Keratoconjunctivitis sicca

Constant dryness of the cornea (the transparent front part of the eyeball) and the conjunctiva (membrane covering the eyeball) brought on by deficiency in tear production. The condition is associated with autoimmune disorders such as, systemic lupus erythmatosus, rheumatoid arthritis and Sjogrens syndrome, all of which can impair the tear gland. Prolonged dryness can lead to blurred vision, grittiness, itching and in extreme cases, the formation of a corneal ulcer. The most effective treatment is constant use of artificial tears.
