What is Dry Eye Syndrome?

Dry eyes, also known as dry eye syndrome, is a term that describes and encompasses a variety of different symptoms. Dry eye syndrome can affect how well your eyes produce tears or even the quality of the components used to make up your tears.

Three different layers make up the tear film: a mucin layer, an aqueous layer, and a lipid layer. The cause of your dry eyes depends on which layer or layers are affected. When there is an imbalance in any or all of these layers, you can expect to experience:

  • Overly watery, teary eyes
  • Stringy mucus in your eyes
  • Redness, itchiness, and irritation
  • Difficulty wearing contacts
  • Eye fatigue
  • Light sensitivity
  • Blurred vision

Dry Eye Risk Factors

No two dry eye cases are ever the same, and your optometrist will work with you to find the cause and right strategy to help manage your symptoms. However, there is an abundance of different risk factors that could play a part in the development of dry eyes. They could include:

How Can We Help?

Meibography is an imaging study used to detect symptoms of MGD. Though it can’t help directly treat the problem, it can give your optometrist insight into the structure of your meibomian glands, and how well they are working. With this information, your optometrist can help create a suitable management plan.

Osmolarity is a diagnostic test of your tears to help determine the cause of the imbalance in your tears and the severity of your dry eye syndrome. The information found can help your optometrist come up with a management plan to restore your tears’ balance.

Meibomian gland expression is a therapeutic technique used by your optometrist to help clear blockages in your meibomian glands, usually caused by MGD. The treatment applies therapeutic heat and pressure on the meibomian glands.
