Dry eye is a common condition that occurs because your eyes may not be able to produce enough tears and/or lubrication.
Dry eyes can cause discomfort, inflammation, and even lead to damage to the eye’s surface. When you blink, a film of tears spreads over your eye, keeping it smooth and clear. Even when we’re not crying, our eyes are constantly creating tears to keep our eyes lubricated and clear. Dry eye occurs because our eyes cannot produce enough tears, leading to eye irritation.
