The Effects of Temperature and Humidity on Dry Eye Symptoms

Winter is here again in full force – with all its blustery, moisture-sapping weather. We’re either outside with the whipping wind or indoors with our heater going full blast. In these environments the humidity is low, increasing dry eye symptoms.

The Effects of Temperature and Humidity on Dry Eye Symptoms.
When humidity is low, symptoms of Dry Eye Syndrome are high. Fortunately, there are ways to add humidity to the equation, even during the dry winter months.

Yet, that’s just the way it is right? Dry, scratchy, irritated eyes are just something we have to deal with every time the winter months roll around? Not at all.

We can control the effects of temperature and humidity on dry eye symptoms.

The enemy here isn’t winter per se, it’s the lack of humidity – which can occur during any season and throughout the year in the artificial climate we create indoors.

So what’s the solution? Moisture is the answer. Our eyes crave humidity. The eyelids are the thinnest skin on the body and when moisture is subtracted from the equation, increasing tear evaporation, it results in dry irritated eyes and blurry vision.

To maintain healthy eyes and vision it’s sometimes necessary to add moisture to the eyes. Using a humidifier in your home will help combat the dry air. In addition, Eye Eco has a broad range of products specifically designed to bring, effective, natural relief to dry eyes.
