To keep your eyes healthy, you need to have healthy tears to provide moisture, lubrication, and protection. This is not only for your comfort, but also it helps with clarity of your vision. The tear film is made up of different layers and when there is a deficiency of one or more of the layers, dry eye disease can develop. The underlying cause of dry eye disease is most often inflammation. Treating the inflammation treats the dryness.
