Dry eyes are a common condition that affects the surface of the eye. Dry eyes can make the eyes feel uncomfortable, can cause a sandy or gritty sensation in the eyes, can cause the eyes to water excessively, and can cause blurry vision.
There are many causes of dry eyes. Dry eyes can be caused by the aging process, contact lens wear, certain medications, medical conditions, or environmental factors. Dry eyes can also be caused by reduced tear production due to inflammation. While there is no cure for dry eye disease, there are numerous options for reducing or even eliminating symptoms.
