Home > Dry Eye
Do you have irritated eyes, a feeling of tiredness, burning, grittiness, mucus, itching, the need to blink a lot, redness or tearing? These are some of the symptoms that so many of us experience and just try to ignore. You may not realize that these symptoms are part of a condition called "Dry Eye Syndrome" or simply "Dry Eye" and that there is now excellent relief available.
The surface of the eye is coated by a soothing tear film. The tear film is actually made up of three separate layers a layer that helps the tear film stay on the eye, a water layer and finally a layer of oil from the eyelid glands that helps keep the tears from evaporating. Any one of these layers can have problems and cause the common symptoms of dry eye.
For many of us, irritation and tiredness of the eyes comes at the end of the day, or when we're reading or working on a computer. For others, we experience redness, irritation and tearing when we are in the wind or in air-conditioned rooms. These are all situations where the tears evaporate faster. Still others suffer from chronic irritation and itching, or stringy mucus and sticky eyelids. All of these are signs of problems with one or more of the layers of the tear film.
