Known by many different names, Dry Eye Syndrome is a relatively common condition affecting people of all ages and genders, although it tends to be more common with age and has a higher prevalence among women.
As the name suggests there is an insufficient supply of natural tears to keep the surface of the eye moist and healthy. Symptoms such as itchiness, dryness, and irritation, foreign body sensation or even difficulty wearing contact lenses are all commonly reported.
Dry Eye Syndrome can be caused by many factors including medication, smoking, menopause, diet, and environmental conditions such as air-conditioning. Whatever the cause, your eye specialist or Doctor can properly diagnose Dry Eye Syndrome and, if so, recommend or prescribe the appropriate product or products for you.
