Dry eye is a common condition that affects millions of people around the world. It occurs when your eyes are unable to produce enough tears or when the quality of the tears is poor. Tears are important for maintaining the health of your eyes by providing lubrication, nourishment, and protection against infections and irritants. When you have dry eye, you may experience symptoms such as redness, itchiness, burning or stinging sensation, a feeling of grittiness or sand in the eyes, and blurred vision. Dry eye can be caused by a variety of factors, including age, certain medical conditions, medications, environmental factors, and lifestyle habits.
