Using eye drops for Dry eye:

As you get older, your body makes fewer, lower-quality tears. You may also have more than you used to. These are called reflex tears. But they don’t stick around

long enough to get your eye wet.

Other signs of dry eyes are:

  • Sandy or scratchy feeling
  • Burning or stinging
  • Pain
  • Redness
  • Stringy discharge
  • Heavy eyelids
  • Changes in vision

Over-the-counter artificial tears can help, but you should use them only during the day.

PLEASE NOTE: NEVER RUB YOUR EYES – EVER!

Very important: Always make sure you discuss and make decisions about your eye care based upon a formal appointment with your optician.
