Understanding Dry Eye Syndrome
Dry eye syndrome (DES) is more than occasional discomfort. It occurs when there is a disruption in the delicate balance between tear production and drainage. This imbalance leads to unpleasant symptoms, including itching, burning, redness, and even eye pain.
When there is a disruption in the delicate balance between tear production and drainage, it affects the three essential layers of the tear film:
Environmental factors, age, and certain medical conditions can contribute to the development of dry eye.
At Shelburne Primary EyeCare, our optometrists, Dr. Colette Whiting and Dr. Sandra Gillis-Kennedy, diagnose the root cause of your dry eyes and provide solutions for lasting relief.

If any of these symptoms resonate with you, it’s time to seek help:
- Gritty, itchy, or stinging eyes
- Excessive tearing and discharge
- Eyes that feel tired or dry
- Increased light sensitivity
