Reasons For Dry Eyes

Dry Eyes

Before we explore what the probable reasons for dry eyes are, it is paramount to know what is responsible for the lubrication of your eyes. Tears have water, mucus, proteins, and some antibodies which prevent the eyes and keep them in good health. But over time, when tear decreases, it results in dry eyes.

Signs Of Dry Eyes:

Here Are Some Common Symptoms Observed In Case Of Dry Eyes:

  • Irritation in eyes
  • Blurred vision
  • Light sensitivity
  • Redness of eyes
  • Gritty feeling and itchiness in the eyes

If these symptoms persist for long, it is best to meet an eye specialist. They will have a closer look at your eyes and will let you know about the right solution. Usually, they would recommend eye drops, but sometimes, an eye specialist may advise you to wear powered glasses or contact lenses.

What Causes Dryness In The Eyes?

Let's Understand What The Probable Causes Of Dryness In The Eyes Are:

There can be several reasons for dry eyes, and one of the common causes is a disruption in the healthy tear film of the eyes. The tear film comprises three layers:

  • Fatty oils
  • Aqueous fluid
  • Mucus

It results in the smoothness of the eyes and keeps it well-lubricated. If the problem arises in any of these layers, it will cause dryness of eyes. The damage to this film could result from any hormonal changes, inflamed eyelids, or some allergic response. Aging is also a cause of dryness of eyes. So, the moment you notice any such condition, you must visit an eye specialist.

When Should You Visit The Eye Specialist And Precautionary Measures:

Dry Eyes

If you are having blurred vision, or redness in eyes or you have a gritty feeling, then it’s time to visit the eye specialist. While aging is something that you cannot control, but for controlling the problem, then you can adopt the following preventive measures:

  • Avoid air blowing in the eyes. Don't keep your eyes in the direct focus of hair dryer, or ACs, or even fans.
  • Use humidifiers during winter to keep moisture in the air.
  • If you have to work on screen, make sure you don't stare at it continuously, rather give your eyes a necessary break.
  • Keep your computer screen below eye level. If your computer screen is above eye level, then you will have to widen your eyes to view the screen. Positioning it below the eye level won't put pressure on your eyes.
  • Visit your eye doctor. Make sure you visit your eye doctor. It becomes important if you have to work for long hours on screen.

Concluding Thoughts

These are some key information pertaining to dry eyes, and if you are having any such issues, it is always good to seek eye specialist’s advice.
