How Can an Optometrist Help?
Our optometrists will examine your eyes to determine the root cause of your eye irritation. We will do so by conducting an eye exam and conducting vision tests to assess the state of your eyes.
Our optometrists will conduct various tests, such as dilating your eyes, which will allow them to examine the deeper structures of your eye. Once our optometrists determine the root cause of your eye irritation, we will recommend various treatment options for your eye irritation, including:
- Eye drops for eye irritation caused by dry eyes
- Eyeglasses or contact lenses to correct vision disorder that can cause eye irritation and blurry vision
- Recommendations for computer eye syndrome, such as changing habits while sitting in front of a computer
- Lifestyle advice for dry eyes caused by allergies, such as taking allergy medication and avoiding allergens
Should I Get Help from an Eye Doctor?
If your eye irritation does not go away on its own, it's essential to visit an eye doctor for help. This is especially true if your eye irritation is accompanied by more severe symptoms, such as eye pain, headaches, or blurry vision. These can indicate serious eye disorders that need to be treated immediately.
