About Dry Eyes

Dry eyes can be a problem any time the surface of the eye becomes inflamed and doesn't maintain adequate lubrication. This can happen as a result of many eye related conditions as well as systemic reasons. Jordan Sterrer, M.D. at Eyecare Medical Group provides patients with a through and systemic examination and consultation for dry eye problems and dry eye syndrome. When you see Dr. Sterrer for a dry eye examination and consultation he will evaluate your tear film quality, your tear film quantity, how well the tears are distributed over the surface of your eye as well as going through a careful eye and medical history to understand how your health or medications you take might be contributing to your dry eye symptoms.  Any one or more of these factors can cause a dry eye problem. By understanding the cause of your dry eye, Dr. Sterrer will be able to provide a treatment plan that can make you more comfortable. You may schedule a dry eye consultation with Dr. Sterrer by calling 207-773-4607, or toll free at 1-888-374-2020.
