Mild Dry Eye and Prevention
Dry eye syndrome is a common ocular surface disease in which the tear film is affected. Causes can be related to the environment (wind, sun, dust, living in high altitudes…), lifestyle (staring at screens for long periods of time, poor nutrition, eye surgery…) or physical condition (hormonal changes, aging, Sjögren’s Syndrome, thyroid eye conditions…).
There are two types of dry eye: aqueous deficient and evaporative. However, about one third of patients show a combination of both, which means the signs and symptoms often overlap.
Dry eye symptoms include watery eyes, pain and redness, blurred vision, stinging or burning of the eye, and sandy or gritty feeling.
