The dryness of eyes is caused by an imbalance in the tear-flow system of the eye. Eyes contain special glands that produce tears. Tears are a combination of special proteins, antibodies, mucus, oil and water. Antibodies in tears help protect eyes against infections, oil helps in lubrication and water gives a moist sensation to your eyes.
The symptoms of dry eyes include itching, redness, pain, light sensitivity, blurred vision and gritty sensation. There are numerous factors that may lead to dry eyes. They include aging, menopause, diseases that affect the ability to make tears, eye diseases, structural problems with eyelids, side effects of certain medications, collagen vascular diseases and environmental conditions such as heat.
Dry eyes can be treated with artificial tear drops, permanent punctal occlusion and surgery. There are numerous prescription eye-drops available on the market, which help your eyes increase their own tear production. Other medications such as tropical steroids and ointments can also be used to keep dry eyes lubricated. You can also use a supplement that helps maintain the health of your eyes.
