Dry eye is a common condition that affects millions of Americans. Symptoms of dry eye range from a mild “gritty” or “sandy” sensation to severe burning or even pain. Patients often experience fluctuations in vision that can compromise their ability to perform daily visual tasks such as reading and driving. Dry eye has also been shown to affect the quality of visual outcomes in cornea, cataract, and refractive surgical procedures and should be addressed before any type of vision correction procedure.
