Dry eye syndrome, a chronic progressive condition, is caused due to the lack of tear liquid that lubricates the eyes. The medical term for dry eye syndrome is keratoconjunctivitis sicca. Dry eye syndrome is a common ocular disorder among aging people. Aging weakens the tear glands, resulting in the insufficient production of tear fluids. This promotes the development of dry eye syndrome. The regular use of contact lenses is also one of the primary causes of this eye disorder. A decrease in the production of tears also leads to dry eye syndrome in the elderly. 

The treatment for dry eye syndrome depends and differs as per its severity and the cause. Dry eye syndrome, in most of the cases, can be successfully managed, resulting in minimized dryness in the eyes, improved eye comfort, and sharper vision. A combination of treatments such as artificial tears, warm compressors, punctal plugs, and steroid eye drops can be used to cure the dry eye syndrome. Artificial tears can help in minimizing the deficiency of tears to lubricate the eyes. 

Warm compressors can help boost the activity of glands to produce more tears. Steroid eye drops are used to calm irritation around eyes to boost the natural production of tears. Punctal plugs are small medical devices inserted into the tear duct to prevent the drainage of eye liquid. With the presence of several remedial measures, more patients are projected to opt for dry eye syndrome treatments and therapeutics.

This is expected to benefit the global market in the years to come.
