What is Dry Eye?

Tears help your eyes to stay moist, healthy and comfortable. Dry eye is an eye condition that affects the quantity or quality of your tears causing your eyes to feel dry and irritated.

Why your eyes may feel dry?

The layer of tear film on your eyes is constantly thinning out and evaporating. Normally, this process, known as tear film break-up, isn't a problem: new tears are continually being produced to maintain your tear film. When you blink, that's just your body's automatic reflex to spread new tear film across your eyes.
Problems arise, however, when the quantity or quality of your tearfilm changes. If you're producing an insufficient amount or inadequate quality of tears you may begin to develop dry spots on the surface of your eye.These dry spots may make your eyes feel uncomfortable.

Burning, dry eye making your Life miserable?

Grittiness, scratchiness, stinging, burning and foreign body sensation: these symptoms can be the result of inadequate wetting and lubrication of the eye.

What causes dry eye?

There are many reasons why dry eye can occur. It may be age-related, due to decreased tear production as we age. It can even be a result of work habits such as spending too much time staring at a computer screen. Dry eye also can develop from your environment.
For women, sometimes the cause is hormonal. Whatever the cause, remember that dry eye is a treatable condition for most patients.
