What is Dry Eye?

If you have dry eye, you are likely to experience these symptoms more often when looking at light. Dry eyes are associated with aging, diabetes and several other medical conditions.  Additionally, patients with prolonged computer or other digital device use are predisposed to developing dry eyes.

How is Dry Eye Condition Treated?

In order to treat a dry eye condition, you will need to see an eye care professional. Your eye doctor will be able to diagnose you properly with having this condition.
