Vista Advanced Dry Eye Formula
That itchy, burning sensation in your eyes is literally and figuratively irritating! Anyone experiencing dry eye syndrome can tell you just how difficult it is to stay focused when your eyes feel like they are on fire.
Causes of Dry Eye
Dry eye is a common problem with many potential underlying causes. Some contributing factors are situational, such as having undergone recent eye surgery (e.g., Lasik, glaucoma, or cataracts surgery) or taking certain medications; others are environmental, including ambient temperature and humidity.
Sometimes dry eye is the result of our sleeping patterns. Getting a full night’s rest is important since eyes need time to recover after a long day. If, however, your eyes frequently dry out overnight, this might be because you do not fully close your eyes while snoozing—a condition known as nocturnal lagophthalmos. As many as 20% of people have this condition, but most are unaware of it since the quality and amount of sleep may not be affected. While your body might feel rested, your eyes tell a different story. Even a slight gap between the lids is enough for the air to desiccate your eyes leaving them feeling tired and scratchy the next morning.
Another likely source is the long hours we spend staring at electronic screens. Whether it is for work or leisure—the modern convenience of computers, smart phones, and tablets, unfortunately can result in eye strain. When we fixate on our phones and other screens, the rate of blinking slows to a snail’s pace—dropping from approximately 20 to about 4 blinks per minute! When we blink, we are helping to produce and spread tears over the ocular surface. This is what keeps our eyes feeling nice and moisturized.
Although the underlying contributing factors vary, ultimately dry eye syndrome is related to tear production—or rather, the lack thereof. Problems arise when either the number of tears produced is diminished or when the quality of tears is compromised. In some cases, people may struggle with both issues. This condition can get worse overtime if not treated.
Tears—more than meets the eye
Tears are more than just water—they are actually a highly complex mixture of an aqueous solution, phospholipids (oils), and mucus. With every blink, healing tears coat the ocular surface and maintain the health of the eyes by protecting them from infection and outside debris as well as removing cellular waste. The oily component serves a dual function—it helps to retain moisture and to distribute tears evenly across the eye.
Dryness is an annoyance that can ruin your day, but if left untreated, it can potentially damage your eyes. Indeed, dry eye syndrome is a vicious cycle that often intensifies. When too few tears are produced—or when the tears lack an oily layer and evaporate quickly—the eye enters a state of hyperosmolarity. When this occurs, the ocular surface is exposed, and a cascade of inflammatory events (e.g., the release of pro-inflammatory factors and cytokines) is kickstarted. Without adequate lubrication, the likelihood of mechanical damage to the ocular surface increases significantly. This is analogous to running your windshield wipers without fluid. The friction can cause scratches on the eye especially when debris is present. This uncomfortable, gritty sensation results in even more blinking, which perpetuates the nasty problem, and consequently, causes cell death.
Diet and Eye Health
It is often said that you are what you eat. When your diet is unbalanced, the chemistry of your tears will be too, which may result in dryness and irritation. It is recommended to eat foods high in healthy fats (e.g., fish, shellfish, nuts, etc.) and plenty of vegetables. If you are not getting adequate daily nutrients from your diet, then a supplement packed with fatty acids and antioxidants can help fill the gaps.
