Dry Eye Syndrome
Dry eye syndrome is one of the most common eye conditions in the United States, affecting women two to three times more often than men. Symptoms include dryness, stickiness, and stinging or burning of their eyes; eyes often may be red and irritated. This disease becomes more common as we age. Dry eye syndrome may sound like more of a nuisance than a serious problem, but left untreated, severe cases can result in permanent sight loss. There are numerous treatments available, ranging from small changes in daily habits for mild cases to medical options for more severe sufferers.
