Disorders of the dry eye
Occur with feelings of:
- foreign body
- increased watering
- redness of eye
- or other symptoms of discomfort of the eye
Disorders of dry eye can have different intensity, but they always occur in both eyes. They may be more pronounced in the morning or the evening.
Subjective disorders caused by dry eye can be extremely uncomfortable because they directly affect the quality of life.
With many patients, dry eye manifests itself with the feeling of general exhaustion, lower level of concentration, increased irritability and frequent headaches. The disorders are more pronounced in air-conditioned spaces, spaces with central heating, in strong wind or sunshine, and are increased during prolonged work at the computer or watching of TV. For women the disorders may be more intense during the pre-menstrual period.
If you have any of these disorders, please contact your ophthalmologist.
