Dry eyes is one of the most common problems that affects the eyes, which is also called keratoconjunctivitis and sicca. Unlike the dry eyes syndrome, which happens recurrently or is more intense, this problem is rather temporary. It happens because of lack of tears and lubrication in the eyes, which makes them irritated and causes swelling and redness too.

Dry eyes can be diagnosed through a comprehensive eye examination. Testing, with emphasis on the evaluation of the quantity and quality of tears produced by the eyes, may include:
• Patient history to determine the patient's symptoms and to note any general health problems, medications or environmental factors that may be contributing to the dry eye problem.
• External examination of the eye, including lid structure and blink dynamics.
• Evaluation of the eyelids and cornea using bright light and magnification.
• Measurement of the quantity and quality of tears for any abnormalities
HOW IS DRY EYES TREATED?
Ophthalmology is perhaps one of the best available solutions. However, there are treatment options available in homeopathy and ayurveda too, which includes preventive measures. In most cases, doctors prescribe eye drops along with other forms of lubricants to control and curb the problem. Also, there are some other antibacterial drops given for reducing the irritation and preventing infection.
