Winter Eyes: Dry or Wet, Which Are You? Beverly Hills, CA
Procedures for Eye Beverly Hills CA

When it’s cold outside it’s easy for us to remember our heavy coats, boots, as well as a hat and scarf.  But what about our eyes?  They suffer during winter too and should be protected.

Everyone’s eye sensitivity is genetically different.  Some suffer from dry eyes in the winter, while others suffer from excessive tearing.  Which one are you?

Excessively Dry Eyes

In low temperatures and harsh winds, it’s hard for your eyes to keep up with the amount of tear production to keep them comfortable, leading to dry eyes. The same occurs indoors when there is artificial heat being used.

Invest in some cool glasses or goggles to protect your eyes.  This is especially important if there is a lot of wind, or when participating in winter sports like skiing. When you’re inside using the furnace to stay warm, a humidifier can not only help your eyes stay moisturized but your sinus cavities too. Staying hydrated will help keep in moisture.  Water is the best drink to consume.  If you don’t want to drink ice water in the winter, try it at room temperature.

Excessive Tearing

Some people experience the opposite of dryness and have excessive tearing of the eyes. It’s your eyes’ response to dry winter air. This condition will also benefit from glasses or goggles for protection. Keep a clean cloth around to wipe away excess tears from your face.  Don’t cross-contaminate by using the same tissue you just wiped your nose with!

If you suffer from chronic eye dryness or excessive tearing Dr. Kami Parsa in Beverly Hills can help you find a solution.  Don’t suffer any longer, give us a call today.

Words cannot express how thankful and appreciative I am to have found you. I am deeply grateful for you, for your generosity and caring nature as pertaining to my medical condition. As you know, I was apprehensive about having further surgery, but you are and have been reassuring and confident in the type of procedure you would perform in order to fix my eyelid from the beginning. The fact that you are not pushy and gave me the time and space to make the decision on my own allowed me to prepare myself mentally and emotionally, that really made a difference. Besides from that, your continuous generosity made me confident that you were the right doctor for the task at hand. You will never know how appreciative I am of that. I would also like to let you know how pleased I am with the results of the surgery. I have not felt this comfortable in years. My parents are also very grateful since this was my 14th surgery. You have a true gift. Thank you again for your patience, time, concern, and overall care. I pray that God continues to give you strength to help people who truly need life-changing medical procedures.

Dr. Parsa is an amazing doctor. Warm and very caring. I had my eyes done a couple years ago and I couldn't be happier. Dr. Parsa likes to take the conservative approach which I greatly appreciate in a doctor when it comes to cosmetic surgery. I also go to Dr. Parsa for Botox and he always knows just the right amount. The staff in Dr. Parsa's office are all terrific!
