Dry Eye Relief
Common Dry Eye Symptoms
Every day many people struggle with the symptoms of dry eye, often without realizing that what they’re experiencing are symptoms. Of course, dry, itchy or irritated eyes are all possible symptoms. But dry eye can also cause sensitivity to light, a foreign body sensation, and even short periods of excess tears. Stringy discharge, difficulty keeping the eyes open, and blurry vision are other common indicators.
Causes of Dry Eye
Dry eye often occurs when the meibomian glands do not produce enough oils (lipids), or meibum, to create an effective tear film. The lipid layer sits on the surface of tear film and prevents tears from evaporating too quickly. Without an adequate lipid layer, the tears evaporate, prohibiting the eye from receiving the necessary hydration.
EyeGiene® Can Help
The EyeGiene® Insta-Warmth System™ applies calibrated warmth to your eyelid, opening the meibomian gland and thinning the oil. This facilitates flow and stabilizes the natural tear film, allowing the tear film to function normally.
