Not Enough Tears?


Not Enough Tears?

Tears are necessary for your overall eye health.

Dry Eye occurs when the eyes do not produce sufficient tears or the tears evaporate too quickly. Without proper treatment, inadequate tear production can make daily activities frustrating, affecting your personal and professional life, from reading or watching TV, to driving or working on the computer.

The most common form of Dry Eye is the Evaporative form, which affects 9 out of 10 dry eye cases (86%)2. This form results from a shortage of oil on the surface of your tears caused by a blockage in your eyelid (Meibomian) glands, leading tears to evaporate faster than normal. This lack of oil production is often referred to as Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD).
