Dr. Cohn Answers Your Eyecare Questions

Click on the question to read the answer.

Q. When I wear my contacts, at the end of a long day, my eyes are usually dry and uncomfortable. What can I do to alleviate this problem?

Dr. Cohn: Dry eyes is a common problem that is often associated with bothersome ocular symptoms, fluctuating vision, and contact lens discomfort. Dry eye syndrome (DES) is generally considered a disorder of the tear film due to either diminished tear production or excessive tear evaporation. The tear film lubricates and hydrates the contact lens and is therefore essential to contact lens comfort. Artificial tears is the mainstay therapy and using a lipid based one will supplement the deficient component of the tears.We believe that using daily Disposable lenses like Accuvue, Trueye and Dailies Total 1, can help to reduce these symptoms.

Q. I’m almost 50 and lately I noticed that I can’t read the small print on the cereal box. What’s happening to my eyes?

Dr. Cohn: You probably have presbyopia which affects people ofyour age, causing you to lose your ability to see things up close. You may need glasses for reading and computer use. Not a cause for alarm, it happens to almost everybody at some point- an eye exam can confirm that this is the cause.
