What Is the Tear Film?
The tear film is essential for maintaining your eye’s comfort and health. It covers the surface of your eyes, keeping them hydrated and free of particles. The tear film is made of 3 distinct layers, each with its unique purpose:
- The innermost mucus layer helps keep the tear film adhered to the eye’s surface. Produced by the conjunctiva, it’s the first building block to the rest of your tear film.
- The middle aqueous layer is produced by your lacrimal glands and helps keep your eyes hydrated while protecting them from particles like dirt.
- The outermost oil layer is produced by your meibomian glands and helps seal in the rest of your tear film. This layer prevents the tear film from evaporating.
What Causes Dry Eyes?
Some of the most common risk factors can include:
Eye drops are a great way to find fast, effective relief. However, it’s important to speak to us before you purchase any over-the-counter eye drops as some might have ingredients that may not work for your eyes or case of dry eyes.
Lifestyle and environmental changes could also help reduce the risk of developing dry eyes. These could mean changing your medications or adjusting your home or office to better suit your eye comfort. These changes can include:
- Adding a humidifier to your room.
- Staying inside on smoky or windy days.
- Taking breaks from up-close tasks.
- Facing away from air conditioners and fans.
