Getting the right prescription for your eyeglasses or contact lenses is an important part of good eye care. However, even if your vision is clear, it is important to have regular eye exams with an optometrist.

All the staff at Dolman's are friendly and efficient. When I couldn't wear new glasses that they made for me, they replaced them free of charge, even though it was not due to any mistake. I recommend them to anyone looking for eye specialists.

Q&A with Dr. Dolman | Let Dr. Dolman answer some of your eyecare questions

Q: When should a person come in to see their optometrist for Dry Eye symptoms and when is it enough to take care of this problem yourself?

If your symptoms are more than just an occasional annoyance, we can guide you toward more effective and lasting relief.

Q: Is it true that Dry Eye symptoms seem to be more severe in the winter than in the warmer spring and summer months?

Yes. Our home and workplace tend to have very low humidity during the winter months. And the constant running of the fan in our car to defrost the windows also contributes to dry eye symptoms.

Q: What is the examination like to determine whether someone is suffering from Dry Eyes?

A thorough analysis of the surface of your eyes and the quality of your tear film will help us to assess the extent of your dry eye syndrome.

Q: I have a friend in whose eyes are frequently overly watery. That isn't Dry Eye, is it?

Excessive reflex tearing is often the most misunderstood symptom of dry eye syndrome. The irritation experienced with dry eye syndrome typically causes reflex tearing, but these tears are runny and spill onto the cheeks.

Q: What are the typical treatments used to help people suffering from Dry Eyes?

Awareness of dry eye syndrome is an important first step to treating the symptoms. A magical cure does not exist! It’s often a combination of warm compresses (10 minutes at a time), better blinking (more frequent, complete blinks especially when reading) and the right choice of artificial tears that help to relieve symptoms.

Q: Are some people more prone to having Dry Eyes than others?

Studies have shown that we blink 43% less often while looking at a screen (computer, tablet, or phone). Moreover, the quality of our tears tends to decline as we get older. And certain medication can lead to a worsening of dry eye symptoms.

Q: Do you have any recommendations for people to help them avoid Dry Eye issues?

Put the word “Blink” on a post-it note and attach it to your phone or monitor at work. ☺ In all seriousness, better blink hygiene (more frequent and complete blinks) will go a long way to reducing symptoms. We’re happy to assess your eyes to let you know the extent of irritation to the surface and guide you toward some relief.
