Why Are My Eyes So Dry?

Even when you are in a great mood, your eyes are covered in tears. That helpful fluid keeps your eyes comfortable and healthy, providing water for moisture, oils for lubrication, and even antibodies that battle potential infections.

When your eyes are dry, it usually means that you don’t have enough tears to keep your eyes at their best. But why you’re struggling with dry eyes can vary. Anything from a health condition to lifestyle choices can be responsible. If you are wondering why your eyes are so dry, here’s what you need to know.

Dry Eye Symptoms

If you have dry eyes, you may experience a number of symptoms. It may feel like there’s grit or an eyelash in your eye. You may have some itching or stinging. Eye redness or fatigue can occur, and you may see some stringy mucus. In some cases, your vision may even get blurry, and you might become sensitive to light.

When the level of tears falls low enough, your eyes might start overproducing tears, leading to watery eyes. It’s a condition caused reflex tearing, where your nervous system tries to compensate for the lack of lubrication by over-moisturizing your eyes.

Causes of Dry Eye

While dry eyes are almost universally a signal that there aren’t enough tears to keep your eyes comfortable and healthy, the reason for the lack of tears can vary. Usually, tear production decreases naturally as a person ages, particularly for women who enter menopause.

Certain medications can be dehydrating and may lead to dry eye. Additionally, numerous health conditions can reduce tear production, including collagen vascular diseases, some autoimmune conditions, diabetes, and thyroid disorders.

A vitamin A deficiency may lead to dry eyes. Additionally, anyone who’s had tear gland damage may not produce enough tears, and people with eyelid problems may struggle to keep their eyes lubricated.

Lifestyle can also play a role. Wind and smoke can dry out the eyes. If you spend a lot of time driving, reading, on a computer, or using a smartphone, you may blink less, causing tears to evaporate more quickly or not be spread across the eye as often as needed.

Effective Dry Eye Treatments

Since there are numerous potential causes of dry eye, it’s always best to speak with a doctor. That way, they can determine if an underlying health condition may be responsible and that you receive proper treatment.

In most cases, dry eye symptoms can be relieved by using artificial tears (eye drops) or ointment. Many over the counter options can make your eyes more comfortable, though you may need to try a few to see which one works best for you. There are also prescription versions if your doctor thinks those are a better option.

If your case is severe, your doctor may recommend other treatments. For example, punctal occlusion – a process where the duct that allows tears to drain is plugged, either temporarily or permanently, to keep tears in your eye longer – may be appropriate in some situations. Lipiflow, where a device is used to unclog blocked eyelid tear glands, might also be recommended by a physician if a lack of oil is causing your dry eye.

At times, dietary changes, such as increasing the amount of omega-3 in your diet, may provide relief. Topical testosterone creams or steroid drops might also be on the table.

If you are struggling with dry eyes and you haven’t addressed it with a doctor, it’s time for a visit to your ophthalmologist or optometrist. Schedule an appointment at your nearest ECVA clinic today. Our skilled team will work diligently to determine the cause of your dry eyes and protect your health. We’ll create a customized treatment plan based on your unique needs, whatever they may be.

Diabetic Eye Care Tips

If you have diabetes, you are at a greater risk of developing a variety of eye conditions or diseases, including blindness. Diabetes is the leading cause of blindness in individuals younger than 74.

Diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, and cataracts all have a higher occurrence in those who have been diagnosed with diabetes. Additionally, you may struggle with conditions like dry eye. This can make your eyes feel incredibly uncomfortable and might affect your visual acuity.

If you want to make sure that your eyes remain healthy, here are some diabetic eye care tips to follow.

Keep Control of Your Blood Sugar

High blood sugar can alter your eye lens’ shape, leading to temporarily blurry vision. Additionally, elevated blood sugar can damage blood vessels in the eye, leading to issues with eye health and visual acuity.

By keeping your blood sugar as controlled as possible, you can avoid these issues. Make sure to speak with your doctor to identify an A1c goal and then work to achieve it and to keep your blood sugar in check each and every day.

Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle

If you are diabetic, a healthy lifestyle is often essential. If you eat healthy, exercise, check your blood sugar often, and use any medications prescribed by your doctor, you have the best odds reducing your LDL cholesterol, and ensuring your heart health.

