Dry eye is a condition where the person does not have enough quality tears to lubricate and nourish the eye. Tears are necessary for nourishing and maintaining the health of the front surface of the eye and for providing clear vision. Symptoms of dry eyes include blurry vision, burning sensation, itchy eyes, aching sensations, heavy or fatigued eyes.
There are a number of options for the treatment of dry eyes such as the use of artificial tears. Before you instill anything into your eyes, schedule an appointment with your eye doctor and ask what is the best treatment plan for you.
