Tackling Dry Eye Syndrome: Your Summer Eye Care Guide

Dry eye syndrome is an increasingly common eye condition affecting millions worldwide. It occurs when the eyes don't produce enough tears or the tears evaporate too quickly. The hallmark symptoms of this condition include:

  • A stinging or burning sensation in the eyes
  • Excessive tearing followed by periods of dryness
  • Feeling like something is in your eye (grittiness)
  • Redness and irritation
  • Blurred vision, especially after long periods of screen use

These symptoms can be frustrating year-round, but the summer heat can make them all the worse. Below, our eye care team discusses the connection between dry eye syndrome and summer and how our eye clinic can help.

The Summer Dry Eye Connection

The summer months are a time for beaches and sunny days, but if you’re not careful, it can also be a time for dry eye symptoms such as red, itchy, or gritty-feeling eyes. During the summer, the heat and increased air conditioning exposure can worsen symptoms by reducing humidity levels and accelerating tear evaporation. This seasonal challenge makes it very important for individuals to take preventive measures and seek appropriate treatment to manage the condition effectively. Our eye care team is ready to assist in addressing your dry eye symptoms, ensuring a more comfortable summer.
