Dry eyes

 

Dry eye syndrome is a common problem affecting nearly 20% of the population.

It may include some of the following symptoms (which can increase with age):

  • Red eye(s) at the end of the day
  • Tired eyes after watching TV or computer screen
  • Dry eyes because of contact lenses or air conditioning

Working on computer screens, driving cars, artificial lights, air pollution, wearing contact lenses and air conditioning, make dry eye syndrome a common nuisance.
