Can dry eyes cause sharp eye pain or can dry eyes cause glaucoma?
I haven't been diagnosed as such but I have dry eye and I use artificial tears every day. Sometimes (especially when my eyes are very tired), I experience a sharp pain in one or both my eyes. It only lasts for several seconds and then goes away.
I think it might be because of dry eyes, but I'm worried that it might be something more serious like glaucoma. Is there a connection between sharp pain in the eyes, dryness and glaucoma?
