Dry Eyes and Winter Months

Chronic dry eye is a problem for many individuals that can often become very uncomfortable. As many who struggle with this condition are aware, it has the tendency to worsen in the winter months.  This is because during winter months the air is much drier than in summer months. Also, during winter months, many people use heating devices, which can worsen the condition of chronic dry eyes. Some symptoms of chronic dry eyes are burning, blurred vision, and feeling like you have something in your eye. In order for your eyes to be functioning properly, they require plenty of moisture.
