The link between allergies and dry eye

admin Dry Eyes

Red, watery eyes are the hallmark of both allergies and dry eye. For a long time, scientists thought of these conditions as separate, but it turns out they may have something in common: the seasons.

Dry eye can significantly impact a person’s quality of life by inducing burning, irritation and blurred vision. This common condition affects about 1 in 5 women and 1 in 10 men, and costs the U.S. health care system nearly $4 billion a year.
