Weather, Dry Eye And Allergies

A subset of various brands of artificial tears...

I’m hoping that this warmer weather is helping some of my worst Dry Eye patients with the slight increase in environmental humidity and the lower frequency of furnace running.  But I wonder what all of this heavy melt this early in the winter (it still is winter) will do when it comes to the early spring allergy season.  Last year was a bear thanks to the tree pollen levels, hopefully we won’t have a repeat of last year’s spring allergy season.

Remember, if you’re a Dry Eye patient, keep using your artificial tears as prescribed, even if your eyes are feeling pretty good right now.  If you wait for symptoms to strike, you’ve let your eyes get too dry and stay dry for too long!
