Why Are My Eyes Dry?

Dry eyes are a painful and uncomfortable condition that affects millions of people every year. It is essential to understand the different causes of dry eye to get relief from this condition. Our team at The Advanced Eyelid Surgery Center has put together a list of the top 3 causes of dry eyes so that individuals can recognize what might be causing their symptoms, therefore leading to potential relief.

Lack of Sufficient Tears

The first cause of dry eyes is a lack of sufficient tears. Tears are important for keeping the surface of our eyes moist and healthy. If an individual does not have enough tears, it can lead to discomfort in their vision, burning, or itching sensations. These symptoms can come at the worst times, including while trying to sleep or during the workday.

Tears not produced in the proper quantity or quality can lead to blurry vision, burning or itching sensations while sleeping, and even redness of the eyes. Individuals should recognize these symptoms as signs of a potential problem. If you have experienced any discomfort in your vision due to a lack of tears, you must seek medical attention. This discomfort could be a sign of an issue, and if left untreated, can lead to more serious conditions such as corneal ulcers or scarring from the eyelids rubbing on your eyes.

Contact Lenses

Individuals that wear contact lenses often suffer more from dry eyes. Individuals who wear contact lenses are more prone to dry eye conditions because the lens sits directly on top of their eyes. Unfortunately, this causes decreased tear production, irritation, or even an obstruction in tears draining out of your eyelids. Dry eyes can be uncomfortable, but it doesn't mean that you cannot wear contacts. However, you need to make sure that you discuss it with your eye care professional if you have dry eyes. They will be able to help you find the right lenses and contact solution that works for both of you!

Sjögren's Syndrome

Sjögren's Syndrome is an autoimmune disorder where part of your immune system starts attacking glands and cells in the body. This disorder can affect many different body parts, but the eyes are one of the most common sites. Those with Sjögren's Syndrome need to be extra careful about wearing contacts for too long as this can lead to complications like corneal scratches.
