Dry Eye Syndrome

Dry eyes are not only uncomfortable, they are also more prone to injury and infection. For incidental cases of dry eyes, over-the-counter eye lubricants are all that is needed. However, chronic, lasting or severe dry eyes can be a condition known as dry eye syndrome. Depending on the cause and extent of dry eye syndrome, it may or may not be able to be completely cured. Even when not cured, however, the symptoms can be managed.
