Dry Eyes

Dry eye is a common condition that can affect millions of people to varying degrees, but the exact symptoms can involve more than just a general dryness. The lack of moisture can also lead to stinging, burning, and scratchy sensations, heightened sensitivity to light, and several other forms of chronic discomfort. Fortunately, dry eyes are often a temporary condition, and in many cases, it can be alleviated with the right attention and care from your optometrist. If you don’t yet have dry eyes, then you can improve your chances of avoiding it by taking a few appropriate precautions.
