Relocate to Wisconsin : When Wet is Dry...It Can be In Your Eye...

When Wet is Dry...It Can be In Your Eye...

    Did you ever have episodes of watery eyes..and it is not allergy season...you don't have a cold....your eyes water like eye wateringfountains and vision is blurred....you adjust the image on your computer to "extra large" and still...the blurring continues. To the outside world...it may appear as if you have been on a binge...drinking, crying...but in reality ...none of those things are true. It looks horrible and feels as though you have an eyelash or foreign matter floating around that refuses to be caught...or have flipped a soft contact lens inside out. 

   None of those things may be true...instead what may be the problem is "dry eye." Dry you say...?  But your eye is wet....Wet yes...but the wrong kind of wet.  Without going into sophisticated medical terms and explanations which is our province of knowledge ..tears.there are two kinds of tears.  

      One kind is a lubricant...a sort of  "oil that keeps your eye 'running'".  The other is the watery, teary, running variety. The oily variety is what we all need to keep our corneas healthy and eyesight clear. You may also find that your eyes are more sensitive light and sunglasses are needed more frequently and you reach for the dimmer switch even when indoors.

     This is called DRY EYE....it can sometimes be attributed to hours at the computer...an insufficient production of oily tears...and the resulting annoying vision distortion.

    Like the common cold...at this juncture there is no cure..no magic pill cure. There are lots of eye drops....we suggest trying the over the counter varieties that say "gel" and using the PM labeled drops at night for additional lubrication.

     This is a public service/be healthy announcement brought  to you by the Hansons...wishing you a bright eyed and prosperous day !

Hi Sally.  I have that problem also.  I put refresh in my eyes several times a day.

When my eyes are wet, I know why.....and they aren't dry too often.  I think you catch my drift.

My assistant went to the eye doctor last week and that was her diagnosis. She got some computer glassess and over the counter drops. It can be very annoying.

Interesting read, Sally and DAvid. I have this issue every now and then. I m off to the optometrist soon so will have to check. Definitely not cold or allergies, or anything in the eye!

I hear spring is coming soon.  I know someone who will be gladsome.

And wet eyed at the gift.

Sally and David dry eye does not sound like something I would want to experience, sounds painful.

 Good morning Sally K. & David L. Hanson . Dry eye is not something I think that I would like to have either. It does sound painful.
