(Undated) — If your eyes are irritated and scratchy you could have Dry Eye Syndrome, triggered or made worse by Canadian wildfire smoke. People with the condition often say it’s worse in the winter, but it can occur year round.

He says it can usually be treated with warm compresses to the eyes, topical lubricants and anti-inflammatory medications.
