WHY ARE MY EYES DRY?

There are several causes of dry eye and different treatments required, depending on the cause. Sometimes the cause is an illness; dry eyes can be linked with consitions like arthritis or Sjogren's Sundrome, and artificial tears and/or lubricants are useful. Other times blinking can be deficient and blinking exercises are helpful. Certain eye conditions, such as blepheritis or meibomian gland dysfunction may also lead to dry eyes, and lid hygiene or hot massage of the lids is needed.
