ocular dryness

Dry eye disease (DED) is a highly prevalent inflammatory disorder that affects millions of people worldwide, being one of the main reasons for visiting an Eye Care Professional.

DED can be classified into 4 levels, based on severity:

1. Mild

2. Moderate

3. Severe

4. Very severe

As for the causes of DED, several factors have been found:

  • - Environmental conditions: air-conditioning, smoky or extremely low-humidity environments.
  • - Digital devices use: often computer users complain of eye strain, a burning or gritty sensation in the eyes.
  • - Contact lens wear may cause certain patients to complain of their eyes feeling dry.
  • - Corneal refreactive surgery & keratoplast may cause or aggravate DED.
  • - Sex hormones: androgen levels decreases with age in both men and women.
  • - MGD (Meibomium Gland Disfunction).
