Dry Eye Prevention

What Can You Do To Prevent Dry Eye?

It is not always possible to prevent dry eye; however, you may be able to identify certain triggers that irritate your condition.

Try these tips to minimize the effects of dry eye:

  • Allergy testing: Our Atlanta dry eye specialists can test you for certain allergens that may aggravate your dry eyes.
  • Vitamins: Nutraceuticals may help prevent dry eye.
  • Humidifiers: Add moisture to your home or office air.
  • Eye breaks: If you work for long periods on a computer or other visual tasks, try incorporating the 20/20/20 routine. Every 20 minutes, take a 20 second break and look at something 20 feet away.
  • Remember to blink often.
  • Sunglasses: Wear wrap-around sunglasses when outdoors to block wind and foreign debris from getting into your eyes.
  • Stop smoking: Avoid direct or secondhand smoke.
  • Wind and fans: Avoid air positioned directly at your eyes from wind, fans or hair dryers.
  • Artificial tears: These over-the-counter products may provide temporary relief.