Healthy eating and exercise can help your eyes. They can ensure that you get the proper nutrients and maintain good blood flow. Additionally, it may lower your LDL cholesterol, something that, if left unchecked, may cause blood vessel damage that could harm your eyes.

If you have diabetes and have high blood pressure, you are increasing your odds of developing certain eye diseases and suffering from vision loss. By making healthy lifestyle changes that keep your blood pressure in the healthy range, you are protecting your eye health, too.

See Your Ophthalmologist Annually

Many diabetic eye diseases initially have no symptoms. By seeing your ophthalmologist every year and having a dilated eye exam, they can look for signs of damage before any changes to your vision occur. This can allow them to start treatment before symptoms appear, ensuring your vision is preserved or that the reduction is as limited as possible.

Schedule Emergency Eye Appointments If Necessary

Certain vision changes could indicate a problem that needs to be addressed immediately. If you begin to see black spots or lines in your vision that won’t disappear, see red spots or fog, experience sudden changes in visual acuity, or your eyes begin to struggle when adjusting to darkness, head to your eye doctor’s office immediately.

If you are diabetic and concerned about your eye health, make a plan to visit your ophthalmologist or optometrist right away. Schedule an appointment at your closest ECVA clinic. Our skilled team will conduct a thorough exam, ensuring any health concerns can be addressed. Plus, they’ll work diligently to resolve any vision issues, allowing you to see clearly. We’ll design a personalized treatment plan based on your needs, ensuring your eyes can remain as healthy as possible.

Amblyopia (Lazy Eye) in Adults

Amblyopia – also known as lazy eye – is an eye condition that isn’t caused by an underlying disease. Usually, it only impacts one eye. However, there are some patients that have amblyopia in both eyes. 

Adults with the condition often experience reduced vision that isn’t always correctable with glasses or contact lenses. Typically, the vision loss is due to how the brain treats input from the amblyopic eye or eyes. Instead of fully acknowledging the visual stimuli, the brain seemingly ignores the visuals. While the eye may also point inward or outward, the physical misalignment isn’t the source of the vision reduction. 

Signs of Amblyopia 

Certain symptoms are common with amblyopia. One or both eyes may wander inward or outward, or both eyes may not seem to be working together. Depth perception tends to be poor, and a person with amblyopia may squint or shut one eye to achieve greater visual acuity. Head tilting when examining an object is also a possible sign, along with frequent eye strain, eye fatigue, or headaches. 

In many cases, amblyopia is detectable during a vision screening as well. Since eye exams look at visual acuity in a variety of scenarios, the visual acuity reduction can typically be identified. 

Typical Causes of Amblyopia 

One of the most common causes of amblyopia is strabismus, a condition where one eye is turned, preventing proper alignment between both eyes. Another potential source of lazy eye is anisometropia, where each eye has different levels of visual acuity. Trauma and eye blockage (such as a drooping eyelid) may also cause amblyopia. 

The reason these conditions can lead to amblyopia is the difference in visual capability. If one eye is capable of seeing clearly, but the other isn’t, the brain suppresses the information that is coming from the latter eye. That processing change can result in permanent vision loss. 

Treatment for Amblyopia 

Many people believe that amblyopia is only treatable in children, often those who are 12 years of age or younger. However, this isn’t necessarily the case. While every patient is different, some adults can see results from amblyopia treatment. 

Typically, eye patching or drops alone isn’t sufficient. While this may increase the visual acuity of the amblyopic eye, the approach isn’t guaranteed to result in better binocular vision (when both eyes work together). Without training to learn how to combine visuals from both eyes simultaneously, the overall results tend to be lackluster and don’t often stand the test of time. 

Luckily, there are other treatment options. Optometric vision therapy can help patients by engaging their eyes during activities that require binocular vision and encompass all distances (far, middle, and near). 

Essentially, the amblyopic eye undergoes physical therapy in conjunction with the healthy eye. And, in many cases, the visual acuity improvements can be substantial. 

There isn’t technically a surgery to correct amblyopia. However, if another condition is involved, such as strabismus, then surgical correction of that condition may be necessary. That way, it will be easier to train both eyes to work together. 

