A common condition harassing part of the population is dry eye. It occurs when there is insufficient lubrication and moisture of the eye, caused by decreased production of tears or because the tears are not of the correct consistency and evaporate too quickly. Dry eye is usually accompanied with burning, itching, blurred vision that improves on blinking, irritation without obvious cause. A sandy or gritty feeling as if something is in the eye is very typical. Dry eye appears as a resultant of many factors: allergies, insufficient blinking, prolonged use of contact lenses, environment, use of medicinal products, ophthalmological surgery etc.

In order to treat the dry eye syndrome, the eye-specialist may recommend the use of “artificial” tears which offer significant relief to the patient.

Glaucoma is a group of diseases that can damage the eye’s optic nerve and result in vision loss and blindness. Glaucoma occurs when the normal fluid pressure inside the eyes slowly rises.
