Q. My eyes are dry and itchy. How can I get relief?
Dr. Chen: If your eyes are dry and itchy it could be a symptom of an allergy, or due to cosmetics, medication or hormonal changes. It could also be caused by looking at a computer screen for too long or wearing a pair of contact lenses for too long. There are also other environmental factors including spending time outdoors in a warm sunny place, sitting near air vents, sleeping under a ceiling fan or just being an extended time in a dry heated room. Please come in for a consultation so we can narrow down the cause for your symptoms and prescribe a specific course of treatment to alleviate your condition.
