What is Dry Eye?

Dry eye is a prevalent condition characterized by insufficient tear production or excessive tear evaporation. This can result in discomforting symptoms such as irritation, scratchiness, and blurred vision. Beyond mere dryness, it significantly influences ocular health. Analogous to wiper fluid for a windshield, tears serve to cleanse and lubricate the eyes. Without an ample supply, clarity and comfort may diminish, leaving vision blurry and uncomfortable.
