Dry Eye

Dry eye syndrome is a chronic lack of sufficient lubrication and moisture in the eye. Consequences extend from subtle but constant irritation to ocular inflammation of the front of the eye. Dry eye will often result in stinging, burning, scratchy sensation, sensitivity to light, tearing, tired eyes, and difficulty wearing contact lenses, as well as blurred or fluctuating vision, often worsening at the end of the day or after visually focusing for a prolonged period on a nearby task. It is particularly bothersome for wearers of contact lenses, the elderly, certain lifestyles, medications, and visual demands.
