XiiDRA targets inflammation, a source of dry eye symptoms

DRY EYE SHOULDN'T BE SUCH A SORE SUBJECT.

Dry Eye Disease can be a chronic condition. Your eye doctor may call it "dry eye disease," or simply "dry eye." No matter what you call it, dry eye is a pretty common eye condition. It can also be pretty annoying, interrupting you while you read, drive, watch TV, or sneak in a little online shopping.
