Dry Eye Is A Disease

Do you feel like you’ve been suffering from dry eyes? You might have dry eye disease.

Dry eye is a multifactorial disease of the tears and ocular surface that results in symptoms of discomfort, visual disturbance, and tear film instability with potential damage to the ocular surface. It is accompanied by increased osmolarity of the tear film and inflammation of the ocular surface.

Dry Eye Disease/Syndrome can be caused by all sorts of issues, from dry weather and A/C to smoke and heat.

Millions of people suffer from dry eye disease or syndrome. Yet in most cases, it goes undiagnosed with a patient not even knowing he or she has dry eyes. Often, this is due to the fact that sufferers misunderstand the symptoms.
