Dr. A.S. Desai :

Hello, Welcome to

Dr. A.S. Desai :

You can consult an ophthalmologist for the eye pain as a detailed eye exam will help to get down to the root cause of your symptoms. In the meanwhile you can start putting lubricating eye drops such as preservative free Refresh tears eye drops, 1 drop 4 times a day . This would help to curb the symptoms in case these are due to dry eyes.Dry eyes can occur from involvement of any of the 3 layers of the tear film. The tear film has 3 layers- aqueous, lipid and mucin. The most frquent layer to be affected is the aqueous layer. It is seen due to increased evapouration of tears as can be seen with excessive hours in front of the laptop/computer/television or long hours of continous reading or writing. It can also be precipitated by excessive exposure to air conditioning or even very hot and humid climate. The treatment is in the form of tear supplements as mentioned above.