If you have amblyopia and are looking for treatment options, schedule an appointment at your nearest ECVA clinic today. Our talented team works diligently to ensure your eye health, performing thorough exams to identify any issues that may need correcting. We can design treatment options to meet your unique needs, providing the best outcome possible. 

Doctor, My Eyes Are Always Tired

Everyone’s eyes feel tired on occasion. But, if you are continually struggling with eye fatigue, it’s easy to become frustrated. You might experience physical eye discomfort, have double or blurred vision, or have headaches day after day. 

In most cases, the cause of eye tiredness isn’t serious. However, there are situations where eye fatigue could signal a significant issue that needs to be addressed. Here’s a look at what can cause tired eyes as well as insights into when you should see a doctor. 

Causes of Eye Fatigue 

Nearly anything that requires the intense use of your eyes can lead to fatigue, including in those with good vision or with current prescription corrective lenses. Some of the most common causes are reading, writing, and driving. 

Computer, smartphone, and television use may also be responsible, leading to an eye fatigue condition dubbed “digital eye strain” or “computer vision syndrome.” Not only is it challenging to focus your eyes on the screens, but many people blink less frequently when they use a computer or smartphone. This can make your eyes tired, dry, and itchy. 

Being in low or bright light may also lead to eye tiredness. Since the lighting conditions aren’t optimal, you might have trouble focusing. 

Dry eyes and situations that leave your eyes dry might make them feel tired as well. For example, if your eyes are exposed to vents or fans, they might fatigue more quickly. 

In some cases, eye strain could be an indication that your visual acuity has changed. If you are squinting more frequently or struggling to focus, you may need to get new or updated prescription lenses. Otherwise, your blurry vision results in more eye fatigue, leaving your eyes tired. 

Additionally, eye fatigue could be a symptom of various underlying conditions aside from the need for vision correction. Diseases or conditions that impact visual acuity could be responsible as well as one that affects the pressure inside your eye. 

When to See a Doctor About Eye Fatigue 

If you struggle with eye fatigue regularly or are experiencing any eye pain, it’s best to see your doctor as soon as possible. They can make sure that an underlying condition that requires treatment isn’t responsible and can provide you with personalized guidance to alleviate your symptoms. 

Anyone with visual acuity issues – including nearsighted or farsighted individuals as well as those living with cataracts, glaucoma, or macular degeneration – may be more likely to experience eye fatigue. Similarly, specific eye muscle problems, such as strabismus, may result in eye strain. Even some infections could create symptoms that mimic eye fatigue. A doctor can see if either of these are a factor and recommend proper treatment if needed. 

If you haven’t had your vision checked recently and your eyes always feel tired, visit your ophthalmologist or optometrist as soon as possible. Schedule an appointment at your closest ECVA clinic today, and our experienced team will work diligently to determine the cause and protect your eye health. Plus, any vision issues can be corrected, ensuring you can see clearly. We’ll design a customized treatment plan that meets your unique needs, whatever they may be. 

Tips for Exercising with Glasses

When you’re working out, your glasses can quickly become a hassle. As you move around, your glasses might not want to stay in place. Along with slipping down your nose, they could even fall off entirely. Plus, they might get foggy or smeared with sweat.  

Not only is this inconvenient, but it’s also potentially dangerous. You won’t be able to see clearly, increasing your odds of injury. Plus, your glasses might get damaged as they fall or after they hit the equipment or ground, and that’s problematic, too.  

Luckily, there are things you can do to make it easier to exercise with glasses. Here are some tips that can help.  

Get a Strap or Band  

A strap or band can be an excellent solution for keeping your glasses in place while you work out. In many cases, a tighter strap is ideal. It can hold your glasses in place even during a rigorous workout and won’t get wrapped around or caught in equipment when used correctly.  

Loose options that hang around your neck ensure your glasses don’t go tumbling to the ground if they happen to fall off. However, they should only be used when there isn’t a chance that they’ll get tangled in any machines or equipment.  

Bring a Cleaning Cloth or Wipes  

Having a cleaning cloth or wipes available means you can easily remove smears or handle it if your lenses fog up. With cleaning cloths, you’ll usually want to keep them in a bag or opt for one that comes in a small container. That way, you can keep it in the best shape possible.  

