Dry Eye Syndrome

Dry eye syndrome is a common condition that affects the eyes and can lead to discomfort and visual disturbances, where there is a lack of sufficient tears or poor quality of tears leading to dry, itchy, and burning eyes.

  • Dryness and grittiness in the eyes
  • Redness and irritation of the eyes
  • Blurred vision or difficulty in focusing
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Excessive tearing
  • Feeling like there is a foreign object in the eye

Epiphora

Epiphora, also known as watery eyes, is a condition that causes excessive tearing or watering of the eyes, often due to an obstruction in the drainage system of the tears.

Symptoms:

  • Blurred vision or difficulty in focusing
  • Redness or irritation around the eyes
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Mucus or discharge from the eyes

Dacryocystitis
