The Dry Eye Zone is an information center and community of people suffering from "dry eye", the convenient but misleading catch-all term under which a myriad of different eye and eyelid diseases, syndromes and symptom collections are lumped!

People with dry eye symptoms may experience a wide range of symptoms ranging from a searing, burning sensation to extreme light sensitivity to constant blurred vision. They may have symptoms connected specifically to disease or damage to one or more parts of their tear system - the lacrimal (tear producing) glands; the meibomian (oil-producing) glands; the blink (tear pumping and spreading) mechanism; their eyelid aperture; their canalicular (tear drainage) system; or a combination of these things; or for totally unknown causes. They may be able to trace the condition(s) to specific causes such as side effects from surgeries (LASIK, PRK, blepharoplasty, cataract surgery, corneal transplants, etc); cancer treatments; GvHD; Stevens Johnson Syndrome; systemic drugs; ocular drugs; auto-immune diseases like Sjogrens Syndrome or rheumatoid arthritis; hormonal changes; eyelid diseases or injuries; corneal diseases; nocturnal lagophthalmos; Bell's palsy; long term contact lens use; meibomian gland dysfunction; or any of a long list of other causes.

What unites us as a community are symptoms of eye discomfort which are severe enough to have a profound impact on daily functioning in such basic things as sleeping, reading, driving and working. Sound, comprehensive medical advice is surprisingly hard to come by for people with "dry eye" and practical advice for living with it even more so - hence the importance of a community where we can share information and hope.

NEW SITE COMING IN MARCH 2018! We have been in need of a thoroughly updated and overhauled site for a long time. So excited it's finally getting close! If you want to be alerted when it's here, please sign up for our newsletter!
