Dry eye is a condition in which the eyes are not able to remain adequately lubricated or nourished because they either don’t make enough tears, or they don’t make quality tears. Dry eye is very common condition that can sometimes be managed with non-prescription medication; typically, artificial tears. However, sometimes it’s necessary to visit your optometrist in Clermont.
