What causes eyes to become dry?

Our eyes can become dry and uncomfortable for a variety of reasons. Environmental factors such as spending time in rooms that are heated or air-conditioned can cause the eye to loose moisture and become dry. Irritants such as dust and smoke can irritate the surface of the eye. Modern life can require many hours spent staring at screens which can strain our eyes and also cause them to become dehydrated and uncomfortable. If you wear contact lenses often, they can dehydrate the eye. There are many steps you can take to ensure your eyes stay healthy and comfortable. Take regular breaks from screens and use eye drops if your working/living environment regularly causes your eyes to become dry. If you are spending time in places where your eyes could be affected by foreign bodies or irritants like spores, particles, dust or smoke, ensure you are wearing effective eye protection. Take breaks from your contacts by wearing your glasses.

The drops lubricate the surface of the eye to soothe and treat dryness.
