Dry Eye Management

What is Dry eye Syndrome?

Dry eye disease is a common condition that can occur when your tears aren’t able to provide adequate lubrication for your eyes. Tears can be unstable and inadequate for many reasons. There are three layers that make up the tear film which include an aqueous layer, a mucus layer and an oil layer. When the stability of any of these layers is affected, dry eye symptoms can occur.

Signs and symptoms, which usually affect both eyes may include:

  • Stinging, burning or a scratchy sensation in your eyes
  • A foreign body sensation, or feeling that you have something in your eyes
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Eye Redness
  • Blurred Vision or Eye Fatigue
