While dry eye syndrome can cause considerable discomfort year-round, winter is often when symptoms are at their worst. Seasonal factors such as dry air, cold temperatures, and harsh wind can cause your eyes to feel more irritated than usual. Additionally, some over-the-counter cold medicines are known to exacerbate dry eye. If you can’t find relief, it’s time to visit Kirk Eye Center.
