Dry Eye is a condition that can lead to a decrease in tear production or excessive tear evaporation. This disorder affects most people at some stage of their life, especially the elderly.
Our lifestyle and environment in which we live can contribute to dry eye. Using a computer screen reduces our blinking and contributes to dry eyes. Also, heating and cooling will increase the symptoms which include grittiness, burning and watering eyes.
Some medications may cause a decrease in tear production. At Young Eyes Optometrists, we will be able to help with strategies to manage this condition.Learn More Here
