Living the climate of dry, arid Las Vegas can take a toll on your eyes. If you have dry, red, itchy eyes and are seeking Henderson dry eye treatment from a, then you need to come into the eye care center of Joseph Eng, OD today for a comprehensive eye and vision test.
Dry eyes can become red and irritated, causing a feeling of scratchiness. Another symptom of dry eyes is a “foreign body sensation,” which is a feeling that something is in your eye. And it may seem odd, but dry eye syndrome also can cause watery eyes. This is because dryness on the eye’s surface sometimes will overstimulate production of the watery component of your tears as a protective mechanism. An eye test given by Dr. Eng is the first step in receiving dry eye treatment. Dr. Eng provides routine eye exams, treatment of conjunctivitis/pink eye, as well as treatment of allergic and dry eyes. As you will learn during your visit to our vision center, persistent dryness, scratchiness, red eyes, and a burning sensation are common symptoms of Henderson dry eyes. These symptoms alone may prompt Dr. Eng to diagnose dry eye syndrome. Dry eye syndrome is caused by a chronic lack of sufficient lubrication and moisture on the surface of the eye. Its consequences range from subtle but constant irritation to inflammation of the front tissues of the eye.
Routine eye exams, regardless if your eyes feel dry, red, and itchy or not, are incredibly important. Annual eye health evaluations and vision tests are the easiest way for your eye doctor to notice small problems and changes with your eyes or vision. So if you are seeking Henderson dry eye treatment, or if you simply want our team of caring eye doctors to assess and evaluate your eyes as an indicator of your overall health, then you should come to Joseph Eng, OD for your vision test and dry eye treatment.
Eyes are an incredibly delicate part of the body and any conditions in the area should be treated with care by our Henderson Nevada eye doctor. Dry eye syndrome is common, especially among older adults, but can occur in most anyone. It happens when the eye produces insufficient tears or poor quality tears that fail to nourish the eye properly. A well-lubricated eye helps protect the eye from dust particles and acts as a shield against dirt and other harmful fragments that can scratch or injure the eye. Here at Joseph Eng, OD we have the knowledge and know-how to properly educate suffering patients regarding dry eye issues and effectively treat them.

This Henderson Nevada eye doctor can help your chronic dry eye condition. Dr. Eng has over twenty years experience as a practicing optometrist, and our other doctor, Dr. Tan, specializes in a number of eye related conditions, including dry eye syndrome. Either of our certified and experienced optometrists here at Joseph Eng, OD will give you a thorough eye exam to determine any eye conditions or vision problems. Eyes produce tears regularly and supply the eyeball with proper lubrication every time we blink our eyes. The production of these tears keeps eyes healthy by washing away any foreign matter such as dirt or dust particles, keeps the surface of the eye smooth and by doing so helps reduce the risk of infection and inflammation. When the tear ducts fail to produce enough tears or fail to produce good tear quality, the eyes become prone to infection and disease which can affect your comfort, overall health, and your vision.
After one of our Henderson Nevada eye doctors performs a comprehensive eye examination, we here at Joseph Eng, OD can then proceed to providing you with the necessary information and tools you need to counter this condition. Dry eyes can be caused by any number of things, including age, any prescription medications, and environmental conditions. Once you have discussed the possibilities inherent to your case, either Dr. Eng or Dr. Tan will provide you with the necessary treatment options to keep your eyes healthy and comfortable.
