Dry eye occurs when the eye doesn’t produce enough tears, or the tears evaporate too quickly. Your eyes may feel irritated, dry, sore and tired. You may feel as if there is a ‘speck’ in your eye. Your eye may actually water more, which seems strange to many, but this is because the eye is irritated. You may notice the problem more in winter with heating, or in dusty or smoky environments. The problem is now all too common due to the fact many of us spend more time looking into screens. As a result we blink less, and this exacerbates the problem.
