Dry Eye Causes and Symptoms
Dry Eye (or Ocular Surface Disease) is one of the most common diseases of the eye. Dry Eye is caused by an insufficient amount of tears on the eye, or a poor quality of tears, which leaves the eye without the lubrication and nourishment it needs. It is closely related to several eye conditions such as blepharitis or meibomian gland dysfunction, making the diagnosis and treatments more complicated.
• Burning, stinging sensation.
• Fluctuations in vision with blinks.
• Tired, fatigued eyes.
• Red, irritated-looking eyes.
• Stringy mucous in or around eyes.
• Excess tearing.
• Inability to wear contact lenses
