Dry Eyes Syndrome

Dry eyes syndrome has many causes and often includes dryness, scratchiness, itching, tearing, eye strains, and eye pain. The eyes produce tears which contains three components working in conjunction with one another to help lubricate the eyes and provide a smooth, moist surface for light to enter the eye giving clear vision. When the eyes dry, one or all three components are lacking. Dryness can result from exterior factors such as wind, sun, and other environmental factors as well. Only through proper determination of the causes could there be proper treatment options.
