What are the symptoms of dry eye?
The symptoms are numerous:
- Tingling, itching
- Burning sensation, sand or foreign body in the eyes
- Sensitivity to light, wind or tobacco smoke
- Difficulties to open the eyes in the morning, feeling of eyelids stuck
- Absence of tears in situations known to trigger their secretion (during emotion, peeling onions...)
- Difficulty wearing contact lenses
- Impression of a decrease in visual acuity
But dry eye can be asymptomatic.
