If you are suffering from any type of eye problem, you should visit our optometrist, Dr. Imran Hussain, at Eyewear Studio. Whatever type of eye symptoms you have, including itchy eyes, you will want to have eye testing performed by our optometrist to determine the cause of your itchy eyes Niagara Falls.
Itchy eyes Niagara Falls can be caused by many different reasons. Sometimes a person is simply exposed to allergens and this can make their eyes itchy. If this is the case, our optometrist can let you know exactly what can be done to solve your itchy eye problem. However, having itchy eyes can also be the sign of a more serious eye disease such as an eye infection from contact lens wear. If you have irritated and itchy eyes, you may have dry eye. Dry eye is not a serious vision problem unless it is left untreated. If this is the case, you may end up with damage to your cornea. The important thing to remember is that whenever you are experiencing itchy eyes, you should visit our Eyewear Studio so that your itchy eyes can be treated. If it is determined that you have dry eye, our optometrist can provide you with a prescription for medicated eye drops, or oral medicine. Sometimes dry eye can be easily treated with over-the-counter eye drops. If you wear contact lenses, and you have a common contact lens infection, keratitis, it is very important that you see our optometrist for treatment. This is because keratitis can cause serious vision problems, including vision loss, if left untreated. Sometimes contact lenses get bacteria on them and cause keratitis. Other times, patients develop this eye infection when they either put in their contacts, or remove their contacts, while their hands are dirty. In any event, our eye doctor can determine the exact reason for your itchy eyes.
