Dry Eye Symptoms

Dry Eye Symptoms

Everyone gets eye irritation at some point in their lives – from dust in the eyes, air borne allergens, loose eyelashes, etc.
For some people eye irritation is a daily occurrence, making it challenging to enjoy life due to constant discomfort.

Common Dry Eye Symptoms.

If you experience the following symptoms on a regular basis, you may want to visit a dry eye specialist to determine
what type of dry eye treatment options exist to get relief from:

  • Excessive watering/tearing
  • Itching
  • Stinging
  • Redness
  • Light sensitivity
  • Eye fatigue
  • Blurry vision
  • Stringy mucus

Products like over-the-counter eye drops may provide temporary relief by adding lubrication to the eyes. However, if
you have a certain type of dry eye where the eyelid glands become blocked, products like artificial tears will have no
effect (money wasted).

Prolonged dry eye may actually begin to affect your vision, especially if the symptoms are due to damage or
inflammation of the eye’s surface (cornea). Repeated friction between a dry eye and the eyelids can cause further
damage to the corneal surface.

The good news is that the  San Fransico dry eye specialists at Mosaddegh Eye Institute can help. Contact Mosaddegh Eye Institute today
to schedule an eye exam and find out the root cause of your dry eye symptoms so proper treatment can be started.

Dear patient,

As people practice social distancing in response to the COVID-19 public health emergency, we want you to know that your health is still a priority for us. We are implementing a telehealth program so that we may continue to serve our patients during this difficult time.

If you have healthcare needs in the coming weeks, including routine follow-up appointment, or even refilling for a prescription, please reach out to our office to schedule a virtual appointment. We will first screen to see if the visit can be completed remotely. Many of the services that we provide can be performed through audio or live audio-visual communications, such as FaceTime and Skype.

For visits that cannot be completed remotely, our clinic is now open for patients to be seen in the office. We are working to implement measures to maintain social distancing and keep everyone safe during this time.

· Mandatory Masking- All patients and visitors are responsible to provide and wear their own mask upon entry. Pt will have to be rescheduled otherwise.

· Isolation- Anyone with COVID-19 symptoms is isolated from waiting areas, patient rooms,. Entrances, and any spaces that the general population uses. No escorting members are allowed into the clinic with the patient, with the only exception being an essential caretaker.

· Cleaning- Our teams are performing extra cleaning and disinfecting in all spaces.

· Employee Screening- We’ve instituted mandatory employee temperature screenings before each shift.

Thank you for your cooperation, and please stay safe.
