Chronic dry eyes affect nearly 40 million people in the United States alone. Individuals may suffer from chronic dry eyes if they have dry, itchy or burning eyes. Symptoms may also include watery, gritty or blurry eyes, in addition to light sensitivity causing squinting or blinking. There are a number of factors that can contribute to these dry eye symptoms such as age, eye surgery, computer use, contact lens wear, medications, allergies, eye disorders, diseases, hormonal imbalance, and environmental triggers.
