Dry Eyes


Dry eyes is a common condition where your tears arent’t able to keep your eyes lubricated. It frequently happens with aging, localized inflammation of the eyelids, and can be a side effect of some medications.

Dry eyes can feel extremely uncomfortable. You may feel your eyes burning, stinging, and intermittent blurry vision. Ironically, having increased tearing can be sign of dry eyes as your body is trying to compensate for the dryness by increasing tear production.
