read moreDry eye is a condition where your eye is not producing enough lubricating tears. This can be a little confusing since one of the most common symptoms of dry eye syndrome is excessive watering of the eyes! How is this possible? Contain a precise balance of water mucus, oil, nutrient proteins, and antibodies to nourish and protect the front surface of the eye. Lubricating tears are produced slowly and steadily throughout the day. Do not have much lubricating value. Reflex tears are exactly what the name suggests, they are an automatic reflex to flush the eye when it is suddenly irritated or injured.

The natural lens inside the eye is normally transparent and a cataract is the clouding of this natural lens. Glasses or contact lenses cannot sharpen your vision if a cataract is present. Cataracts are a normal part of the aging process. Most people will develop cataracts if they live long enough.

The optic nerve is made up of many nerve fibers (like an electric cable containing numerous wires). Glaucoma damages nerve fibers, which can cause blind spots in our vision. Typically, these blind spots initially involve the peripheral, or side, vision. This loss can occur slowly enough that symptoms are not noticed until the disease is far advanced. The development of glaucoma is frequently associated with an elevated pressure inside the eye, or intraocular pressure (IOP).
