When you blink, certain amount of tears circulates across the cornea, which is the front part of the eye.
Tear film normally consists of three main layers, which form integral protective barrier.
The outer layer is made up of oily material, produced by the meibomian glands. It is designed to prevent excessive evaporation of the tears.
The middle part contains high amount of water-soluble proteins and liquid, created by the lacrimal glands.
Goblet cells produce mucin (internal layer) to help watery layer stick to the eye and to improve moistening.
If your eyes stop to produce enough tears, or if tear composition becomes imbalanced, you may suffer from eye dryness.
This may occur as a result of inflammatory processes in the eyelids (blepharitis), autoimmune disorders (like rheumatoid arthritis or lupus) or after looking at computer for a long time.
Some medications such as diuretics, beta blockers, antihistamines, antidepressants and birth control pills may trigger too-few-tear problem.
Actually women are much more likely to get dry eye syndrome. It's mainly about hormonal alterations, occurred during pregnancy and menopause.
Wind, smoke and extremely dry climate may be also responsible for reduced production of the tears.
When your eyes fail to generate enough tears, you may feel like something is in your eyes. Burning, itching and redness are the most common symptoms of dry eye syndrome.
It's not uncommon that lack of lubrication results in excessive production of the tears and blurred vision.

It may appear really hard to wear contact lenses or drive a car at nighttime.
For most of us, who suffer from occasional eye dryness, using over-the-counter artificial tears (eye drops) can help improve the condition.
But if your eye are always too dry, some special treatment may be required.
For some cases, changing your daily medicines may make you feel really better.
Your doctor may recommend you antibiotics, if unpleasant sensations are caused by infection.
Sometimes inflammation may be controlled only with the aid of prescription immune-suppressing medications that are available in eye drops (cyclosporine).
If artificial tears don't help you get rid of eye dryness, special inserts may be the optimal way. These little things are placed between the lower eyelid and the eyeball. Inserts dissolve bit by bit, releasing lubricant for your eyes.
