Dry eye is a condition in which there are insufficient tears to lubricate and nourish the eye. There are two forms of Dry Eye – Evaporative Dry Eye and Aqueous Dry Eye. 9 out of 10 individuals (86%) suffer from the evaporative form of Dry Eye.
With each blink of the eyelids, tears are spread across the front surface of the eye, known as the cornea. Tears provide lubrication, reduce the risk of eye infection, wash away foreign matter in the eye, and keep the surface of the eyes smooth and clear.
