What is Your Tear Film?

Before we can start discussing what may be causing your dry eye symptoms, we first need to understand what your tear film is and how it comforts your eyes. 

Your tear film is a layer of tears that covers your eye surface. The tear film is responsible for keeping your eyes feeling hydrated and comfortable, while also protecting them from foreign particles.

There are 3 distinct layers to your tear film, each with its own role and ingredient.

The Mucus Layer

The mucus layer is the innermost layer of your tear film. It’s responsible for keeping the rest of the tear film fastened to your eye.

The watery layer is produced by your lacrimal glands, making up the middle section of your tear film. It’s responsible for keeping your eye hydrated and free from particles and bacteria.

The oil layer is produced by your meibomian glands, creating a layer that helps seal in the rest of your tear film. The oil layer prevents the other tear film layers from evaporating.

Dry Eye Causes

Several factors may cause a tear film imbalance, including:

Dry Eye Symptoms

If you’re developing dry eyes, you may experience:

  • Mucus in or around your eyes
  • Light sensitivity  
  • Red eyes 
  • Contact lenses difficulties
  • Blurry vision
  • Eye fatigue
  • A burning sensation in the eyes

Treatment Techniques

Managing and treating dry eyes depends entirely on what may be causing your symptoms. In some cases, we may recommend prescription eye drops, meibomian gland cleansing, or eyelid hygiene techniques.

During your dry eye appointment, we may take detailed measurements of your tear film quality, tear osmolarity, and eye health to determine the cause of your symptoms. Find the comfort you deserve today and book your appointment at Camarillo Vision Center.
