The Importance Of Your Tear Film

Do you know that a film of tears spreads over the eye as you blink?

It actually makes the eyes surface smooth and clear, helping prevent dry eye disease. That’s the reason why blinking constantly is essential to fight off dry eyes and eye strain.

The tear film consists of three key components:

  • Lipid Layer – Prevents evaporation and provides lubrication for the eyelids.
  • Aqueous Layer – Comprised mainly of water and other solutes to nourish the eye.
  • Mucous Layer – Allows the aqueous layer to adhere to the eye’s surface.

Defying dry eyes is very much doable and attainable.

You just need proper eye practice and of course, appropriate care and treatments.
