What is Dry Eye and What are the Symptoms?

Dry eye is a common condition that affects the ocular surface, leading to irritation and damage. The condition arises due to inadequate tear production or poor tear quality. Symptoms may include:

  • Stinging or burning sensation in the eyes
  • Redness and irritation
  • Excessive tearing or watery eyes
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Blurred vision
  • Feeling of something in the eye

Understanding the symptoms and their impact is crucial to finding the right treatment for your specific type of dry eye.
