What is dry eye?
Dry eye is a common condition in which there are insufficient tears to lubricate and nourish the eye. Tears are necessary for maintaining the health of the front surface of the eye and for providing clear vision.
Will I get dry eyes as I get older?
People with dry eyes either do not produce enough tears or have a poor quality of tears. Tear production tends to diminish with age, which is why dry eye symptoms can be more prevalent in older adults.
