What is Dry Eye Disease
Dry Eye Disease refers to abnormalities of the tear-film which should coat the surfaces of the eyes, providing clear vision and protecting sensitive surface tissues.
The key features of dry eye syndrome are:
Decreased tear production
Increased tear evaporation
Incorrect composition of tears
These result in inadequate lubrication of the eyes—leading to physical discomfort, visual fluctuation, and the possibility of permanent eye surface damage.
