Eyes require a significant amount of natural tears to provide the moisture and lubrication necessary to provide clear vision. Tears are created naturally by glands located around the eye. When the eyes are not receiving enough moisture from your tears, a patient may suffer from dry eyes.
What Are Symptoms Of Dry Eyes?
Although symptoms vary from person to person, a patient with dry eyes may experience:
- A Gritty Feeling (Like Something Is In Your Eye)
- Blurry Vision
- Burning Eyes
- Excessive Tearing
- Feeling that something is in your eye
- Light Sensitivity
- Stinging Eyes
What Causes Dry Eyes?
Dry Eye Syndrome is a lack of lubrication and moisture in the eye. This could be caused by decreased tear production or increased evaporation. Common symptoms include burning, itching, stinging or tired eyes, blurred vision, sensitivity to light, redness of the eyes, and even tearing watery eyes. Symptoms may worsen in warmer weather, exposure to indoor heat, windy conditions, after or during travel by car or plane, in low or dry humidity, while watching a movie or TV generally, after a long day or after extended periods on the computer.
Although Dry Eye Syndrome is a common ailment, it is very important to have your eyes examined as soon as you start experiencing dry eye symptoms to have your eyes examined and diagnosed.
