Dry eye syndrome, also known as keratoconjunctivitis sicca (KCS), is a multi-factorial disease of the eye caused by dryness, decreased tear production, or increased tear film evaporation. It results in symptoms of discomfort such as visual disturbance and tear film instability (DEWS, 2007). Middle-aged and older adults are the most commonly affected group because of the high prevalence of contact lens usage, systemic drug effects, autoimmune diseases, and refractive surgeries in these group (Davis, 2003; Glasson et al., 2003; Schaumberg et al., 2002; Schaumberg et al., 2003; Toda et al., 2001).

Globally, dry eye has a prevalence of up to 33% (Clegg et al., 2006; Lemp et al., 2008; Schaumberg et al., 2002; Shimmura et al., 1999). The prevalence of dry

eye is estimated to range from30% in various ages groups worldwide (Clegg et al., 2006; Lemp et al., 2008; Shimmura et al., 1999). Research also shows that dry eye syndrome is more prevalent in women than in men (Schaumberg et al., 2002).
