Dry Eyes

Dry eyes can be induced by the environment causing the tear film to dry out. This may be due to dry air from air-conditioning, heat or other environmental conditions. It is also caused by an imbalance in the composition of the tear film on the surface of the eye. Other causes of dry eye include: menopause, side effects of certain medications such as antihistamines, birth control pills, acne medications; diseases such as Sjogren's syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, collagen vascular diseases and structural problems with the eye lids.


Signs and symptoms:

  • Scratchy/gritty sensation
  • Irritation
  • Redness
  • Excessive tearing


  • Artificial tears in the form of a solution or gel
  • Punctal occlusion
