Dry eyes are a common condition that occurs when your eyes are unable to produce enough tears or maintain proper lubrication.

Aging, hormonal changes, and certain medications can also contribute to the development of dry eyes.

What Are the Early Signs and Symptoms of Diabetic Retinopathy?

Diabetic retinopathy is a serious eye condition that can significantly impair one's vision. This condition develops because of prolonged high blood sugar levels in individuals with diabetes, primarily Type 1 and Type 2.

Understanding this condition is the first step towards preventing its occurrence or controlling its progression.
