Part 2 of our series on Dry Eye!
So we all know what evaporation is but how’s it related to dry eye? Evaporative dry eye (EDE), the most common type of dry eye, includes lid-related causes such as meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD) and blepharitis as well as friction-related causes such as in contact lens wear or from the eye structure.
The image here shows an image of the cornea and tear film… except it’s green? There are some special tear film dyes used in testing for dry eye – This one is yellow and it turns green with a special blue light setting.
