Dry Eye Syndrome (keratoconjunctivitis sicca), often referred to simply as 'dry eyes' or 'dry eye', is a common eye condition. It occurs when the eyes do not produce enough tears, or when the tears evaporate too quickly. This leads to dryness, which causes soreness and inflammation.

Dry eye syndrome can be caused by ageing, blepharitis, Sjogren's syndrome, damage to the eye and medication such as antidepressants, antihistamines and the contraceptive pill.

Symptoms of dry eye syndrome include irritated eyes, a slight blurring of vision from time to time and a sensitivity to bright lights. Thankfully treatments such as artificial tears and eye ointments are good at relieving such symptoms.

Dry Eyes Information

What are the symptoms of dry eye syndrome?

Dry eye syndrome typically affects both eyes. Symptoms include dryness of the eyes accompanied by grittiness, soreness and redness. Eyelids can be stuck together upon waking and conditions can get worse as the day progresses.

If dry eye is left untreated it can lead to further complications such as conjunctivitis and scarring of the cornea. If you are experiencing severe symptoms you should contact your doctor immediately.

How common is dry eye syndrome?

Dry eyes is a common condition in people over 50 and is particularly common in those over 60 years of age. Cases of dry eyes are more frequent in women than men.

Is it a serious condition?

Although often painful and a nuisance, dry eye syndrome is not particularly serious condition. Products offering symptomatic relief are widely available and complications are a rarity.

What cause dry eye syndrome?

There are a number of different causes behind dry eye syndrome. These include:
  • illness
  • reaction to medication
  • ageing
  • hormonal changes
  • environmental factors.

How do I treat dry eye syndrome?

Like with many other eye conditions, there is no out and out cure for dry eye syndrome. There are however, a range of products available, such as artificial tears, ocular lubricants and eye ointments that provide symptomatic relief.
