Dry eye syndrome is very common among adults and affects over 5 million Americans ages 50 and up. Dry eyes are more common among women and its prevalence increases with age. The amount of people affected by dry eyes is expected to increase given today’s modernized digital world. Extensive use of smartphones, tablets and handheld electronics are contributing factors to dry eyes. Whether it’s long hours in front of a computer or excessive exposure to smartphone screens, many individuals put their eyes through enough strain to cause dry eyes.
