There have been recent studies that show an added supplement in your daily routine can greatly improve, if not completely eliminate, dry eye symptoms. Your tears are made up of three layers. The bottom layer on the cornea is composed of mucin. Next is a water layer and last is an oil layer that keeps the tears from evaporating. The most common cause of dry eye occurs when the oil glands at the base of the eyelashes are not functioning properly. If these glands are not secreting oil into the eye, then the tears are too watery and evaporate too quickly to moisturize the eye. To improve oil gland function and to help relieve dry eye symptoms, several treatments may be prescribed. All of these are available for purchase at our office. We also offer auto-ship options so you don’t have to worry about ordering and pick up of your supplements:
