Dry Eyes at Center for Sight serving Fall River, Massachusetts and greater Providence, Rhode Island

By Keegan Johnson, M.D.

Dry Eyes or Dry Eye Syndrome is one of the most common eye problems we encounter at Center for Sight. This is consistent with the fact that scientists estimate that in the United States alone, 20-30 million people have mild symptoms of dry eye and another 6 million women and 3 million men have moderate or severe symptoms of dry eye.

When most people think about having dry eyes, they mainly think about the common symptoms that cause discomfort such as dryness, grittiness or burning and do not even realize that in order to have normal vision, it is critical to have a sufficient quantity of healthy tears on the surface of the eye at all times.

The physicians and staff of Center for Sight will use every necessary diagnostic procedure to help identify the source of your dry eyes and offer you the best possible solution.