With wipes, you might have more flexibility. Since they are protected by packaging, you can keep a few in your pockets, and gym bag.  

Make Sure Your Frames Fit  

When your frames fit properly, they are more likely to stay in place. If yours tend to slide around, consider coming in to have them professional adjusted. That way, they stay tight around your ears and sit properly on your nose.  

If your frames are genuinely too large, then replacing them might be your best bet. That way, you can choose an option that fits better, increasing the odds that they’ll stay in place when you exercise.  

Ditch Glasses All Together  

Sometimes, the best way to ensure that your glasses won’t cause problems when your work out is to ditch them entirely. By switching to contact lenses or having your vision corrected with Lasik, you won’t have to worry about dealing with glasses when you exercise while still having the ability to see clearly.  

If you want to explore glasses alternatives with an ophthalmologist, have your glasses adjusted, or get a band or strap that can keep your glasses in place, ECVA can help. Our skilled team works diligently to ensure your eye health. Plus, we can help you determine which vision correction options work best for the activities you enjoy. Contact us or schedule an appointment at your nearest ECVA clinic today to learn more about how we can make it easier for you to work out while seeing clearly. 

Good Eye Health Resolutions to Make This Year

At the beginning of the year, many people make health-oriented resolutions. If you want to make sure that your eyes are in the best shape possible, make them a priority in 2020. Here are some good eye health resolutions that are worth making this year and committing to for the long-term.  

Wear Sunglasses  

Harmful UV rays aren’t just bad for your skin; they can damage your eyes as well. By wearing wraparound sunglasses that offer full-spectrum UV protection, even on cloudy days, you are keeping those rays from harming your eyes.  

Eat Healthy and Drink Water  

What you eat and drink can also make a difference when you want to maintain good eye health. Your eyes need a variety of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients to stay in the best shape possible. By consuming a diet chocked full of antioxidants and healthy fats, you are eating your way to better eye health.  

But you can’t stop there. You also need to drink plenty of water. That way, water-soluble vitamins can dissolve properly, and your eyes can stay hydrated, preventing uncomfortable dry eye.  

Take Screen Breaks  

While devices like smartphones, tablets, and computers are handy, they aren’t great for eye health. They can cause you to blink less, drying out your eyes. Plus, they can lead to eye fatigue, headaches, and eye strain, or may even lead to blurry vision.  

By taking breaks, you are letting your eyes rest and escape the “blue light” that can lead to many of the symptoms above. Plus, it may help you sleep better, too, as the blue light can disrupt circadian rhythms.  

Care for Your Contact Lenses Properly  

If you don’t care for your contacts properly, you are putting your eye health at risk. Without proper cleaning, bacteria can flourish. As a result, you might end up with an infection.  

If you’ve been lax with your contact lens care, make 2020 the year you turn it around. Always follow the directions when using solutions, store your lenses properly, and replace them based on the lens manufacturer’s schedule.  

Keep Your Eyes Clean  

Failing to keep your eye area clean can also increase your odds of getting an infection. Use good hygiene and wash the area around your eyes at least daily using a mild cleanser. Also, always wash your hands before touching your eyes to reduce the spread of bacteria.  

Schedule Your Eye Exam  

By seeing an eye doctor regularly, you are supporting your eye health. Any issues can be identified early, allowing for quick intervention with the right treatment plan. Plus, it ensures that your visual acuity is as good as possible, which is also essential.  

If you haven’t had your vision checked recently, then start the year off right by visiting your ophthalmologist or optometrist as soon as possible. Schedule an appointment at your nearest ECVA clinic today to help you achieve your eye health goals. Our experienced team works diligently to ensure your eye health by performing thorough exams. Plus, any vision issues can be corrected, ensuring you can see clearly. And we’ll design treatment options to meet your unique needs, whenever they arise.  

Protect Your Vision: 5 Ways You Can Prevent Eye Injuries

Eye injuries can happen anywhere. Along with workplace risks, certain home-based activities can damage the eye, as well. Luckily, the majority of eye injuries are completely preventable, as long as you take steps to protect your vision. Here’s a look at five ways you can protect your vision by preventing eye injuries. 

