Dry eyes are more of a symptom than a medical condition, although lack of tears can be associated with disease processes such as sarcoidosis or blocked tear ducts. A persistence of this problem needs to be seen by a doctor.

Most frequently dry eyes are associated with adverse weather conditions or mild conjunctivitis .


Persisting dryness or dryness without obvious cause needs to be reviewed by a doctor.

Rule out an association of dry eyes with smoking, poor-quality air-conditioning or allergies to airborne or food antigens. If associated, try to change the situations.
