Dry eyes can be very common, usually caused by a lack of sufficient moisture on the surface of the eye. More than 20% of the world’s population suffers with it. It can become more common as patients get older, and seems to affect women more than men. Most patients will experience dry eyes due to increased tear evaporation or a reduction in tear production.
Increased tear evaporation can occur due to a wide variety of causes, including environments with low humidity, Meibomian gland dysfunction and poor blink quality.
Many of the conventional dry eye treatment methods can help to alleviate symptoms but often only for a short amount of time. At Essilor, we have a variety of dry eye instruments that allow you to go the extra mile when helping patients achieve more comfortable vision.
