Dry eye Syndrome

Dry eyes are a common source of discomfort, and usually dry eyes are a chronic problem. Our eyes are always protected by a thin film of tears. This film of liquid keeps our vision clear and protects our eyes from irritations.

Causes for dry eye:

  • Poor eye lid function
  • Decrease tear production
  • Lifestyle

Prevention of dry eye:

  • Wear goggles to prevent excess irritation.
  • Don’t forget to blink when you work in front of computer or while reading or while watching TV.
  • Avoid rubbing your eyes.
  • Avoid direct blowing of air into eyes through hair driers, fans or air conditioners.
  • Avoid a dry climate
