Luckily, there are several simple ways that you can combat dry eyes during the winter months. Here are our tips for keeping your vision clear and your eyes moisturized during the cold winter season ahead:
- Sunglasses to shield your eyes from the drying elements and decrease the evaporation of your tear film.
- Humidifier to maintain a healthy level of moisture in your home.
- Lubricating eye drops help to supplement your tear film and heal damaged tissue. Because there are so many over-the-counter artificial tear brands to choose from, make sure that you ask Dr. Byers to ensure that you are using drops that are suitable for your condition.
The winter season can be a great time to get outside and soak up the smells and sights of the season. However, make sure that you follow these simple steps for combating dry eyes to make sure that you do not fall victim to the hazards of the cold, dry winter weather.
