    This may be due to a number of causes: Important reasons are our daily work on the computer, or permanent communication via smart phone in everyday life.

    Wearing contact lenses or various illnesses may also give rise to such symptoms.

    The most frequent causes at a glance:

    • reduced blinking frequency, e. g.
      due to screen work, smart phones
    • staying in air-conditioned rooms
    • the ageing process

    • autoimmunological diseases, e. g. Sjögren’s syndrome
    • taking certain medicines
    • wearing contact lenses
    • eye surgery (LASIK, cataract surgery)
  • Symptoms

    The most frequent symptom for dry eyes is a feeling of dryness. Not all the symptoms, however, constitute a reason to conclude that you have dry eyes. Thus, watering eyes may indicate, for example, that insufficient tear fluid is being produced. The eyes compensate this lack by starting to water.
