Dry Eye is a reduction in your eyes’ ability to produce or maintain sufficient quantity and quality of natural tears.
Insufficient tears can lead to:
• Irritated, painful eyes
• Increased risk of eye infection
• Negative effects on vision
• Damage to the eye surface
An estimated 25 million Americans suffer from Dry Eye symptoms.
In fact, Dry Eye symptoms are commonly reported among people visiting their eye doctor.
• Gritty and sandy feeling
• Swelling/puffy eyes
• Eye pain
• Light sensitivity
• Transient blurred vision
• “Something in my eye” feeling
• Discomfort during contact lens wear
• Stringy mucus in or around the eyes
• Excessive tearing
Tears are important to the overall health of our eyes and our vision.
Each time we blink, a protective coating of tears is spread like a film over the front of our eye. If we don’t blink often enough, dry spots can develop on the surface of the eye and can cause our vision to decrease. Thus, our tear film serves four important purposes:
1. Protects and lubricates the eyes
2. Reduces the risk of eye infection
3. Washes away foreign particles
4. Keeps the surface of the eyes smooth and clear
When our tear film becomes unstable, Dry Eye symptoms can occur. Over-the-counter artificial tears, like REFRESH PLUS®, are designed to temporarily relieve dry, burning, irritated eyes due to Dry Eye.
