Dry Eye, My Eyes Cry
You might think it strange to be diagnosed with “dry eye” when your eyes water all the time, but watery eyes can be a symptom of chronic dry eye. Other symptoms could include:
- Blurry vision
- Feeling like something is in your eye
- And the list continues!
The great news is that today there are more solutions for treating dry eye than ever before. If you have been suffering from dry eyes, or any of the symptoms here, it’s time to give yourself some “eye love” and see your optometrist or ophthalmologist. And if your eye doctor happens to prescribe xiidra, a recently FDA approved eye drop for the treatment for dry eye, you can visit www.xiidra.com and find out if you may be eligible to obtain your first prescription free.
There is no reason to suffer any more and any problems with your eyes should not be left to chance. Make a call now to New England Eye Center in Boston at 1-617-636-4600 or visit www.neec.com for a satellite office near you and schedule an appointment with our Optometry Department and don’t forget to mention your dry eye symptoms.
