What is Dry Eye?

As the name of the eye disorder suggests, it's when your eyes are dry. Most people have Dry Eyes at some point in their lives but don't realise that it is actually a clinical problem. Dry Eye affects the surface of your eye and your tear glands, where your eyes either do not produce enough of tears of if your tears evaporate too quickly.2,3 It can be caused by numerous factors ranging from environmental triggers (i.e. extensive computer work, wearing contact lenses, reading, travelling, being in an air-conditioned area, wind/smoke, being in low humidity, etc.)3-6, medication that you may be taking (i.e. antihistamines, acne treatment, antidepressants and blood pressure medication)2,3 or other conditions such as old age, diabetes, menopause2,3 and the list goes on.

As if finding out that so many things in your life may be causing your symptoms of Dry Eyes is not enough; did you know? Almost 1 out of 2 adults (48%) experience Dry Eye Syndrome!5

Check out your symptoms and our Dry Eye range that treats all types of Dry Eyes.
