Q&A with Dr. Shurminsky

Dr. Shurminsky Answers Your Eye Care Questions

What is Dry Eye?

Dry eye disease is largely a product of inflammation of the meibomian
glands within the eyelids. Therefore, one’s tear composition is adversely
affected and because the tears lack the proper balance of oil, the tears
typically evaporate too quickly. It does not have to present with symptoms,
and in fact 40% of dry eye disease patients are asymptomatic. Learn More
