Dry Eye Syndrome

If you have itchy or sensitive eyes, you may have Dry Eye Syndrome, a chronic problem in which the outer layer of your eyes does not get proper lubrication because of insufficient or poor-quality tear production.

Dry Eye Syndrome is one of the most common eye-related complaints in the U.S., affecting nearly 21 million people. It can affect men and women at any age, and is common over the age of 40. Postmenopausal women are frequently susceptible, possibly due in part to hormonal changes.

The symptoms of Dry Eye Syndrome may include:

  • Stinging, burning or scratchy sensations in both eyes
  • Stringy mucus in or around eyes
  • Eye fatigue after short periods of reading
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Difficulty wearing contact lenses
  • Tearing
  • Blurred vision, often worsening late in the day

Causes of Dry Eyes

The cause of dry eyes varies. For some people, the cause is an imbalance in the composition of their tears. With others, not enough tears are produced to keep their eyes comfortably lubricated. Eyelid problems, medications and environmental factors—heat, dryness, wind, high altitudes, and smoke—can also lead to dry eyes.
