Dry Eye Syndrome is a lack of lubrication and moisture in the eye, caused by either decreased tear production or increased evaporation. Although symptoms vary person to person, the most 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 windy conditions, warmer weather, airplane travel, dry or low humidity, while watching TV or after a long day’s work. Although a common occurrence, it is important to treat Dry Eye Syndrome as soon as possible and with regular doctor visits to ensure complications or damage to the eye or vision does not occur.
