About the symptom

Dry eye is a common condition that occurs when the tears aren't able to provide adequate lubrication for the eyes.

When to see a doctor

Seek professional care if you experience any of the following symptoms

  • Altered mental status (delirium)

  • Muscle weakness in the limbs

  • Eye pain

  • Numbness / sensory disorder

  • Jaundice

  • Easy bruising

  • Difficulty breathing / breathlessness

Possible causes

  • Pulmonary fibrosis

    A disease where the lungs become stiff from repeated bouts of damage. The causes include autoimmune disease (where the immune system attacks the body), medications, genetic abnormalities, and dust made of fine particles. There may not be symptoms at first, but most patients will develop a dry cough and breathlessness as the condition worsens.

  • Sjogren syndrome

    An autoimmune disease where the immune system attacks the organs that produce tears and saliva. This results in dry eyes and dry mouth. In some cases, the internal organs can also be gradually affected.

  • Corneal damage

    Corneal damage is a wound to the part of the eye known as the cornea. The cornea is the crystal clear (transparent) tissue that covers the front of the eye.

  • Familial amyloid polyneuropathy
  • Autoimmune hepatitis

  • Felty syndrome
