What Causes Chronic Dry Eye Syndrome?

Dry Eye Calgary Treatment By Market Mall Optometrist

When the eyes do not produce enough tears to supply necessary nourishment and lubrication or produce tears that do not have the proper chemical composition, Chronic Dry Eye Syndrome occurs. The tears your eyes produce are essential for overall eye health and clear vision. Problems or imbalance with the oil, mucus or water layer of the tear film can cause dry eyes. Here are some common causes of dry eyes in Calgary that can be treated at our clinic:


Natural aging process

Changes in hormones
Exposure to certain environmental conditions
Decreased blinking leading to eyes drying out
Side effects of medication
