There are many potential causes of dry eye that our optometrist in Hasbrouck Heights can diagnose and treat. One of the most common causes is that of eye allergies, which can be seasonal or last year-round. Often times, allergies can lead to eye irritation and dry eye symptoms, which can include:
In addition to eye allergies, other factors can also contribute to dry eye, such as genetics or even environmental factors. For example, being around cigarette smoke or in an environment with low air humidity levels can cause dry eye symptoms to flare up.
The good news is that if you suffer from dry eye, whether it be due to eye allergies or any other cause, our Hasbrouck Heights optometrist can help. We'll begin by getting to the bottom of the cause of your dry eye before formulating a treatment plan that addresses the root cause specifically. If your dry eye is caused by eye allergies, for example, our optometrist in Hasbrouck Heights may recommend eye allergy treatment in the form of medicated eye drops or other medication. Aside from eye allergy treatment, we can also provide treatment and suggestions for other factors that are known to cause dry eye.
