Don't Ignore Dry Eye
Millions of people suffer from chronic dry eye. In fact, the older you get the more the chance increases that you could get dry eye. It may not seem like a big deal, but dry eye is not to be ignored.
If you find yourself dealing with the symptoms of dry eye (stinging or burning, scratchiness, stringy mucus around the eye, discomfort from wearing contact lenses) you need to make sure you notify your eye doctor to address the symptoms and the cause.
Luckily, there are many ways to treat dry eye and it's a manageable condition. Where we caution our Phenix City patients is to make sure they are dealing with it in a timely manner as to avoid further complications.
