WHEN TEARS FAIL TO COMFORT
Dry eyes occur when the eyes don't produce enough tears or when the tears evaporate too quickly. This can lead to discomfort, blurred vision, and even eye damage. Factors like age, environmental conditions, certain medications, and underlying health conditions can contribute to dry eyes, making it a common yet often overlooked concern.
