Although everyone claims to have “dry-feeling” eyes on occasion, dry eye is actually a disease. Left untreated it can lead to permanent vision damage. Eyes without proper lubrication are also susceptible to scratches which may lead to infection. At Bower Place Eye Center, we can help diagnose any issues you may be having and come up with a solution for managing those uncomfortable symptoms. Alas, Alberta’s dry climate does not do any favours for people suffering from dry eye syndrome.
