Q&A with Dr. Joshi | Dry Eye Syndrome

Is it true Dry Eye symptoms can be seasonal in nature?

Yes, dry eye symptoms tend to be more severe in warmer months. Just like your body can become dehydrated with increased heat so can your eyes, specifically the cornea or outer surface of the eye.

What is the examination like to determine whether someone is suffering from dry eye syndrome?

The first step in a dry eye exam (or any exam for that matter) is to record an accurate medical history for the patient. Many times the symptoms are caused by underlying systemic conditions which need to be treated. After that a thorough examination of the eye under a slit lamp can reveal any physical conditions such as blepharitis or a defect of the lacriminal gland which could be the culprit for dry eye syndrome. Another test that can be performed by a doctor is a tear film analysis which can reveal underlying causes of the dry eye.

Do you have any recommendations for people to help them avoid dry eye issues?

Drinking enough water, protecting your eyes from the sun with UV blocking sun glasses, and the use of nutritional supplements are a few things you can do to decrease your risk. As always the annual eye exam is a great way to evaluate eye health and be proactive about any potential conditions such as dry eye syndrome.
