Besides, dehydration can also causes many bad effects on eyes. In mild and moderate dehydration, the bad effects not only on eyes but also on other organs, theses symptoms may include: dry eyes, dizziness, light-headedness, decreased urine output, muscle weakness, etc. However, when dehydration is more severe, you may go through theses uncomfortable experience:extreme thirst, extreme dry mouth and eyes, loss of elasticity in the skin, passing small amounts of dark, concentrated urine, sunken eyes, lack of sweating, fast heartbeat, low blood pressure, loss of consciousness,etc. Mild dehydration can be easily treated by drinking enough water and other fluids, such as diluted fruit juice.

    Dehydration would decrease or even stop the production of tear in eyes. The vision would be blurred. Dehydration refers to a condition that the amount of water we lose is bigger than the amount we intake. The most part of human body is water. We are losing water every minute in our lift, as evaporation, urination, breathing and sweeting and so on.
