Q&A with Dr. Arkin

Dry Eyes Q&A

Q: Is it true that Dry Eye symptoms seem to be more severe in the winter than in the warmer spring and summer months?

Dry eye symptoms are always more severe in the winter due to the fact that we use heat which has a drying effect on our skin and eyes.

Q: When should a person come in to see their optometrist for Dry Eye symptoms and when is it enough to take care of this problem yourself?

If the person experiences burning of the eyes along with a gritty, sandy feeling without relief for more than two weeks, an eye doctor’s visit would be appropriate.

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

We use a number of different painless diagnostic dry eye tests. The Schirmer Tear Test and the Tear Breakup Time are some of them. They are quick with no discomfort. We are basically measuring tear production and how long it takes for the tear film to evaporate.
