tears may be needed. The most common symptom of dry eyes is tearing.
When the eye is dry, your bodies back up mechanism will cause tearing to help
prevent further damage to the cornea. Other symptoms include light sensitivity,
red eyes, blurred vision, and foreign body sensations. A person with dry eyes
should use artificial tears throughout the day and warm compresses for 10 minutes.
People with severe dry eyes may need prescription strength tears. Other treatment
