“My eyes get tired easily.” “My eyes feel uncomfortable.”
“My eyes are bleary.” “It’s difficult to see things.”
There has been a sharp increase in the number of people complaining about symptoms like these recently.
Symptoms once thought to be “eye fatigue” could actually be caused by dry eye.
Dry eye is not just a symptom in which the eye is simply dry. It is also having various symptoms caused by the mucosal abnormality on the surface of the eye and making it bumpy.
You need to understand dry eye properly and keep your eyes healthy.
