Dry Eye Symptoms

Dry eye is a condition that arises when the tear ducts do not produce enough natural tears. This can lead to uncomfortable feelings of scratching, dryness and possibly a burning sensation.
Dry eyes can often cause difficulty for people in rather dry environments or extensive use of electronic devices, like smartphones or computers.

There are many causes of dry eyes. From contact lens wear, the natural aging process, certain eye conditions and possible complications of a prior surgical procedure.
