What is dry eye?

“ Dry eye is a multi-factorial disease of the ocular surface characterized by instability of the tear film. Accompanied by ocular symptoms, in which tear film instability and poor-quality tears, ocular surface inflammation, damage, and neurosensory abnormalities play contributing roles.”

Dry eye occurs when the quantity and/or quality of tears fails to keep the surface of the eye adequately lubricated.
