DRY EYE SYMPTOMS

An estimated 90% of Albertans suffer from dry eye symptoms. The complex system of our tear layer and eyelid structure must function perfectly in order to maintain healthy eyes.


An imbalance in any of the tear layers and your eyelid function can result in dry eye symptoms:

  • Burning, redness, itching
  • Scratchiness, grittiness, foreign body sensation
  • Blurry vision and light sensitivity
  • Excessive watering
  • Contact lens discomfort
  • CAUSES & RISK FACTORS OF DRY EYE DISEASE


    90% of dry eye is caused by meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD) affecting the oily layer of your tears. Although anyone can develop MGD, the risk increases with age typically over 40 years.


    • Medications e.g. anti allergy, anti depressants, anti anxiety, hormone replacement therapy, and oral contraceptives
    • Underlying Medical Conditions e.g. Rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, thyroid dysfunction, Lupus, Sjögren Syndrome
    • Digital Screens our blink rate decreases by more than 50% leading to increased tear evaporation
    • Diet & Hydration alcohol and caffeine are diuretics that can cause decreased tear production. Diet high in vitamin A, omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids can help improve tear quality.
    • Climate & Environment dry, dusty, and windy environments can exacerbate evaporation of tears and/or overproduction of eyelid mites (Demodex folliculorum ) and bacteria causing inflammation and worsening of symptoms
