2) Dry Eyes
Symptoms: Dry eyes feel uncomfortable and can sting or scratch when blinking. It can lead to eye twitching.
Possible Causes: Dry eyes are a common complaint that occurs when one doesn’t produce enough moisture to keep the eyes properly lubricated. This could result from a lack of tears, poor quality tears or a blockage of the tear duct. Environmental factors such as extreme heat and dryness can be a factor as can long exposure to air-conditioning. Many people experience dry eyes on long intercontinental air flights.
Solutions: Eye drops, drinking enough water and making sure that makeup is properly removed can all help.
