Q&A with Dr. John Maurillo | Dry Eyes?

Q: Are some people more prone to having Dry Eyes than others?
A: People who suffer from allergies, or have systemic inflammatory diseases like arthritis and Sjogren's tend to be more susceptible to developing dry eye syndrome. Certain medications cause dry eyes as a side effect. Aging and being a woman, are both risk factors for dry eye syndrome too.

Q: What can cause Dry Eye?
A: Age, gender (female) and certain medications can cause dry eye symptoms. Other dry eye risk factors include work environment (dry offices or factories), the weather, and geographical location.

Q: How do I know if I have Dry Eye?
A: Dry eye syndrome can only be diagnosed by an eye doctor. We take your symptoms into account, including the eyes feeling dry, burning, itchy or irritated. Watery eyes and blurry vision are also common because the tears, which protect the outermost surface of the eye, can be unstable.

Eyewear can be a confidence booster!

Whether you want contact lenses or glasses, we make sure that you get both what looks good, but more importantly what works for your personal situation as well. We at Village Visions stand behind our products by knowing we offer high-quality eyewear manufactured by smaller, independent companies. We are continuously inspired by the beauty and individuality of handmade frames and the science and technology behind eye health and vision improvement.

We also ensure our employees are constantly learning and growing within this dynamic field.
