Q&A with Dr. McVey | Dry Eyes
Dry eye can cause quite a few symptoms, anything from the eyes actually feeling dry to the eyes watering often, or having a burning, itchy, or irritated feeling. One of the most common symptoms is the eyes feeling gritty or like something is in your eye. Most people will often experience blurred vision since the tears, which comprise the outermost surface of the eye, are unstable.
Dry eye is multi-factorial, and each person’s dry eye is unique to them. To help prevent dry eye, make sure to consume 8 to 10 glasses of water per day to avoid dehydration. Some nutritional supplements, such as fish oil and flax seed oil, can contribute to a more stable tear layer.
Remember to blink regularly and take breaks often when on a computer, cell phone or when watching television. During times of the year when there is less humidity, a humidifier might be helpful to provide more moisture in the air.
About Dr. McVey
Dr. McVey decided to be an optometrist when she was 16 years old in Kingman, Arizona. She has been working as an optometrist in Glendale for over twenty years.
Dr. McVey really loves what she does because of the close personal relationships that develop over the years of seeing patients and their families. One of the best days of her career was when she realized that the child she was examining was the great-grandchild of another one of her patients.
Dr. McVey is especially excited about the new office that she was able to design herself. She feels it is comfortable, inviting and incorporates her love of the outdoors.
