Dry eyes may produce irritated, scratchy or burning eyes. If left untreated dry eyes may even lead to the damage of the eye and impair vision.
A number of different factors may lead to chronic dry eyes. These factors include; gender (women are more likely to suffer from dry eyes), age, medication, environmental factors and various medical conditions. In some cases, even long term use of contact lenses or refractive eye surgeries may decrease tear production and result in dry eyes.
Treatments for dry eyes strive to return eyes to the normal amount of tears to minimize dryness and maintain eye health.
