Dry Eyes

What are the symptoms of a dry eye?
Symptoms can include a sandy, gritty feeling, something in the eye, a scratchy or itchy eye.
The severity can be mild to severe.

Why do we experience dry eye symptoms?
The eye produces a tear film on each blink which contains many components that keeps the front of the eye clean and healthy. However, when this tear quality deteriorates the sensory nerves on our eyes triggers a warning signal that indicates something is not right, hence the symptoms.
