What is Dry Eye Syndrome?
Dry Eye Syndrome is when your eyes do not produce enough tears, or the tears are of a poor quality, to lubricate them. Tears are essential in maintaining the surface of your eye and providing clear vision. Symptoms include itchiness, blurry vision or a feeling of grittiness in your eyes.
Age, gender, medication, certain medical conditions and environmental factors have been linked to Dry Eye Syndrome.
