Dry eye is a multifactorial, symptomatic, and chronic disease of the ocular surface.
It is produced by a lack of tears or by excessive evaporation generally caused by a dysfunction of the Meibomian glands.
From slight discomfort to corneal injuries.
Despite not being a serious disease, it causes discomfort and visual disturbances to people who suffer from it. They can even cause tear film instability, corneal and conjunctival injuries.
Many of the people who suffer from it do not even know it or are not diagnosed
Despite this, we know that it affects 30% of the population and forecasts indicate that it will increase 1% each year.
Who usually gets dry eye syndrome?
The prevalence increases with age, but affects more women than men. Hormonal changes, the misuse of contact lenses, autoimmune diseases, refractive surgery, and some environmental conditions (such as exposure to air conditioning or prolonged work in front of screens) are some of the factors associated with dry eyes.
The key: the diagnosis
The diagnosis of dry eye is very complex since there is no single test for its detection.
At The Perfect Sense, we have extensive experience and training in this pathology, as well as the latest diagnostic technology.
Contact lenses, a risk factor
Up to 50% of contact lens wearers suffer from dry eyes and this, in turn, is one of the main reasons for abandonment.
Successful contact lens fitting begins with a healthy ocular surface. For this, it is advisable to carry out a prior examination to assess its condition, apply a treatment and thus adapt the contact lens with the most appropriate material and design for each case.
