The natural tears your eye creates do a more than just simply lubricate your eye for comfort’s sake, this layer of fluid works to create a liquid shield that can protect your eye from the many dangerous elements you experience in the world around you. As odd as it is to think about, just as your skin is in fact an organ of the body, your eyes too are essentially an exposed organ. Your eyes are extremely susceptible to damage, which is why our Paradise optometrist always recommends you wear sunglasses to protect them from UV rays, as well as protective eye wear to keep them from injury at work or at play. When eyes are properly lubricated, this allows for essential anti-bodies to be spread evenly across the surface of the eye, protecting them from the possibility of infection. Dry eyes can be often susceptible to a wide array of optical disease, such as pink eye, due to the lack of anti-bodies present on your eyes. If you find yourself experiencing pain, blurred vision, increased light sensitivity, itching and gritty sensations, or eye redness, you should visit your Paradise eye care experts at Joseph Eng, OD to discuss your treatment options.
