Due to increasing pollution , there is increase in the incidence of dry eye
and ocular allergy. This is causing discomfort even in normal eyes and
aggravates the eye complaints in eyes that are prone to dryness and
allergies," said Rajesh Sinha, professor of Ophthalmology, AIIMS. "If
care is not taken immediately, some of these eyes can have reduced vision due
to this problem as well," he added.

Lal also said that people with complains of itching in the eyes are likely
to suffer from allergic eye disease. Patients with pre-existing dry eyes may
experience excessive dryness, irritation and burning due to ocular surface
inflammation.
