Disease/Condition Glossary

Dry eye: Dry eye is a common condition that occurs when your tears cannot provide adequate lubrication for your eyes. The tearing instability leads to inflammation and damage to the eye's surface. Symptoms include burning sensation, sensitivity to light, eye redness, a sensation of having something in your eyes, watery eyes, and blurred vision. It is caused by the disruption of the healthy tear film due to hormonal changes, autoimmune disease, inflamed eyelid glands, ageing, using contact lenses, and using medications like antihistamines (fexofenadine).
