    What is Dry Eye?

    Understanding About

    Dry Eye

    Dry eye, or dry eye disease (DED), is a common condition characterized by an imbalance in the tear film on the eye’s surface. This imbalance leads to discomfort, irritation, and sometimes vision problems.

    The causes of dry eye are varied and include factors related to the eyes, anatomy, and overall health. Assessing patients with dry eye symptoms is crucial for timely treatment, which can greatly improve quality of life. 

    The tear film consists of lipid, aqueous, and mucin layers, each serving a specific function in maintaining eye health. Understanding these components and their role in tear film stability is essential for effective management of dry eye.
