Dry Eye Treatment Frequently Asked Questions
Dry eye syndrome is when someone experiences a constant lack of moisture and lubrication in the eyes, creating everything from inflammation and irritation, and can leave the eye vulnerable to any debris or dust in the air that could potentially cause an issue. When dealing with dry eye syndrome, it can potentially lead to scarring and other issues when left untreated.
How does dry eye occur?
Your eyes need a few essential components to create tears. They need all of these to be working at the same time or you will have an issue with creating sufficient lubrication and tears for your eyes. Those who experience dry eye are usually people who are using the computer or screens too often, live in dry or windy climates and environments, fly regularly, or those who smoke. As you age, dry eye is more likely to affect you as well.
