What Are Dry Eyes?

Dry eye syndrome is a chronic condition that affects your ability to produce tears that keep your eyes comfortable. Insufficient or poor-quality tears can cause dry eyes, and different conditions could contribute to this problem.

Your tear film is responsible for keeping your eyes feeling comfortable. 3 different layers (mucin, water, and oil) make up your tear film, and each has a role to play to help keep your eyes comfortable:

  • Mucin, the innermost layer, helps keep the rest of your tear film attached to the surface of your eyes.
  • Water, the middle layer, keeps your eyes hydrated and helps wash away foreign particles that could cause discomfort.
  • Oil, the outermost layer, helps seal in the rest of the tear film to prevent it from evaporating and helps spread the tear film evenly across the eye surface.

Dry Eye Symptoms & Causes

Dry eyes can be caused by:

With dry eyes, you may experience:

  • A burning, stinging, or gritty sensation on the surface of your eye
  • Redness and wateriness
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Blurry vision
  • Difficulty wearing contact lenses

Our Treatments

Bruder masks are heat compresses placed over the top of your eyelids that help melt away blockages that could be preventing your meibomian glands from producing the oils your eyes need to feel comfortable.

Some studies have shown that omega-3 supplements can help reduce inflammation and irritation caused by dry eye syndrome and possibly help improve the function of meibomian glands.

We can prescribe or recommend a variety of eye drops to help alleviate symptoms of dry eyes. If you’re purchasing over-the-counter eye drops, please consult with our eye care team before using them.

Alongside eye drops, we can also prescribe various medications that can help manage or alleviate symptoms of dry eyes.
