What Causes Dry Eyes?

Life style, age and gender can contribute to dry eyes. Staring at tablets and computer screens, daily exposure to air conditioning, wind, smoke and dry climates are the major causes. Long term use of contact lenses, refractive surgery and some medications can worsen the dry eye syndrome symptoms.
