Dry eye syndrome is a very common condition that is characterized by a disturbance of the tear film and caused by a lack of adequate tears. Tears are a complex mixture of water, fatty oils, and mucus. This mixture helps make the surface of the eyes smooth and clear, and it helps protect the eyes from infection. Dry eyes may lead to eye inflammation, scarring on the surface of the corneas and vision problems. Usually both eyes are affected. Dry eye syndrome is more common in women than in men.
Symptoms may include a stinging, itching, burning, tearing or scratchy sensation in the eyes, stringy mucus in or around the eyes, eye fatigue, a sensation of having something in the eyes, difficulty wearing contact lenses, blurred vision, worsening after focusing for a prolonged period, sensitivity to light and irritated, tired, inflammed and red eyes.
