  • Burning or itching around the eyes
  • Blurry vision
  • Feelings of eye sensitivity in bright light
  • Increased dryness after reading or staring at the computer for many hours
  • Excessive tearing as the eyes try to compensate for the dryness
  • Changes in weather conditions worsen the symptoms of dry eye. For example, windy weather, hold weather and low-humidity climates
