Your overall health, medications, age, allergies, environmental air quality, pollution and ozone, and exposure to high energy visible light (HEVL) all play a part in what is commonly referred to as Dry Eye Disease (DED). Tumwater Eye Center is passionate about finding the correct reason you have DED, and then providing you with appropriate treatment options. Over the counter artificial tears are rarely the only or best solution. Simple home therapy options or even the correct glasses prescription for computer use may keep you symptom free. Alternatively, prescription medications and/or in-office treatments may be needed to alleviate severe symptoms.
