What Is Dry Eye Syndrome? Dry eye is a condition in which the body produces an insufficient quantity or quality of tears. Without tears, the eyes are not adequately lubricated, causing a gritty sensation. A majority of dry eye cases involve the meibomian glands, which secrete lipids (oils) to slow the evaporation of tears. When the meibomian glands malfunction or become plugged, tears evaporate too quickly and cannot lubricate the eyes properly.
Primary open-angle glaucoma is the most common variant, accounting for more than 90 percent of all cases. Initially it only affects peripheral vision, and its effects are gradual, making it difficult to diagnose without comprehensive testing. By the time most patients notice the associated vision changes, permanent damage has already occurred. There are other, less common types of glaucoma including normal-tension glaucoma, congenital glaucoma and secondary glaucoma. Through comprehensive eye testing that measures peripheral vision, the pressure in your eye, optic nerve health, the thickness of your cornea and fluid drainage, our glaucoma specialists can identify your specific type and develop a custom treatment plan designed to save your vision.
