Do you have:

1. Watery eyes
2. Irritable eyes
3. Variable vision

These are just 3 of the symptoms of Dry Eye Disease: a chronic condition if the tears in your eyes evaporate too quickly, or if your eyes don't produce tears in the correct way. This causes the eyes to become red and inflamed.

Dry Eyes can occur for many other reasons

Age
As we get older, our glands produce less tears, of poorer quality, that are less well spread over the eye’s surface by our eyelids.

Contact lenses
Poorly fitting contact lenses, overuse or older designs of contact lenses can dry or irritate the eye and eyelids. This can usually be relieved by regular reviews with a specialist optometrist.

Environment
Tears evaporate more quickly in certain conditions leading to watering and dry eyes. For example:

• Air conditioning in offices or cars
• Hot & dry climate
• Altitude
• Smoke
• Sun
• Wind

It is also well established by research that using a computer or reading from a screen stimulates us to blink 10 times less increasing tear evaporation.

Hormonal changes

Hormones are important in the production of tears. Reasons for changes to hormone production could be:

• Starting or stopping the contraceptive pill
• Pregnancy
• Menopause


Medication

Medicines that impact dry eye are:

• Antihistamines
• Antidepressants
• Beta-blockers
• Diuretics

The most common eye conditions that cause dry eye are:

• Blepharitis and
• Meibomium Gland Dysfunction.

Both can be treated by specialist optometrists.

 

Other conditions are:

• Allergic conjunctivitis
• Bell’s palsy
• Contact dermatitis
• HIV
• Lupus
• Rheumatoid arthritis
• Sjogrenn’s syndrome
