What are Dry Eye Symptoms?
A feeling of dryness is the most common symptom of dry eye, but some of the symptoms of dry eye are not as straightforward. For example, watery eyes (excessive tearing) is a sign that your eyes aren’t producing enough tears and they are over compensating to catch up, therefore making them water.
Have you noticed any of the following dry eye symptoms?
- Eye dryness
- Eye irritation
- Burning or stinging eyes
- Scratchy eyes
- Gritty eyes
- Tired eyes
- Fluctuating or blurry vision
- Excessive tearing
If you experience one or more of the symptoms above, you may have dry eye. Without treatment, chronic dry eye can lead to eye infection, scarring, or possibly impaired vision. To find out more, see your eye care professional.1,2
