Dry Eye Center

Dry eye syndrome is a common eye condition that occurs when a patient cannot produce enough tears or their tears are not able to provide adequate moisture to the eye. Tears are important for providing lubrication, clearing away foreign material in the eye, reducing the risk of eye infection, and keeping the surface of the eye smooth. With a lack of tears or high-quality tears, people may experience a range of symptoms that impair vision and hinder quality of life. Anyone can get dry eye, but it’s more likely if you are over the age of 50, are female, wear contact lenses, have a vitamin A deficiency, or have a certain autoimmune condition like Lupus or Sjogren’s Syndrome.
