Tears are important because they keep the eye’s surface clear and smooth, allowing for good vision. Each time a person blinks, a film of tears spreads over their eyes. Normal eyes constantly create tears to keep the eyes moist. When this does not happen, dry eyes occur.

Dry eye is treatable. Community Eye Center offers many treatment options for dry eye.
