WHAT IS DRY EYE?
Dry Eye is a tear film disorder and is caused by the reduced production or the excessive evaporation of tears, this in turn can cause damage to the exposed ocular surface and is also associated with eye sensitivity.
Excessive evaporation of tears (in 86% of cases this is the reason why a patient would be suffering from dry eye) is induced by the obstruction or malfunction of the Meibomian glands that are located in the eyelids, and are responsible for producing the tears lipid layer.
