Chronic Dry Eye

Chronic dry eye is a common eye problem.

Chronic Dry Eye/Tear Film insufficiency affects a large number of people and is commonly mistaken for allergies or strain from part of a daily routine such as looking at a computer monitor. These can be irritants but are not the source of the problem.

The surface of your eyes require a constant layer of tears for protection and nourishment. Chronic Dry Eye results from changes in the health of the tear-producing glands, resulting in a change in the quantity and quality of the tears made. Without treatment, this results in damage to your eyes surface, which causes the symptoms of Chronic Dry Eye. The symptoms include itching, irritation, light sensitivity, blurred vision, too much tear production, and eventually more serious vision problems.
