What is Dry Eye?

Dry eye disease is a common condition where your tears aren’t sufficiently hydrating your eyes because they lack the correct ratio of three main components: oil, water, and mucus. When these are unbalanced, the results are itchy, uncomfortable, red, or fatigued eyes, as well as blurry vision and difficulty focusing. There are two main types of dry eye disease where your eyes either don’t produce enough tears, or your tears lack the proper amount of oil and evaporate quickly. No matter what causes your dry eye, we have customized ways to keep your eyes comfortable and healthy!

Kennedy Can Help You Get Relief From The Symptoms of Dry Eye

Our attentive team is here to ensure that you get the dry eye solutions you need by personalizing a care plan that includes lifestyle changes, eyedrops, eyelid wipes, and supplements that don’t just provide you with relief from itchy, uncomfortable symptoms: they relieve you of dry eye.

Our cutting-edge diagnostic technology can help identify one of the most common sources of dry eye disease: meibomian gland dysfunction(MGD). This condition occurs when your oil-producing glands that help lubricate your tears become clogged, preventing your eyes from staying moist. To help us know if your dry eye is being caused by MGD so we can better treat you, we’ve invested in advanced meibography which takes detailed images of your glands so we can diagnose and assess any damage.

Do You Have Dry Eye?

You may have dry eye disease and not even know it if you’re experiencing any of the following symptoms:

  • Eye redness
  • Itching, stinging, and burning sensations
  • Eye fatigue
  • Blurry vision
  • Light sensitivity
  • Watery eyes
  • Difficulty using contact lenses
  • Trouble with near focus, such as when using screens or reading

You don’t have to suffer with dry eye disease–our caring professionals are here to help you find relief!

Testimonial Quote

- Johnny T.

“Brittany went above and beyond customer service to make sure she helped me, and saved me hundreds, when I was prepared to spend money on new frames. Was really impressed with her! Especially, as I said, she spent her own time, and work doing this, and I didn’t even know this was an option. Thank you Kennedy!”
