The Dry Eye

WHAT IS THE DRY EYE ?

The Dry Eye is a tear film disorder due to reduced production or excessive evaporation of tears, which causes damages to the exposed ocular surface and is associated to a sensation of eye discomfort.

Excessive evaporation of tears (cause of 86% of Dry Eye cases) 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.
When not working properly, the Meibomian gland does not produce enough oily components for the tear film, which consequently evaporates quicker. Insufficient or absent lipid layer, can cause tear evaporation up to 16 times faster.
