What is Dry Eye Disease?

Dry eye disease is a common condition that happens when your tears don’t adequately lubricate your eyes.

Common causes of dry eye disease include:

  • Certain medications

  • Some diseases, including Sjogren’s Syndrome and rheumatoid arthritis

  • Contact lenses

  • Dry air

  • Excessive screen time


If not treated, dry eye disease can lead to infection and poor vision. For moderate cases, moisturising eye drops called artificial tears can provide temporary relief. However, other treatments are also available.


Common symptoms

Gritty feeling on the eye

Excessive tear production

Stinging/burning sensation

Blurred vision/light sensitive

Itchy eyes

Tired eyes

Red eyes/eyelids

Sore and swollen eyelids
