Dry eye disease is a common condition that occurs when tears are not able to provide adequate lubrication to the eye. Dry eyes may occur if you don’t produce enough tears or produce poor-quality tears. This tear instability leads to inflammation and damage to the eye surface. In this blog we are going to learn about dry eyes in depth and the best dry eye treatment in Bangalore. 

Dry eye can lead to discomfort, irritation, and impact vision. Dry eyes occur when the tear glands fail to produce enough tears or when tears evaporate too quickly. Tears play a crucial role in maintaining eye health by lubricating the surface of the eyes, washing away debris, and providing nutrients and oxygen. When tear production is insufficient or tears evaporate too rapidly, the eyes become dry, leading to various symptoms.

Dry eyes can manifest through several symptoms, including:

Causes and Risk Factors

Several factors can contribute to the development of dry eyes, such as:

a) Aging: Tear production tends to decrease as we age.

b) Environmental factors: Dry or windy climates, air conditioning, and indoor heating can exacerbate dry eye symptoms.

c) Prolonged digital device usage: Staring at screens for extended periods can reduce blink frequency and cause dryness.

d) Hormonal changes: Women experiencing hormonal fluctuations, particularly during pregnancy or menopause, may be more susceptible to dry eyes.

e) Medical conditions: Conditions like autoimmune disorders, diabetes, and certain medications can affect tear production.

f) Eyelid problems: Poor eyelid function or conditions like blepharitis can disrupt tear distribution.

Tear Film: Tear film has 3 layers

  1. The outermost fatty or oily layer
  2. Middle aqueous layer/ Water layer
  3. Innermost mucin layer

This concentration keeps the surface of the eye moist. Disruption in any of these layers can cause dry eyes.
