Dry, itchy, irritated eyes? From time-to-time we all experience dry, itchy, or irritated eyes. Your eye can be irritated for many reasons, including lack of sleep, seasonal or acute allergies, broken blood vessels, dry-eye syndrome, or even serious eye infections.
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it is best to seek the advice of your eye doctor. If your condition turns out to be serious, like an acute eye infection, then prescription medication and your doctor’s monitoring might be needed to prevent long-term or permanent vision loss.
Even if your condition turns out to be minor, like seasonal allergies, your eye doctor can help diagnose and treat your allergies with over-the-counter or prescription medications designed specifically to alleviate your symptoms.
If you are worried about your dry, itchy, or irritated eyes, or if your symptoms have persisted for more than a day or two, please contact us to schedule an appointment at Monroe Eye Care.
