Dry Eye Syndrome usually is a chronic problem, especially if it is blepharitis and Meibomian Gland Dysfunction. Its prognosis shows considerable variance, depending upon the severity of the condition. Most people have mild-to-moderate cases, and can be treated symptomatically with lubricants or oral capsules like TheraLife Eye. This provides a sustainable relief of symptoms to prevent future damages such as cornea aberrations, which may require cornea transplantation.
When dry eyes symptoms are severe, they can interfere with quality of life and cause depression. People sometimes feel their vision blurs with use, or severe irritation to the point that they have trouble keeping their eyes open or they may not be able to work or drive.
Dry eyes are now recognized as a common cause of depression. NIH
