Dry eye is a condition in which a person doesn’t have enough quality tears to lubricate and nourish the eye. Tears are necessary for maintaining the health of the front surface of the eye and for providing clear vision. Dry eye is a common and often chronic problem.

People with dry eyes may experience irritated, gritty, scratchy or burning eyes; a feeling of something in their eyes; excess watering; and blurred vision. Advanced dry eyes may damage the front surface of the eye and impair vision.

Eye allergies causing itchy, dry and/or red eyes is a common problem that many people can suffer from even if they don’t have systemic allergies. Since the eyes are wet and exposed, many allergens such as dust and pollen can stick to the surface of the eye and caused a localized response that responds well to various treatments.
