What is dry eye disease?


Dry eye disease (DED) is caused by inflammation of the eye and the tear-producing glands. This results in the eye not being able to produce tears that protect the eye from irritation and keep it moisturised and lubricated. 5

The tear film has the following layers: 5

  • Oily Layer – Outside layer that prevents evaporation of moisture from the eye.
  • Watery Layer - Middle layer that keeps the eye moisturised.
  • Mucous Layer - Inner layer responsible for coherence between the eye and the water layer.

Dry eye disease (DED) is a result of insufficient moisture in the water layer of the eye. 6
