Dry eyes disease is one of the most common problems which affect many people in U.S and across the world. The eyes start drying when tears fail to supply required amount of moisture to the eyes.
There are two main conditions for this:
- Excessive evaporation
- Aqueous tear deficiency
Excessive evaporation occurs when the evaporation of tears is faster than the normal rate. Aqueous tear deficiency is a condition in which enough tears are not produced by the eyes. Dry spots are visible when edges of the eyes are not protected.

In some cases it may be a dry eye syndrome as the dry eyes might be from other reason, so it is not recommended to take at ease.
