Be aware of your environment. Hot, aired environments can increase your symptoms of Dry Eyes.
Follow the 20,20,20 rule. During long tasks or when using digital screens take a 20 second break to look 20 feet away every 20 minutes.
Stop smoking or avoid smoke. Smoke can worsen your Dry Eye symptoms.
Clean your eyelids daily. Skin around the eyes accumulates bacteria and debris which can interfere with the meibomian glands and disrupt the tear film. An effective eyelid cleanser will clean the lids and lashes of this bacteria and debris, reducing your Dry Eye symptoms.
Your doctor can determine whether you have Evaporative Dry Eye or Aqueous Deficient Dry Eye and provide a specialized treatment plan for you.
