A Painful and Common Condition
One of the most common eye conditions treated by physicians, Dry Eye is an irritating and sometimes painful condition in which the eye fails to properly produce enough good quality tears. Your eyes may feel irritated—gritty, burning, stinging, or itchy. Other symptoms include eye fatigue, especially when reading or working on your computer as well as fluctuating vision. If left untreated, it can lead to ulcers, scars on the cornea, and even impairment of vision.
