Dry Eye Symptoms

Dry eyes can cause a range of symptoms that might bother you. Here's what to look out for:

  • Burning Sensation: You might experience a burning or stinging feeling.

  • Redness: Dry eyes can make the whites of your eyes look red or bloodshot.

  • Blurry Vision: Your vision can get blurry, especially when you read, use the computer, or watch TV.

  • Gritty Feeling: It may feel like there's sand or grit in your eyes.

  • Excessive Tearing: Ironically, dry eyes can lead to watery eyes as your eyes try to compensate.

What causes dry eyes?

  • Aging: As we age, our tear production naturally decreases, making us more susceptible to dry eyes.

  • Environmental Factors: Dry and windy climates, as well as exposure to smoke and air conditioning, can lead to increased evaporation of tears.

  • Medical Conditions: Conditions such as diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, and thyroid disorders can contribute to dry eyes.

  • Medications: Some medications, including antihistamines, decongestants, and antidepressants, can reduce tear production.

  • Digital Screen Usage: Extended use of computers and digital devices can reduce the frequency of blinking, which is necessary for spreading tears across the eye's surface.
