Treatment For Dry Eye


What is Dry Eye?

In order for our eyes to stay healthy and comfortable, they must produce the right type of tears, or tear film. If your eyes do not produce enough of the right tears or tear film, then it is likely that you suffer from “dry eye”.

In the United States dry eye is a common condition, most often affecting people who are middle-aged or older. It is estimated that 4.88 million Americans from 50 and older have dry eyes.

There are a multitude of causes for dry eye, which is characterized by the symptoms of burning, redness and irritation.
