Are your eyes dry and itchy or red? Do they sometimes appear to cry for no reason? Dry eye syndrome is a lack of lubrication on the eye's surface that leads to constant irritation and even inflammation. Causes include living in a dry, dusty climate, ageing, menopause, side effects from medications and wearing contact lenses. Preservative-free lubricating eye drops can provide relief. Life Pharmacy stock the leading eye care brands including Bausch + Lomb and Opti-Free.
