Dry eyes, while seemingly simple, are a complex condition affecting millions worldwide. It’s more than just a scratchy feeling – it can significantly impact your comfort, vision, and daily life.

While the gritty, burning sensation is a telltale sign, other common symptoms include stinging or itching eyes, redness, irritation, blurred vision, feeling like something is stuck in your eye, sensitivity to light, excessive watering (ironically), and difficulty wearing contact lenses.

Frequently Asked Questions

Several factors can contribute, including:
  • Digital devices: The demand on our fast-paced lives and digital devices makes it an issue for even young people. When we’re staring at screens, we’re not blinking as often as we should This constant lack of blinking becomes habitual, and actually re-wires our brains to blink less.
  • Decreased tear production: Age, hormonal changes, medications, and vitamin deficiencies can contribute.
  • Increased tear evaporation: Wind, dry air, and screen time can cause faster tear evaporation.
  • Tear quality problems: Sometimes, the tears are not of the right consistency or composition.

Symptoms may include:

  • Scratchy, burning sensation
  • Stinging or itching eyes
  • Redness and irritation
  • Blurred vision, especially after focusing for long periods
  • Feeling like something is stuck in your eye

  • Excessive watering (ironically)
