What is Dry Eye?

Dry eyes are a pain. We’re here to help you find relief.

We can design a custom treatment plan for you based on the root cause of your symptoms. Dry eyes can cause undue strain and fatigue on your eyes, and even lead to corneal damage. It’s important to address your symptoms early to avoid long-term issue with your vision.
Book a consultation with us today.

What Causes Dry Eye?

Dry eyes are caused by 2 main factors: inadequate tear volume and poor tear quality. Our eyes depend on a healthy and balanced tear film to stay lubricated. When we aren’t able to produce enough tears or the tears we do produce are poor quality, our eyes become dry and irritated.

Tear-Drop-Illustration-Inadequate-Tear-Volume

Inadequate Tear Volume

Our bodies produce tears using several different glands located in and around our eyelids. As we age, our eyes aren’t able to produce as many tears as they once did, which can cause dry eyes. Some medical conditions and medications can also impact tear production.

Environmental factors can also cause dry eyes. Even if we can produce enough tears, dry air or windy weather can cause our tears to evaporate too quickly.

Tear-Drop-Illustration-Poor-Tear-Quality

Poor Tear Quality

Tears are made up of 3 main ingredients: oil, water, and mucus. Meibum, the oil layer, is the outer tear layer, forming a thin protective barrier and preventing our tears from evaporating too quickly. Mucin helps our tears spread evenly across the surface of our eyes, protecting our corneas. If our tears evaporate too quickly, or our tears are not uniformly distributed, it can result in dry eyes.
