What is Dry Eye Disease?

Also known as ‘Dry Eye Syndrome,’ Dry Eye Disease is the condition of having chronically dry eyes. Though most people will experience dry eyes on occasion, the frequency and severity of dry eye symptoms is much greater in those diagnosed with dry eye disease. Occasional dry eyes tend to be caused by external factors like exposure to dry or windy environments, prolonged screen time, or even simple tiredness. On the other hand, dry eye disease is a chronic and more serious condition. It occurs when there is an imbalance in the quantity or quality of tears, leading to persistent discomfort and potentially even damage to the eye. It can be caused by various factors, including aging, hormonal changes, underlying health conditions, medications, or other environmental factors. Dry eye disease necessitates ongoing management, a professional assessment, and tailored care to address the underlying causes and provide long-term relief for the patient. It’s essential for individuals experiencing chronic eye discomfort to consult an eye care professional for a proper diagnosis and treatment plan.

Dry Eye Symptoms and Treatment

Dry eye disease is a common eye problem in Canada, affecting up to 30% of the population, and it’s important to understand its symptoms and how it can be treated. People with dry eye disease often experience symptoms like dryness, irritation, burning, or a gritty feeling in their eyes. When you have dry eyes, it can make your eyes sensitive to light, and they might get tired quickly while contact lens wearers can find it uncomfortable to wear their lenses. The good news is there are various ways to manage dry eye disease. These treatments can range from simple lifestyle changes to using specialized eye drops or more lengthy procedures. Common treatment options include using artificial tears and warm compresses in the eye area. More extensive treatments can include intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy and Radio frequency thermal treatments.
