What is Dry Eye?
Dry eye disease is largely a product of inflammation of the meibomian glands within the eyelids. Therefore, one’s tear composition is adversely affected and because the tears lack the proper balance of oil, the tears
typically evaporate too quickly. It does not have to present with symptoms, and in fact 40% of dry eye disease patients are asymptomatic. Click here for some more info on Dry Eye. If you have any of the above symptoms, and want a professional diagnosis, please make an appointment here.
