Dry Eye Syndrome

Dry eye syndrome can occur when your eyes stop making tears as they usually would. Tears are an important part of your eye health. They help to keep your eyes lubricated, protect against infections, and clear away debris from the surface of your eyes.

Dry eye syndrome develops when there is a disruption in the production of tears – either that they evaporate too quickly, an issue with drainage, or that not enough tears are produced. This can happen for many reasons, either one or a combination of:

  • Being in a hot or windy environment
  • Wearing contact lenses
  • Certain underlying medical conditions
  • Side effects of certain medications

Hormonal changes, such as during the menopause
