    Chronic dry eye occurs when eyes do not produce the right quantity or quality of tears. It is often caused by hormonal changes due to aging and menopause or medical conditions and can be exacerbated by environmental conditions. Symptoms of dry eye can vary greatly from one person to the next, often fluctuating throughout the day, usually becoming worse later in the day, and may include itching, irritation, sensitivity to light, blurred vision, dryness and foreign body sensation. Dry eye can be a progressive disease that, if left untreated, can lead to increased risk of infection or visual impairment. Tears are a major protective agent for the eyes. Hence, you should start to use artificial tears as natural tears to moisture your eyes frequently. Or you can utilize the over-the-counter eye drops to relieve the symptoms of chronic dry eye. On the other hand, you can intake food that contains a large amount of vitamin A, which is a good nutrient like banana, or intake vitamin A as supplement directly in daily life.

    Dry eye is a disease caused by abnormal function of conjunctiva and cornea epithelium due to the insufficient amount of tears. Those who get dry eyes are sensitive to the air, especially under the circumstance of blowing wind, they feel their cornea dry and such feeling is stronger at night or when they wake up in the morning. In daily life, pay attention to the health care of eyes, such as keeping your mental relaxed, taking a rest when your eyes feel strained. When watching TV or using computers, make sure that they are under the position of your eyes level and make sure that the time you spend on them is not long.
