Dry Eye

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 quality tears. Your eyes may feel irritated—gritty, burning, stinging, or itchy. If left untreated, it can lead to ulcers, scars on the cornea, even impairment of vision.