1. Wear Safety Glasses When Engaged in Risky Activities 

Whether you are doing home repairs, working in an industrial role, or handling yard work, safety glasses are a must if you want to prevent eye injuries. If an activity can cause debris, dust, or objectives to fly around, safety glasses allow you to shield your eyes. 

Ideally, you want to choose safety glasses that either wrap around your head or have side shields. Otherwise, a projectile might come in behind the lenses since there is nothing to block its path. 

2. If You’re Near Chemicals, Put on Googles 

Chemicals – including many household cleaners – can damage the eye if contact is made. Plus, even the fumes from certain substances can harm the eye, meaning direct contact through a splash, dust particles in the air, or accidentally touching the chemical and then your eye, isn’t necessary to hurt your eyes. 

By wearing goggles that fully seal, you can ensure that chemicals don’t get into your eye. Essentially, you are putting a physical barrier between your eyes on the substance, reducing the chance that contact with the chemical or fumes will occur. 

3. Put on a Face Shield When Cooking 

Grease or oil in a hot pan can splatter, and small droplets can fly up into the air. If you are cooking and the oil or grease begins to pop out of the pan, protecting yourself with a face shield or goggles can make sure it doesn’t harm your eyes. 

4. Use Protective Eyewear When Playing Sports 

Nearly any sport could be a potential eye injury risk. Balls, pucks, rackets, bats, frisbees, and anything else that is swung, thrown, kicked, or otherwise sent hurling through the air is a possible threat. By wearing eyewear that is tested for sports use, you can make sure that you have the proper amount of protection. 

5. Don’t Rely on Sunglasses to Save You from Eye Injuries 

Many sunglasses aren’t designed to withstand strong impacts. As a result, wearing them can actually be dangerous during certain activities. For example, if you’re playing baseball and the lenses break when struck by a ball, the pieces of broken plastic might travel toward your eye. This could lead to a serious injury, causing more harm than if no glasses were worn at all. 

Ultimately, the five tips above can help you protect your eyes and reduce your chances of injury. If your eye becomes injured or you simply haven’t had your vision checked recently, schedule an appointment at your nearest ECVA clinic. Our skilled team works diligently to manage your eye health, correct your vision, or treat eye injuries if they occur, ensuring your vision can be preserved or improved whenever possible. 

Learn How to Properly Clean Your Contact Lenses

If you’re new to contact lenses, you might have questions about correctly cleaning them. Since proper hygiene is critical for infection prevention and other issues that can arise from a subpar cleaning, knowing the right technique is important. If you want to make sure you are handling your contact lens cleaning the best way possible, here’s what you need to do. 

Wash Your Hands 

Before you hand your contact lenses, you need to wash your hands. Use an antibacterial soap and make sure to rinse thoroughly. Also, dry your hands with a lint-free towel to make sure you don’t get any fabric particles on your lenses or in your eyes. 

Use the Rub and Rinse Method 

Even if your solution says that it’s “no rub,” the rub and rinse cleaning approach is still a better option. It ensures that debris that may be stuck to each lens is removed, providing a superior clean. 

Begin by taking one lens and placing it in the palm of your non-dominant hand. You want to edge of the lens to be up, like an upright cup. 

Place a few drops of fresh cleaning solution (not just saline) on your palm next to the lens as well as directly on the lens. Next, use the fingers of your dominant hand to gently rub the contact. Make sure you don’t use your fingernails when you rub as that can damage the lens. 

Then, rinse the lens with fresh, sterile solution. Finally, put the lens in the case to soak and repeat the process with your other lens. 

Long-Term Contact Lens Storage 

If you are going to keep your lenses in a case for an extended period, then you may need to re-disinfect them before you wear them. Review the instructions that came with your contacts and your solution to see if they have a timeline for re-disinfection. 

No matter what, if your lenses have been stored for 30 days or more, go through a re-disinfection process. Or, if you are using disposable lenses that are designed to last a month or less, switch to a new pair and throw the old ones out. 

