Dry Eye Syndrome is due to a dysfunctional tear film. When you blink, the tear film spreads over the front surface of the eye. The tear film is comprised of three main layers: oil, water and mucus. Within those three layers are many tiny electrolytes and proteins that create a stable mixture for a functional layer on the eye. This layer provides consistent vision, protection, healing properties, and comfort. When the layers are not performing adequately or the layers are overrun with inflammation, breakdown in the tears occur and dry eye disease begins.

 

Symptoms of dry eye range from mild to severe

Gritty, itchy, and sandy sensation
