A 28-year-old female asked:

Can light sensitivity be treatable when you have dry eye sindrome? or is it permanent?

Temporary: Most light sensitivity in dry eyes is due to surface disturbance of the cornea from the dryness. When the treatment for the dryness is successful, then the light sensitivity usually disappears. Discuss with your ophthalmologist the best way to eliminate the dry eye problem.
