Dry eye is a condition where the front surface of the eye is not getting adequate lubrication or nutrition. For some people, there are not Enough tears being made; and for others, the Type of the tears created are of poor quality. The tear film lubricates, washes away foreign particles, provides nutrition and provides a smooth clear surface for vision. So the big question is, is it the Quantity or Quality of tears that is creating your Dry Eye?
Let's start by describing the different layers of the Tear Film.
The Mucin/Mucous layer allows the tears to adhere/stick to the front surface of the eye. The Aqueous/Water layer is the lubricating water component of the tear film that provides nourishment and protects the cornea. The Lipid/Oil Layer lubricates as well as preventing the tears from evaporating.
Depending on why your eyes are dry, the treatment methods are different.
