Dry eye disease treatment with thermal systems.
The condition of having dry eyes is known as dry eye syndrome (DES), also known as karate conjunctivitis sick (KCS). Irritation, redness, discharge, and easily fatigued eyes are some of the other symptoms. Blurred vision is also a possibility. Symptoms might range from moderate and infrequent to severe and persistent. If left untreated, corneal scarring can result. When the eye does not produce enough tears or when the tears evaporate too quickly, dry eye develops. Contact lens wear, meibomian gland dysfunction, pregnancy, Jorgen syndrome, vitamin A deficiency, omega-3 fatty acid deficiency, LASIK surgery, and some drugs like antihistamines, some blood pressure medications, hormone replacement therapy, and antidepressants can all contribute to this. Chronic conjunctivitis, which can be caused by cigarette smoke exposure or infection, is also a possibility. The symptoms are used to make the diagnosis, but other tests may be utilized as well.Author(s): Altinkaynak Bison*
