Dry Eye Syndrome
Dry eye syndrome is a multifactorial condition that refers to a breakdown in the quantity or quality of tears that moisten, cleanse, and protect the eyes. This is significant because, with each blink, tears protect the surface of the eye, washing away dust debris, and microorganisms. When this protective coating is not working correctly, the eyes may feel dry, gritty, sandy, sting, or burn. The eyes can also can be more sensitive to light or become red and irritated. In some cases, it can also cause vision to be blurry or distorted.
If you suspect that you have dry eye, please discuss your symptoms with your eye doctor. Proper care will not only increase your comfort, it will protect your eyes long term. Your eye care provider can perform a series of tests to determine if you have dry eyes.
