Dry Eye Syndrome (Chronic Dry Eye Disease)
Tears provide lubrication, reduce the risk of eye infection, washes away any foreign matter in the eye and keep the surface of the eye smooth and clear. Tears are necessary for maintaining the eye health of the eye and for providing clear vision.
Dry eye is a common and often chronic problem that can cause serious damage if not treated.
Causes of dry eyes:
»  Most people over the age of 40 experience dry eye symptoms
» Hormonal changes in women brought on by pregnancy, menopause or the use of the use of oral contraceptives.
» Medications such as antihistamines, decongestants, blood pressure-related meds and anti-depressants can also reduce the amount of tears produced in the eyes.
» People with rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, blepharitis, inward or
outward turning of eyelids, and thyroid problems are more likely to have symptoms of dry eyes.
» Exposure to smoke, wind, and dry climates.
» Staring at a computer screen for long periods of time.
» Refractive eye surgeries, such as LASIK, can cause decreased tear production and dry eyes.
Symptoms of dry eyes:
» Blurred vision.
» Burning, itching, or redness in the eye.
» Gritty or scratchy feeling in the eye.
» Sensitivity to light.
How are dry eyes treated?
