Posted by: Arbor Centers for Eye Care in General

The winter season is now in full swing! The chilling effects of the colder months, your environment, and your wardrobe are not the only parts of your life that need winter preparation; our bodies and health are often affected just as much by the winter changes.

Dry, cool air, cold winds, and even drier indoor heating can cause eye irritation, burning, itchiness, redness, and sometimes even excessively watery eyes as more tears are produced to compensate for the dryness. Many people have a chronic feeling that they have something in their eye, and some even experience blurred vision. These symptoms can be debilitating!

Dry eyes are among the most common complaints eye doctors get from patients during the winter season. While it is difficult to avoid dry eyes altogether in the winter months, there are several steps that you can take to ensure that your eyes stay as hydrated and healthy as possible this winter season.

Helpful Tips To Relieve Winter Dry Eyes

A dry eye can signify many eye conditions ranging from mild to severe. Be sure to see your eye care professional for an annual screening and discuss any symptoms you experience. If these essential tips don’t help alleviate your dry eyes, make an appointment today. Our eye doctors can examine your eyes and help determine the quality and amount of tear production through specialized testing.
