Watery eyes could mean you're suffering from dry eye syndrome

Did you know that one in five people suffer from dry eye syndrome? This is mainly due to environmental factors such air conditioned rooms and the time we spend in front of computers, televisions and video games. However in some cases things such as reactions to medication and minor eye infections can also be causes.

Due to the number of people that suffer from dry eye syndrome it's important that you visit an optician annually. It has been proven that the earlier dry eye is diagnosed the simpler it is to treat. Left to develop, dry eye can become progressively worse and in some cases harder to treat.

Symptoms of dry eye syndrome include:

  • Soreness
  • Gritty sensation
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Itching
  • Watering
  • Redness
  • Blurred vision
