How Does Dry Eye Syndrome Happen?

Dry eye is a common condition that occurs when the eye doesn't make enough tears or makes poor-quality tears.

How Does Dry Eye Syndrome Happen?

Tears can be inadequate and unstable for many reasons:

  • Normal aging or after menopause
  • Certain health conditions can affect your ability to make tears like Sjogren’s syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, and collagen vascular diseases
  • Environmental causes such as pollution or the weather
  • Some chronic medications can cause dry eye
  • Computer use
  • Contact lens wear

Dry eyes often cause chronic irritation, burning, watering, redness, blurry vision, pain, and can lead to damage of the eye's surface, infections and bleeding.
See our Ophthalmologists if you have these symptoms of dry eyes for appropriate treatment.
