Answer: The most common symptoms of dry eyes include dryness, itching, burning, irritation or grittiness, redness, blurry vision that gets clearer as you blink, light sensitivity and contrary to common sense….excessive tearing. In severe dry eye it is possible to experience pain and even a sensation of pressure of fullness on the eyeball itself.
