Marchetti said that when eyes are “overused, or there is a lack of blinking”, the tear glands don’t produce enough tears to lubricate the eyes.
“When this eye action fails, dry spots appear on the surface of the eye,” she pointed out.
Dry eye syndrome can make driving and reading uncomfortable, and you may become more sensitive to light.
“As a consequence, concentration can also be affected,” said Marchetti, which means you could be a danger to other people on the roads.
