What Causes Dry Eye?

Dry eye has two possible causes: insufficient tear volume or poor tear quality.

Sometimes our bodies are unable to produce enough tears to keep our eyes lubricated and moist. Other times our body can produce enough tears, but the tears produced do not contain enough oil. This oil, called meibum, is an important part of your tear film. Without a balanced tear film, our tears evaporate too quickly, leaving the eyes poorly lubricated and dry.

Dry Eye Symptoms

Symptoms of dry eye may include:

  • Dryness
  • Redness
  • Blurry vision
  • Eye fatigue
  • Stingy discharge
  • Irritation (such as itching or burning)
  • Suddenly watery eyes
  • Foreign body sensation in the eyes
  • Excessive glare (particularly when driving at night)
  • Light sensitivity

Fortunately, there are a variety of treatments available for dry eyes. Talk to one of our Optometrists during your next appointment and we will work with you to determine a management plan to best treat your dry eyes.
