Dry eye strikes when your eyes can’t produce enough tears for lubrication or the moisture in your tears evaporates too quickly. Common symptoms include a feeling of grittiness in your eyes, a sensation of something in your eye or burning, eye fatigue, eye pain, and excessive tearing.

Visit our Dry Eye Center’s page.

Daily Disposables Are A Great Option

woman-with-contact-lens

Dr. Alan Schlussel indicates that the more frequently you replace your lens, the more comfortable and healthy it will be for your eyes. Over time, many substances accumulate and build up in your lenses. These substances could be dust, pollen or calcium, lipids and proteins present in your tears. The presence of these substances would have a negative impact on the comfort level of your lenses. Also, it also increases the chances for infections. Click here to learn more.

Q&A with Dr. Law

Dr. Law Answers Your Eye Care Questions

Why is my child having trouble reading and concentrating on schoolwork?

Your child may have an underlying refractive issue, such as farsightedness, nearsightedness or an astigmatism that maybe be causing blurred vision, thus making it hard for your child to concentrate and focus. There may also binocular issues, which is how well the two eyes work together, and focusing issues, that may affect a child’s schoolwork. When working with your child, we will evaluate the child’s visual system including their binocular systems and accommodative systems to determine if his/her vision may be playing a role in their academic performance or sports performance.
