Dry eye syndrome is a condition in which the tear film of the eye is diminished thus causing the cornea to be exposed to the environment due to the lack of lubrication and protection. The implications of this have a wide range from patients being completely asymptomatic to a severe inflammation of the eye.Often time’s patients are completely asymptomatic and have no idea that dryness is an issue until the optometrist brings it to their attention. Once treatment is initiated, patients start to realize the difference in their eyes and notice that what they thought was normal actually wasn’t so.

 
Some symptoms of Dry Eye Syndrome include:

• Itching
• Burning
• Tearing
• Redness
• Irritation

When it comes to treating dry eyes, each individual’s needs are unique. Treatment is initiated with the least invasive yet effective method.
