The Connection Between Dry Eyes and Eye Pressure

In my recent quest to understand eye health, I've discovered an intriguing connection between dry eyes and eye pressure. It turns out that dry eyes can actually increase eye pressure, potentially leading to serious conditions like glaucoma. This is due to the fact that dry eyes can cause inflammation and blockage in the eye's drainage system, causing pressure to build up. It's essential to treat dry eye symptoms to maintain healthy eye pressure and avoid these risks. So, keeping our eyes well-lubricated is not just about comfort, but also key to preserving our overall eye health.
