Dry eye can make you feel frustrated, unproductive and uncomfortable.
The fatigue, visual disturbances and discomfort can interfere with your quality of life. As a side effect, it can hinder you during social events and at work, making it hard for you to establish meaningful relationships and progress in your career.
Studies show that this persistent setback causes anxiety and depression.
Simple everyday tasks can be hard to perform. Using the computer, reading at night, and driving can be exhausting. Your dry eyes may prevent you from engaging in outdoor activities and meeting new people.
Perhaps you’d like to wear contact lenses, but they exacerbate the dryness, leaving glasses as your only option.
You may have noticed that you’re becoming impatient and struggling to concentrate on your work. You probably want to be able to have a pleasant catch-up with friends, without the attention always being brought back to your gritty, stinging, irritated eyes.
After dry eye treatment, you are no longer vulnerable to eye infection or damage. Therefore you can embrace long walks, relax in front of the TV and cook a nice meal without the itching, watering and eye rubbing.
Lastly, friends, family and colleagues will notice that you are less distracted, more engaged, and no longer embarrassed by those awful red and angry-looking eyes.
