Dry Eye Relief
What Is Dry Eye?
Dry eye occurs when your tear flow reduces or your tears evaporate too quickly, causing the sensitive front surface of the eye to dry out. The eyes then become uncomfortable, red and inflamed and in some cases very sore.
There are many different causes of dry eye which must be properly investigated if it is to be treated effectively.
The good news is that once it has been investigated most people find that dry eye is relatively easy to treat.
