Ensuring crisp and clear vision is only one part of first-rate eye care. In addition to testing visual acuity, our Richmond optometrist focuses on the comprehensive and long-term health of your eyes and vision along with fitting a wide variety of contact lenses and eyeglasses. Many common eye diseases, such as macular degeneration, cataracts and glaucoma, do not present symptoms until a later stage so executing thorough annual examinations is our utmost importance.

Q&A | Dry Eye with Dr. Talha Rahman

How do I know if I have Dry Eye?

Dry eye can cause quite a few symptoms, anything from the eyes actually feeling dry to the eyes watering often, or having a burning, itchy, or irritated feeling. One of the most common symptoms is the eyes feeling gritty or like something is in your eye. Most people will often experience blurred vision since the tears, which comprise the outermost surface of the eye, are unstable.

What are some of the symptoms of Dry Eye?

There are numerous symptoms of dry eye disease, but the most common ones include excess tearing, lack of tearing, burning, redness, foreign body sensation, intermittently blurred vision, and an inability to tolerate contact lenses. If you have any of the above symptoms, and want a professional diagnosis, please make an appointment here.

What is the examination like to determine whether someone is suffering from Dry Eyes?

A full dry eye evaluation may include a series of tests depending on initial signs and symptoms, systemic history, medication, and lifestyle. Most of these tests are non-invasive and are painless. They can range from special colored dyes placed on the eyelid to assess severity, direct visualization of the oil glands to check for meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD) or atrophy, to tear production analysis to name a few. The evaluation will be tailored to narrow down the specific cause of Dry Eye Syndrome.
