While it may sound strange, people with dry eye may find their eyes water quite a bit. This is because the eye is responding to the irritation of this condition. Dry-eye sufferers may find that they feel like they cannot keep their eyes open for very long. They may also find their eyes feel more uncomfortable after reading or watching television.
Dry eye symptoms usually include:
• Stinging or burning eyes;
• Stringy mucus in or around the eyes;
• Excessive eye irritation from smoke or wind;
• Excess tearing;
• Discomfort when wearing contact lenses.
