VIEWS FOR 20/20 by Dr. Mark Skowron NO WATER IN SIGHT According to one poll, nearly 30 million Americans suffer from "dry eye syndrome," which occurs when tears do not provide sufficient lubrication for the eyes. According to other sources, nearly one half of adult Americans regularly experience dry eye symptoms, and five million Americans aged 50 years and older suffer from significant dry eye symptoms. Dry eye can occur at any age due to use of certain medications; environmental factors such as smoke, wind, and dust; and certain medical conditions. Because severe drying of the surface of the eyes can lead to an increased risk of serious infections that scar, thin, and even perforate of the cornea, treatment is necessary to avert possible vision loss. Tears are essential for optimal eye health, vision and comfort. Ideally, tear film covers the eyes at all times to prevent the eyes from drying out and to ensure clear vision. The first thing to look at when you have dry eyes is whether you are taking any medications, engaging in certain behaviors or being exposed to environmental factors that may be causing the condition. When you need to schedule an eye exam, please contact SKOWRON EYE CARE. At Skowron eyecare, your 20/20 vision is our mission. P.S. Dry eye syndrome is nearly twice as common in women as in men.
