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.

I have been a patient for over 40 years and have always received not only the most professional service, but the warmest and most personal service as well. I can’t image any other practice at the end of the exam that would put me at their desk and make sure I can read the computer screen with ease. Dr. Arkin knows IT and being online is critical to my job, and never fails to make sure that there no issues reading the screen!

He’s a great doctor. Very personable, great sense of humor. I always look forward to seeing him. I’ve had some weird situations with my eyes over the years, and he was able to diagnose what was going on and tell me what to do to treat it. He’s very knowledgeable. The staff is caring as well. I never feel like I’m getting the runaround or that they’re too busy to care. A very nice office environment.
