dry eye

There are a few reasons why you could develop dry eye syndrome. The most common is growing older. By the age of 65, most people will be experiencing some symptoms of dry eye. As we grow older, decreased hormone production can lead to a dysfunction in tear production. Other causes can be certain lifestyle choices, such as smoking, or environmental issues such as being in a dry and windy climate. Even staring too long at a computer screen can cause dry eye syndrome.

Diagnosing dry eye syndrome is not as easy as simply realizing you have dry eyes. There could be contributing factors that need to be examined by your doctor. Contact Dr. Swanic, and the team at Las Vegas Eye Institute today to schedule your exam.

Glaucoma is a disease that causes damage to the optic nerve, which results in permanent vision loss. If you are over the age of 40, have a family history of glaucoma, are nearsighted, farsighted, or of African American or Hispanic heritage, you are more susceptible and should be examined yearly to ensure that if glaucoma develops, it is caught early on.

Glaucoma occurs when the pressure inside of your eye (called intraocular pressure) becomes too high. This increase in pressure is generally due to a build-up of fluid inside of the eye. The increase in pressure causes the eye to press against the optic nerve, resulting in severe and permanent damage.
