Dry Eye Symptoms

How to Identify Them

Do you ask yourself almost daily, “Why are my eyes so dry?” Not getting any relief from the standard eye drops? You might have what is called “evaporative dry eye”.

This dry eye syndrome can upset your lifestyle making it a challenge to get through your daily routine. Moreover, this condition often worsens with time and may lead to chronic dry eyes and more discomfort.

What is evaporative dry eye?

It is an eye disease that occurs when the water in your tears evaporates faster than normal, due to an insufficient lipid (oil) layer on the tear film of your eye. The lack of a constant lipid layer is what causes your discomfort. This is often a result of blockage in the oil-producing glands in the eyelids, known as Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD).

Treatment for dry eyes depends on the cause and severity of your symptoms and therefore, varies from person to person.

What are dry eyes symptoms typically associated with this condition?

  • Blurred or double vision that might worsen as the day progresses
  • Sensitivity to sunlight
  • Dry itchy eyes or dry eyelids
  • Gritty or sore feeling in your eyes
  • Stinging or burning sensation in your eyes
  • Eyes become painful
  • Eye fatigue after reading or using the computer even for a short while
