Do your eyes often sting or itch? Notice your vision is blurry or your eyes seem to be leaking mucus? You may be suffering from a very common condition known as dry eyes. In fact, over 6 million people in Canada suffer from dry eye. Our eyes are designed to produce tears at varying levels. However, some people do not generate enough tears to keep their eyes healthy and hydrated. Various factors such as lifestyle, health and even medications can increase a patient’s risk of developing dry eye syndrome.
