Burning, pain, and redness in your eyes can be a sign of dry eye syndrome.
Dry eye may be a symptom of worse problems on the horizon, such as inflammation and corneal scarring.
At Ohio Vision, our doctors in Sidney, Troy, Celina, and Bellefontaine, OH, can help you return to a comfortable life free from dry eye.
What Is Dry Eye?
Dry eye syndrome is a condition in which you do not produce enough tears or produce tears of such poor quality that they cannot properly protect or moisten the eyes. When dry eye syndrome occurs, people experience a variety of dry eye issues.
Signs You May Have Dry Eye Syndrome
Occasional eye irritation does not necessarily indicate dry eye syndrome. However, you may have dry eye syndrome if you persistently experience the following:
- Eye pain
- Heavy eyes
- Blurred vision
- Watery tearing
- Eye exhaustion
- Light sensitivity
- Stringy eye mucus
- Sand feeling in eyes
If the above dry eye symptoms sound familiar, our doctors in Bellefontaine, Celina, Sidney, and Troy can determine if you need treatment at an in-person appointment.

Sometimes the contact lenses you use can contribute to dry eyes by preventing tear lubrication. When dry eyes become more severe, the condition can even prevent you from wearing contact lenses at all. Many patients prefer contacts over glasses and do not want to lose the ability to wear them. Our doctors can evaluate your contacts and see if a softer lens may help alleviate your dry eyes and allow healthy contact use.
How We Perform Dry Eye Treatments
We can treat your dry eyes with artificial tears, surgical care, and other methods.

The office staff were great! Very helpful with insurance and what to expect coming in. Dr. Wilding is very comforting and fun to be around. For my procedure he was very good with explaining what he was doing and what to expect. He has a very good "bnedside manner"!View on Google
