Do you ever feel like your eyes are staging a rebellion? Constant itching, burning, or a feeling of something stuck in your eye? That's your eyes saying, "Hey! We need a little hydration over here!" Dry eyes can be more than just a fleeting discomfort. They can actually interfere with daily life. Let's unravel dry eyes and explore how our state-of-the-art technology at Kagan Institute, led by Dr. Kagan, is providing much-needed relief.
At the most basic level, dry eye is the result of your eyes not producing enough tears, or the tears evaporating too quickly. This can be due to a multitude of factors including age, environment, and even some medications.
At our office, we utilize advanced diagnostic equipment that can measure the quality and quantity of your tears. Through microscopic examinations and imaging, we can pinpoint the exact reason behind your dry eyes. It's a fascinating blend of technology and biology that helps Dr. Kagan prescribe the most effective treatment.
Relief from Discomfort: The primary benefit is, of course, relief from the persistent discomfort and irritation caused by dry eyes.
Improved Vision: Dry eyes can actually cause blurry vision. Treating it can help you see clearly again.
