Dry Eye

Dry Eye

For many it is a simple discomfort, itching or irritation that manifests when the lacrimal glands do not work properly. For others, it is an unbearable and chronic pain.

Causes of Dry Eye

Hormonal changes are the main cause of dry eye syndrome, causing changes in the production of tears.


Occasionally, tests to measure the production of tears are necessary. Another way in which your ophthalmologist can diagnose dry eye is by putting special drops of dye in the eye and studying how long it takes for the dry areas to develop in the cornea.
