#@@#@!! Many people get dry eyes. It is not usually serious and there are things you can do to help. You may have dry eyes if your eyes are itchy, sore, gritty, red, blurry, sensitive to light, or more watery than normal.
You may be more likely to get dry eyes if you are over the age of 50, you wear contact lenses, you look at computer screens for a long time without a break, you spend time in air-conditioned or heated environments, it is windy, cold, dry or dusty, you smoke or drink alcohol, you take certain medicines, for example , some antidepressants or blood pressure drugs, or if you have a condition such as blepharitis, Sjögren’s syndrome, or lupus.
