You know that the harsh winter winds and dry air can wreak havoc on your skin and hair, but have you considered what they do to your eyes? If your eyes have been burning, itching, red or have experienced a foreign body sensation, you may be experiencing symptoms of dry eyes. Between 10-15% of Americans experience dry eyes and this number is rising due to the increase of computer, tablet and smart phone use.
What can you do?
- Make a conscious effort to blink often when using electronic devices
- Get a humidifier for your home and/or office
- Protect your eyes from severe winds
