Many times dry eye can be caused by eyelid malposition as well as decreased tear production. This is why teardrops alone do not always solve the problem.
About Dry Eye Conditions
Healthy eyes rely on the moisture and lubrication provided by tears in order to maintain vision and comfort. When the eye fails to produce enough tears, a condition known as dry eye may occur.
Individuals suffering from dry eye may experience:
- Blurred vision.
- Feeling of a foreign body in the eye.
- Gritty sensation in the eye.
- Sensitivity to light.
If you or a loved one is experienced the above symptoms, you should consult a knowledgeable eye surgeon in Lakeland, Florida. Along with his team of highly trained and compassionate medical professionals, Dr. Geoffrey M. Kwitko, M.D. F.A.C.S. has provided skilled medical care for a broad range of eye conditions for more than 30 years.
Causes of Dry Eye
Inadequate tear production may be the result of several factors, including eyelid malposition. Eyelid malposition refers to structural problems with the eyelids that don’t allow them to close properly, such as:
- Drooping upper lids (ptosis)
- Drooping lower lids (ectropion)
- In-turned eyelids (entropion)
- Scarred and shortened eyelids (retraction)
- Other abnormalities
In addition to eyelid malposition, dry eye can also be caused by:
- Diseases that impair the eye’s ability to produce tears, including rheumatoid arthritis and collagen vascular diseases
- Drugs such as antihistamines and birth control pills
- Dry air from air conditioning, heat or other environmental factors
As an experienced Florida eye surgeon, Dr. Kwitko can diagnose and treat your dry eye condition. This includes performing eyelid surgery to correct eyelid malposition.
