Millions of Americans suffer from dry eyes. The prolonged use of computers, tablets, and smartphones can make dry eye conditions worse. Dry eyes can cause contact lenses to feel uncomfortable and even cause vision fluctuations. Dry eye syndrome, also known as ocular surface disease may be caused by lack of tear production, tear quality, infection or inflammation. If lubricating drops are insufficient, a customized treatment may be effective. Symptoms of dry eye syndrome include redness, itching, burning, grittiness, discharge, light sensitivity, fluctuating vision, halos, excessive tearing up, or tired eyes at the end of the day.
