Dry Eye Syndrome By William Goldstein on May 26, 2011

Dry Eye Syndrome is one of the most common problems in eye care today, and it seems to be increasing in frequency. It is also now recognized as a bigger issue in terms of good vision.
Most patients with dry eyes complain of dryness and grittiness. It may surprise some people to know that tearing is also a symptom of dry eyes. Patients with dryness will experience excessive tearing as their eyes try to compensate for the irritation that comes with dry eye. Blurred vision may also occur, either because of the tearing, or because good vision relies on a smooth tear film on the front of the eye.
Treatment usually starts with over-the-counter tear products, used up to 6 times daily. Other options include the use of Restasis prescription drops and the use of plugs in the tear outflow system. These treatments may be used in combination.
Most patients with dry eyes can have relief, but many require constant care, and are frustrated by constant dryness and burning.
