Are your eyes often irritated—as if dust or sand were in them? Do your eyes sting or burn? Are they sensitive to light? Has driving at night or wearing contact lenses become more difficult? If so, you may have dry eye disease.
July is National Dry Eye Awareness Month, and during the month, we recognize eye health’s essential role in overall health. According to the National Eye Institute, dry eye is more common in people 50 and older. Nearly 5 million Americans who are 50 or older experience severe symptoms of dry eye, and about 20 million have less severe symptoms. The condition is twice as prevalent among women as it is among men.
