2. Gritty Eyes
Patients who are dealing with the onset of bulging eye disorder may start to notice that they experience the sensation of grit in their eyes. When the eyes dry out due to the beginning of dry eye disorder, the lack of moisture in the eyelids causes the eyelid to scratch the surface of the cornea lens. The cornea lens is a thin membrane covering the cornea, and when it dries out the patient experiences irritation that leads to a gritty feeling in the eye.
Some medical professionals refer to this condition as “sandy eyes,” due to the feeling of having foreign bodies floating around in the eye. In actuality, the reason for the irritation is due to the eyelids forming scars on the inner side. These tiny scars rub against the membrane covering the cornea, causing the sensations of irritation.
Using natural tears and other eye drop solutions may help to provide some relief from the condition. However, in some cases, the severity of dry eye syndrome may result in an exacerbation in your symptoms of bulging eyes.
