Dry Eye FAQs
Dry Eye Syndrome, or Keratoconjunctivitis Sicca, is the chronic lack of lubrication or moisture to the surface of the eyes. The affects of dry eye disease can range from subtle eye irritation to significant inflammation resulting in corneal scarring.
In healthy eyes, tears known as basal tears are constantly lubricating the ocular surface. Tears are squeezed out of glands with every blink of the eye and are spread across the conjunctiva and cornea. In dry eye patients, the lacrimal glands fail to produce enough basal tears or the composition of the tears are compromised causing the tears to be unstable.
Dry Eye Syndrome results from insufficient tear production or an imbalance of tear composition causing the tears to evaporate too quickly.
Although there are a vast number of factors that contribute to Dry Eye Syndrome, some of the most common include the following:
- Increased age
- Post-menopausal hormonal changes
- Autoimmune diseases including Sjogrens Syndrome, Scleroderma, Lupus, and Rheumatoid Arthritis
- Various medications
- Refractive Surgery
Symptoms of Dry Eyes should be carefully evaluated by an eye care professional. There are a series of tests that can be performed to determine the type of Dry Eye being experienced.
The results of the testing will help guide your eye doctor to the best customized treatment regimen.
