Dry eye syndrome

- Thursday, October 27, 2016

The symptoms of dry eye syndrome tend to be mild for most people, however more severe cases can be painful and lead to many complications. These symptoms usually affect both of the eyes and can include:
Burning and/or red eyes
Eyelids that are stuck together upon waking up
Temporarily blurred vision which can be improved by blinking
Feelings of dryness, soreness or grittiness which can worsen throughout the day
Watering eyes – which occurs if the eye tries to relieve the irritation by producing more tears

Tears are produced in our lacrimal glands, which then flow into the space between our eyeball and our eyelid. Waste fluid is eventually disposed of through the nasal cavity; hence why our nose tends to run when we cry.
