About dry eyes

Back to the top

Dry eye is a common condition that occurs when your eyes are not able to produce tears that adequately lubricate the eye. When you blink, tears lubricate the surface of your eyes, keeping them free of foreign materials. Not only can dry eyes be uncomfortable, but they may also lead to eye damage and infection. Common symptoms of dry eyes include: Eye redness Stinging, burning, or scratchy sensations in the eye Watery eyes Light sensitivity Blurry vision

Dry eyes are usually caused by inadequate tear production or poor quality tears:

- Inadequate tear production: When the glands in and around the eyelid are unable to produce enough tears to properly lubricate the surface of the eye, your eyes may feel dry and uncomfortable. Decreased tear production is commonly caused by age, certain medical conditions, certain medications (such as antihistamines), or environmental conditions (like dry, arid air).

- Poor tear quality: Tears are a mixture of water and oil, both of which help lubricate and protect the eye. Clogged pores in the eyelid can lead to an imbalance in the makeup of tears. This can cause tears to evaporate too quickly, or improperly spread over the surface of the cornea. Poor tear quality may be caused by medical conditions, age, eyelid infections (such as blepharitis), or environmental conditions.

Dry eyes can be uncomfortable and dangerous. Eyes that lack lubrication are at risk of inflammation, damage, and infections. Poorly lubricated eyes are common for adults over the age of 50. Women are at greater risk of dry eyes due to hormonal changes during pregnancy or menopause, as are people who frequently wear contact lenses. If you’ve been experiencing the symptoms of dry eyes for more than a few days, or if it is affecting your vision, talk to your doctor as soon as you can.
