Dry Eye Theraphy

Dry eye disease is usually classified as either an Aqueous or Lipid Layer Deficiency. It is important to understand what type of dry eye disease you have so that a management plan can be tailored to your needs. A comprehensive or well-rounded management plan includes: lubricating tears, eyelid hygiene and omega-3 supplementation.

Aqueous Deficiency: Tears are not of sufficient quality or quantity to keep the surface of the eye healthy often due to a problem with the lacrimal glands, which produce the watery or aqueous tear layer.

Lipid Layer Deficiency: Tears disappear or evaporate too fast, often due to Meibomian Gland Dysfunction, which reduces the quantity and/or quality of the lipid or oily tear layer produced by the Meibomian Glands.

Dry Eye Disease is most often caused by:

  • Ageing
  • Hormonal changes
  • Certain Medications
  • Medical Conditions
  • Eye Care Products/Procedures
  • Environmental factors
  • Low blink rate
  • Low dietary intake of omega-3 fatty acids

Common symptoms of Dry Eye Disease may include some or all of the following:

  • Soreness
  • Blurry vision
  • Burning
  • Dryness
  • Irritation
  • A gritty or sandy sensation
  • Itching
  • Pain
