WHAT IS DRY EYE?
Dry Eye, also known as Dry Eye Disease, is a common condition caused by a lack of sufficient tears to lubricate and nourish the eye. Dryness occurs when your eyes either do not produce enough tears or produce tears of poor quality. Tears provide lubrication, wash away foreign matter in the eye, and keep the surface of the eyes smooth and clear. They are necessary for maintaining eye health and providing clear vision.
In Calgary and area, dry eyes are a common and often chronic problem, particularly in older adults. Consequences of dry eyes range from subtle eye irritation to significant inflammation and even scarring of the front surface of the eye. This condition can interfere with your work and quality of life.
