Causes of Dry Eye
The underlying causes of dry eye depend on several factors, including your current age and health. A doctor evaluates your needs and then recommends treatment based on the reasons for the discomfort.
Common causes of the condition include:
- Natural aging
- Taking a medication
- Certain medical conditions
- Laser eye surgery
- Problems with your eyelids
- Rarely blinking
- Hot weather
A doctor of ophthalmology evaluates the underlying reasons for the discomfort before recommending a treatment plan. At Brimhall Eye, we use appropriate treatments based on your specific needs and situation.

Treatment from Our Las Vegas Ophthalmologist
Generally, a treatment plan for dry eyes depends on the situation. We may recommend simple treatments, like using eye drops to add moisture when the discomfort stems from dry weather conditions, or we may recommend more complex treatments. Our ophthalmologist evaluates the situation before recommending a solution to limit the risks and keep your eyes healthy.
The treatments we may recommend start with the simplest options. We usually use eye drops for additional moisture. Some eye drops may also contain medication if your eyes require certain medications. Alternatively, we recommend oral medications or treatments. Since it may also stem from problems with your eyelids, we may provide treatment for eyelid mites or offer surgery for your eyes or eyelids in certain situations.
