Eyes Up

Not A Dry Eye In the House

The cold wind outdoors and the low humidity indoors, can dry out and irritate your eyes leaving them itchy and scratchy. Here are two ways to protect your peepers:

  1. Use artificial tears several times a day.
  2. Install humidifiers indoors to increase the humidity levels.

See your doctor if you have any questions or if irritation persists.
