Eye drops are a convenient treatment for several common eye conditions such as dry eyes, irritation, allergies, red eyes, and general discomfort. Experiencing dry eye syndrome or dry eyes is a part of everyday life. And if you are a contact lens wearer, you might be more prone to dry eyes, but it is not only lens wearers that are susceptible to this common eye issue.

Different causes of dry eyes

As well as wearing contact lenses, there are many other causes of dry or irritable eyes. For example, if aged 50 or over, you may find that you are more sensitive to eye dryness. Working conditions can also cause dry eyes, if you stare at screens for extended periods of the day without rest, your eyes may become itchy and irritated. Also, spending time in air-conditioned or heated environments can cause dry eyes. Some other causes can occur if:

- it is windy, cold, dry, or dusty

- you smoke or drink alcohol

- you take certain medicines (for example, some antidepressants or blood pressure drugs)

- you have a condition, such as blepharitis, Sjögren's syndrome or lupus

Each eye drop can provide instant relief and help your overall eye health.
