, dry eye syndrome is a condition in which there are insufficient tears to lubricate and nourish the eye. Tears are necessary for maintaining the health of the front surface of the eye and for providing clear vision. Individuals with dry eye syndrome may experience symptoms of irritated, gritty, scratchy, or burning eyes, a feeling of something in their eyes, excess watering, and blurred vision. Advanced dry eye syndrome may damage the front surface of the eye and impair vision.
"Dry eye is not just a symptom for the elderly. This syndrome has been on the rise with increasing usage of social media and all the technology associated with it," said Dr. Stephanie Turk of International EyeCare Laser & Lifestyle Center. "The average time spent in front of a computer is four to six hours a day, and has been on the rise with increasing smart phone usage. Dry eyes can not only be debilitating and uncomfortable but it can affect the quality of your vision."
The physicians at the International EyeCare Laser & Lifestyle Center are experienced in correctly diagnosing dry eye syndrome and determining the right treatment for each case.
