What is Dry Eye?

In reality, dry eye is an old name for a very common problem. The new name is ocular surface disease. It is a very common disease. Anywhere between 10-60 million people are afflicted with it in the United States. In people suffering from dry eye, their natural tear is not properly and healthily bathing their eye.

The result of which can be symptoms of discomfort, stinging, burning, sandy gritty feeling, and fluctuating vision throughout the day (part of the day they see clearly other parts blurry).

The reason they changed the name from dry eye to ocular surface disease is because it’s not just a tearing issue per se, but patients have problems with the surface of the eye as well.

We added the word disease because we wanted the public to think more seriously about this condition. We wanted to move away from the term “dry eye” because patients would come in and have a tissue constantly in their hands to wipe their eyes due to excessive tearing and so when we say to them that they have dry eye, it doesn’t make sense to them.
