What is Dry Eye Syndrome?
There are a number of symptoms associated with dry eye disease. The level of discomfort occurring as a result of the condition varies from person to person, and you might not have all of these signs, but the only way to find out for sure is to have a professional examination.
The majority of people who experience Dry Eye Syndrome often complain of blurry vision, redness, burning feeling and gritty eyes. If left untreated, it can cause impaired vision or eye scarring.
Here are some of the symptoms to look out for:
- A stinging, burning or scratchy sensation in your eyes
- Stringy mucus in or around your eyes
- Sensitivity to light
- Redness in and around the eyes
- A sensation of having something in your eyes
- Difficulty wearing contact lenses
- Difficulty with night time driving
- Small spots around the eye margins
- Chalazion are enlargements of an oil gland (similar to a pimple) deep in the eyelid caused by an obstruction of the gland’s opening
