Do I have Dry Eye

Dry eyes can become red and irritated, causing a feeling of scratchiness. Symptoms of dry eyes and dry eye syndrome include:

  • Burning sensation
  • Itchy eyes
  • Aching sensations
  • Heavy eyes
  • Fatigued eyes
  • Sore eyes
  • Dryness sensation
  • Red eyes
  • Photophobia (light sensitivity)
  • Blurred vision

Also, counterintuitively, watery eyes also can be a symptom of dry eye syndrome. This is due to dryness on the eye’s surface can over-stimulate tear production as a protective mechanism. But this does not stay on the eye long enough to correct the underlying dry eye condition.
