At Aucello EyeCare Center, we know life with dry eyes is often uncomfortable and inconvenient. If you suffer from dry eye syndrome, you need an optometrist in South Windsor or Newington who will get to the bottom of your symptoms and help reduce or eliminate your discomfort. Our optometrists offer customized, innovative dry eye treatments that could help restore your eye health and vision.

You may just need a new type of contact lens, for example, or more protective eyewear in cold and windy conditions. If your eyes regularly fail to produce the proper amount of lubrication, and your eyes get dry and itchy as a result, you could have dry eye disease.
