Ask Our Doctor A Question...
Q: Why does allergy season affect my eyes?
A: It’s that time of the year for allergies, and for those who suffer, it’s more than just sneezing. It can mean months of itchy, watery, and puffy eyes. Because many of the allergens are in the air, they easily get into the eyes and cause problems. For some people, a sudden case of red and watery eyes can feel like an infection when really, it’s just allergies. Eye allergies, known as “allergic conjunctivitis”, can often be treated with over the counter medication, but for some, it is not enough. Let us help you manage your allergies this season.
Q: Is Dry Eye more severe in the winter than in the warmer spring and summer months?
A: It's unclear. Dry Eye Syndrome (DES) is a chronic multi-factorial disease process in which signs and symptoms don't always correlate with one another. Some patient may be more sensitive in certain seasons than others, depending on the humidity level, wind factor, working environment, and other variables. Screening for this common and chronic condition is crucial to maintaining a healthy and stable tear film, no matter the season, and should not be based on symptoms alone.
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.

Myopia or nearsightedness is most commonly corrected with prescription glasses or contact lenses. As children grow, their prescription often gets stronger, what we call “progressive myopia”. Our eye doctors can help.
Eye floaters are usually normal. But what causes them and when do they indicate a serious eye problem that needs emergency eye care?
Dr. Coyle is the best optometrist I have ever encountered. He takes his time with you and carefully explains everything. It's almost as if you are treated like family. His technical assessments are sharp as a hawk and the staff is professional and very accommodating.
I recently had an eye issue. Dr. Coyle's staff worked me into the schedule the same day that I called their office. Dr. Coyle gave me a diagnosis, eye drops with detailed instructions and even provided me with sample contacts to hold me over until my annual visit. Both Dr. Coyle and his staff are extremely professional and helpful.
Dr. Coyle has been a staple in our family for the past year or so. Friday night, he met us at the office at 530 on his way out to dinner for an emergency visit. That is an unmatched service. He is so friendly and so is the office staff. Really a top-notch operation and we could not recommend them more!!
