Keratoconjunctivitis sicca

Updated: 2017-06-13


Dry eye (keratoconjunctivitis sicca) occurs when tears aren't able to provide adequate moisture for the membrane on the eye's surface (the conjunctiva). The eye may become dry, red, and inflamed.


The main symptoms are discomfort and sensitivity to light.


Prescription and lubricating eyedrops can reduce dryness.
