life with dry eye
how dry eye is
hint: googling "do I have dry
eye?" is not the right answer
The internet is great for all sorts of things. Just not when you're trying to figure out what's really going on with your eyes. And typing in your symptoms can bring up some scary results…not to mention some gross pictures. That's why it's best to leave the diagnosing to an expert: your eye doctor.
Eye doctors are trained to diagnose dry eye from a mile away. Well, maybe more like a few inches away. And all they'll need is some info from you, like…
Where you live
If you wear contacts
If you're using artificial tears
By examining the surface of your eyes for signs of irritation and inflammation, your eye doctor will get a better idea of what's really going on with your eyes. And once all the info is gathered, you may get a diagnosis—and some additional peace of mind. Try to connect with your eye doctor at least once a year.
