Dry eye syndrome and eye allergies are not the same things, although they are often confused for one another. Dry eye syndrome occurs when the eyes aren’t able to make enough natural tear film, or it drains too quickly. It can also occur if the substances that make up tear film aren’t perfectly balanced. The symptoms of seasonal allergies are very similar to that of dry eye syndrome, but with one distinct difference – itchiness.
