What Causes Dry Eye and What Are The Symptoms of Dry Eye?
Dry eye is a chronic disease in which our eyes do not produce enough tears or enough quality tears due to a disruption in one or more of the three layers of our tear film. This condition affects about 30 million people. The signs and symptoms of dry eye vary from person to person and range in severity. Environmental agents, medications, hormone changes and our day to day activities are contributing factors.
The use of artificial tears was the primary method of treating dry eye. Over the past several years, different diagnostic tests have been used to diagnose dry eye and introduce new treatment methods to better manage the disease.
