Dry eye syndrome is an extremely common condition that causes dry, itchy, red and gritty feeling eyes and blurred vision. Dry eye syndrome can occur due to computer and mobile device use, hormonal change, age, allergies, environment, meibomian gland dysfunction and rosacea. Many treatments are available for this condition, although some people may experience chronic dry eye symptoms. Lubricating eye drops will offer temporary relief but dry eye syndrome progressively worsens with age and eye usage. A detailed evaluation is required for all the different tear glands and allergies to diagnose and treat dry eye syndrome accurately.
