I recently went to the optometrist to have an eye examination as i was experiencing eye problems. I was check for glaucoma and my IOP was normal. He also dilated my pupils to see if i had an retinal/tear issues. Everything was fine. After i told him my main symptoms that i experienced most(itchy, gritty feeling, watery eyes). He diagnosed me with moderate dry eye. There were a few more questions i had but didnt get ask my optometrist. Ive had a little concern and ive been wondering if these other symptoms could be related to the dry eye.
1. Does dry eye cause tired eyes? It seems when i put my eyes to any kind of work, mainly when im on the computer. They seem to get tired quite fast and causes my vision to become blurred.
2. I wake up every morning with foggy filmed vision. It usually clears up after blinking a bit and washing my face. Could this be something else or mpart of the dry eye?
3. I was giving lubricating eye drops, they seem to calm the dry eye temporarely. How long does dry eye normally last while being treated?
