What is dry eye?

Dry eye affects over 25 million Americans1 and is caused by changes in the quantity or quality of your tears. Your tear film consists of three main layers that work together to keep your eyes both comfortable and protected. If anything affects the balance of these elements, your tears can evaporate, leaving your eyes feeling dry and irritated.

One of the most common symptoms is a feeling of dryness, but dry eye can also make your eyes experience irritation, grittiness, scratchiness, burning, or stinging. Not everyone will experience the same symptoms, but most people with dry eye will agree that persistent symptoms can make everyday activities difficult, and can interrupt hobbies and activities you enjoy.

There are several different factors that could cause dry eye, including changes in the environment (like higher temperatures and a lack of humidity) or changes in our own bodies. Hormones are crucial to healthy tear production and changes in hormone levels may decrease natural tear production. Although dry eye can affect both men and women of any age, menopause is especially known to affect tear production. Studies have shown that over
16 million Post-Menopausal Women suffer from symptoms of dry eye1.

Unfortunately, there is no cure for dry eye, but there is a variety of treatments that can help soothe its symptoms. The SYSTANE® Family of Products includes options that work with your natural tears to soothe, rehydrate, and protect your eyes, delivering you relief that lasts. And lasts.
