Tears Again FAQs

What is dry eye? 


Dry eye occurs when the eye lacks sufficient lubrication, causing discomfort with each blink. Symptoms can include a scratchy, irritated feeling of the eyelid running over the front of the eye. The lack of lubrication on the eye surface is due to an imbalance of the outer layer of the tear film, which contains essential fatty compounds. This is called the lipid layer, which is responsible for controlling tear evaporation from the eye’s surface.

What causes dry eye? 


Dry eye can afflict anyone of any age, but it is more common as we get older. Other known triggers of dry eye include:

Climatic conditions (eg.low humidity, air-conditioning)
Medications (eg. oral contraceptives, beta blockers)
Contact Lenses
Rheumatism and arthritis
Menopause
Lifestyle (eg. prolonged computer use, flying, eye surgery)

How does Tears Again work?


Tears Again addresses the underlying causes of dry eye, a deficiency in the lipid layer. By delivering phospholipids, essential fatty acids, oil acids and vitamin E via liposomal application, tearsagain® assists in stabilising the eye’s lipid layer and thus reducing tear evaporation.
