There are two root causes of dry eyes: inadequate tear volume and poor tear quality. Our eyes require a healthy, balanced tear film to stay lubricated.
If we cannot produce enough tears, or the tears we do produce do not contain enough oil, water, or mucin, our eyes become dry and irritated.
Our tears are produced by several different glands, which are located in and around our eyelids. As we age, our eyes may not produce as many tears, which leads to dry eyes. Certain medical conditions and medications can also affect our ability to produce enough tears to keep our eyes lubricated.
Even if our eyelids can produce enough tears to meet our needs, environmental factors, such as a dry climate or wind, can cause our tears to evaporate too quickly.
Our tears are composed of three substances: an oil called meibum, water, and mucin.
