In brief: Dry eye symptoms

The most common symptomof dry eye is tearing! this confuses most patients, it is caused by the eye producing excess aqueous tears (watery component).
Tears are really a 3 layer sandwich fat on top to prevent evaporation water in the middle and mucous to aid spreading on the bottom. Loss or decrease of any component causes symptoms. An eye dr can measure or analyze for this.