Replace Your Lenses According to the Instructions 

Even if you are exceptionally good at cleaning your lenses, you still need to throw them away and open a new pair according to the manufacturer’s instructions. The material is only designed to handle so much wear and tear, so waiting could mean putting a damaged lens in your eye. Plus, soft contact lenses can end up with deposit build ups or other forms of contamination, increasing your risk of infection if you exceed the recommended amount of time. 

Keep Your Case Clean Too 

Proper contact lens care also includes cleaning your case. Otherwise, the case can become a source of contamination, potentially leading to an infection. You can use sterile solution to clean your case every time you remove your lenses. Then, leave it open so that it can dry during the day. 

Additionally, replace your case every three months. If it becomes cracked or damaged, start using a new case right away. 

If you are interested in getting contact lenses or your prescription may be out of date, schedule an appointment at your nearest ECVA clinic today. Our skilled team works diligently to ensure your eye health by performing thorough exams, correcting vision issues, and providing customized treatment options designed to meet the needs of our patients. 

Cataract Surgery 101: Everything You Need to Know About the Procedure

While hearing that you have cataracts and need surgery can be scary, the condition is surprisingly common and fairly easy to treat. Many older people will have cataracts at some point during their golden years. But, by undergoing cataract surgery, their vision can usually be restored.

A cataract is a form of clouding that happens on the eye’s lens and is usually a normal part of the aging process. The condition causes vision loss that can’t be fixed with corrective lenses or corneal refractive surgeries.

However, modern cataract surgery is a highly effective procedure and is also very safe. If you need cataract surgery, here’s everything you need to know about the procedure.

Before Your Cataract Surgery

Ahead of your cataract surgery, your ophthalmologist will measure your eye. This allows them to determine the right focusing power for your intraocular lens (IOL), the artificial lens that will be placed to correct your vision.

You may also get a prescription for medicated eye drops. The drops will help reduce swelling and prevent infection after your procedure.

Your Cataract Surgery

Cataract removal surgery is usually an outpatient procedure. You won’t have to stay overnight at a hospital. Instead, you’ll be allowed to go home once your ophthalmologist clears you after the procedure.

When its time to begin your cataract surgery, a numbing eyedrop or injection is used to numb your eye. You may also be given medications that help you relax, ensuring you remain comfortable during the procedure.

You are awake during cataract removal surgery. While you’ll be able to see light and movement while the procedure is underway, you won’t be able to see what your ophthalmologist is doing to the eye.

Once your eye is numb, your ophthalmologist will examine your eye with a specialized microscope. Then, small incisions are made near your cornea’s edge, allowing your surgeon to reach the lens. Using specialized instruments, your ophthalmologist removes the lens with the cataract after breaking it into small pieces. Once removed, your surgeon places your IOL.

In most cases, stitches aren’t necessary to close the incision. Instead, it will “self-seal,” closing on its own with a little bit of time. Your ophthalmologist will place a shield over your eye, ensuring it stays protected after the procedure. Then, you’ll be taken to recovery, where you’ll rest for about 30 minutes. After that, you can typically go home.

Cataract Surgery Recovery

The recovery process for cataract surgery is fairly simple. You’ll use special eye drops to promote healing. Additionally, you’ll have to take special care around your eyes.

For example, you want to avoid getting water or soap in your eye. You also shouldn’t rub or press on the eye. To make that easier and to further keep your eyes safe, your ophthalmologist might have you wear a shield or eyeglasses for protection.

Your surgeon will also let you know if you need to avoid certain activities – like exercising or driving – until you are fully healed. They will tell you when you should be able to participate in those activities again.

Once healing is complete, your vision will typically be as good, if not better, than it was before the appearance of the cataract. Many IOLs can correct near- or farsightedness, so you may not need a corrective lens for that eye once the healing process is finished.

Ultimately, cataract removal surgery is generally a safe procedure. Before taking part, your ophthalmologist will discuss any risks and considerations you need to be aware of, allowing you to make a decision regarding whether you feel the surgery is right for you.

If you haven’t had your vision checked recently or are looking for an ophthalmologist to perform cataract surgery, schedule an appointment at your nearest ECVA clinic today. Our skilled team works diligently to ensure your eye health, performing thorough exams, allowing vision issues to be corrected, and providing treatment options designed to meet the needs of our patients whenever the need arises.
