Dry eye

Dry eye is a common condition characterized by a lack of sufficient moisture and lubrication on the surface of the eye. It occurs when the tears produced by the tear glands are not of adequate quality or quantity. Factors like aging, hormonal changes, environmental conditions, certain medications, and underlying health conditions can contribute to dry eye.

Dryness, stinging, burning, redness, and blurred vision.

Treatment options may include the use of artificial tears, prescription eye drops, lifestyle modifications, such as avoiding dry environments and using humidifiers, and in some cases, blocking the tear drainage ducts to retain tears on the eye surface.
