Sore, Itchy, Burning Eyes?

It could be “Dry Eye”. This is a medical condition that occurs when the eye does not produce the correct volume of tears, when tear chemistry changes, or when tears disappear too quickly. Dry eye can be a temporary or chronic condition caused by risk factors such as hormonal changes, certain medications, diseases, ageing, and laser eye surgery. Dry eyes are not vision threatening but can affect everyday life in doing things comfortably like computer use and reading. It should be managed to avoid future potential problems such as corneal scars. See your Optometrist, as they will assist in prescribing proper relief of symptoms.
