Dry Irritated Eyes? Time For An Eye Examination
Your eyes stay hydrated and comfortable thanks to the various glands around them that produce oil or tears. The liquid coats your eyes and protects them from dirt, dust, and other irritants. Dry eyes might indicate a problem affecting the production of these lubricants. It can cause discomfort and a burning sensation, making it difficult to keep your eyes open. See a doctor if the condition persists so they can determine what the underlying cause is. Speak to Simon Kleyn Opticians nearby to Coggeshall for all eye related problems.

You may have had an eye examination previously and remember a stressful sudden puff of air on you eyes during the examination. This puff of air was used to check the pressure in your eyes. We now use a small eye drop to measure the pressure in both of your eyes. This is significantly less stressful than the air puff and also increases the accuracy of the pressure test. The pressure measurement using drops is the only NICE approved way and used routinely by the eye clinics. The drops used for taking eye pressure do not cause blurred vision or glare and you can drive straight after the test. An eye pressure reading is taking to help us assess your risk for Glaucoma.
If you are suffering from red eyes, it may be an indication that you have a minor eye condition, such as conjunctivitis. Commonly, red eye is painless. However just beacuse it doesn’t affect your vision too severely it does not mean you shouldn’t seek the help of an opticians if you notice your eyes are red.
Do Face Masks Trigger Dry Eyes?
Unfortunately, since mask-associated dry eye is a new development, resources regarding this condition are still limited. However, a few reports are explaining the causes of mask-induced dry eye.
One of the causes for mask-associated dry eye is airflow. When you incorrectly wear a mask and you breathe out, air finds its way out of the mask and to the surface of your eyes and eyelids. This pushes the water in your eyes to evaporate and ultimately dry out your eyes. Some people try to prevent this by taping their masks; however, this interferes with your lower eyelid’s functions and still leads to dry eye.
