Aqueous deficient dry eye (ADDE) refers to an eye condition in which you experience dry eyes because your tear glands produce insufficient or poor quality tears to moisten your eyes.
If you live near St. George, UT, and are experiencing eye irritation and discomfort, Dr. Aaron Smith and our team at Stone Canyon Eye Care can help reduce and alleviate the symptoms of aqueous deficient dry eyes. Our “optometrist near me” is here to help.
What Are the Symptoms of Aqueous Deficiency?
Tear glands release a combination of fluids, oils, and mucus to protect and lubricate your eyes. Without sufficient moisture, the result can be uncomfortable symptoms and even potential eye damage if left untreated. The following common symptoms of aqueous deficiency include:
● Itchy eyes
● Burning or stinging sensation
● Eye pain
● Blurred vision
● Stringy mucous
● Challenges wearing contact lenses for any length of time
● Eye fatigue – from reading or extensive screen time
