Alleviating Dry Eye: Personalized Treatments in Cypress

Dry eye affects around 20 million people in the United States, impacting daily life and vision for millions. Crystal Eyecare’s tailored solutions and advanced treatments aim to relieve symptoms, ensuring you see the world clearly and comfortably.

What is Dry Eye Syndrome?

Dry eye syndrome (DES) occurs when your eyes either don't produce enough tears or the quality of the tears is inadequate, leading to discomfort, irritation, and potential vision problems.

The two primary types of dry eye are:

1. Evaporative Dry Eye:
This type occurs when the tears evaporate too quickly due to factors like meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD). These glands are responsible for producing the oily layer of tears that helps prevent evaporation.

2. Aqueous-Deficient Dry Eye:
This type results from inadequate production of watery tears by the lacrimal glands. Aging, certain medical conditions, or side effects of medications can cause it.

Dry eye can also be classified based on duration:

1. Chronic Dry Eye:
Persistent condition requiring ongoing management.

2. Episodic Dry Eye:
Occasional episodes of dryness, often triggered by environmental factors or specific activities.
