What is “Dry Eye”?

As Defined by the National Eye Institute.
Dry eye occurs when the eye does not produce tears properly, or when the tears are not of the correct consistency and evaporate too quickly.

In addition, inflammation of the surface of the eye may occur along with dry eye. If left untreated, this condition can lead to pain, ulcers, or scars on the cornea, and some loss of vision. However, permanent loss of vision from dry eye is uncommon.

Dry eye can make it more difficult to perform some activities, such as using a computer or reading for an extended period of time, and it can decrease tolerance for dry environments, such as the air inside an airplane.

What are the symptoms of “Dry Eye”?

  • stinging or burning of the eye
  • a sandy or gritty feeling as if something is in the eye
  • episodes of excess tears following very dry eye periods
  • pain and redness of the eye
  • fluctuating and blurry vision
  • heavy eyelids
  • itchy eyes
  • uncomfortable contact lenses
  • decreased tolerance of reading, working on the computer, or any activity that requires sustained visual attention
  • eye fatigue

COVID-19 Office Reopening

We are scheduling routine eye exams again.  We have missed our patients, and are very excited to safely get back into the swing of things after our temporary pause due to Covid-19.  Give us a call at 918-745-9700.

Rest assured, we have developed new office protocols to protect the health and safety of our patients and our staff.  For the time being, we will be lengthening the time between patient appointments with the goal of having only one patient in the office at a time.  We will check the temperature of every person entering our office.  Thorough disinfection will take place after every patient.  We will be wearing protective equipment and ask all patients to wear face coverings into the office.  We are asking that patients do not bring any family or guests with them into the office (unless the patient is a minor or requires a caregiver).  Please make appointments for glasses adjustments and dispensing to assure social distancing is observed.  Lastly, if you or a member of your household is ill, please reschedule your appointment.

We will be monitoring conditions and recommendations and will update our policies accordingly.

Thank you,

Andrea Dudley, OD and staff
