Dry eye is a condition when the tears are not able to provide enough lubrication to the eyes. It can occur if either the tears production is less or the quality of the tears produced is poor. The tears are composed of water, oil, and mucus, and a problem with any one of this may result in dry eyes. The eyes of people with this condition burn, sting, and itch. The other symptoms are sensitivity to light, redness of the eye, difficulty driving, watery eyes, blurred vision, tired eyes, and stringy mucus around the eyes. The common reasons for reduced production of tears are aging, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, Sjogren’s syndrome, thyroid disorder, medications (antihistamines, antidepressants), after laser eye surgery, and damaged tear gland. It makes the eye susceptible to infections, eye inflammations, corneal surface abrasion, corneal ulcer, and vision problem.
