What Are The Symptoms Of Dry Eye?

The usual symptoms of Dry Eye include:

  • stinging or burning eyes
  • scratchiness
  • stringy mucus in or around the eyes
  • eye irritation from smoke or wind
  • excess tearing
  • difficulty wearing contact lenses

Excess tearing from dry eye sounds illogical, but if the tears responsible for maintenance lubrication do not keep the eye wet enough, the eye becomes irritated. When the eye is irritated, the Lacrimal gland produces a large volume of tears which overwhelms the tear drainage system. These excess tears then overflow from your eye.
