Millions of patients go to their eye doctor yearly with the complaint of chronic dry eyes. Many of these complaints include eyes that are:
Symptoms of Chronic Dry Eyes
- Tearing excessively – watery eyes
- Blurry vision
- Generally uncomfortable
What Causes Dry Eyes
Typically, dry eyes get worse as a person ages. Dry eyes can become a chronic condition that requires chronic continuous treatment. There are several reasons that are associated with dry eyes:
- Under production of tears
- Over evaporation of tears – evaporative dry eyes.
- Blepharitis- inflammation of the eye lids caused by dry eyes.
- Meibomian Gland Dysfunction – clogging of the Meibomian oil glands located on eye lids due to inflammation from dry eyes.
Blepharitis and the TheraLife Cure
Blepharitis is an inflammation on the edge of the eyelids. Often patients with blepharitis have an increased oil thickness in the margins of the eye where the oil glands are located. When the oils don’t flow, and become thickened, they will not mix with the tears that cover the eye. If the oil coat does not completely cover this delicate tear film, then the tears evaporate too quickly.
One helpful cure is the use of hot compresses. A gel type of hot compress is recommended. A hot wash cloth is not good enough. Followed by a gentle scrubbing of the eyelids with an eye lid cleanser. We recommend a hypochlorous based eye lid cleanser that prevents the bacteria or mites re-attaching to the eye lids to stop the infectious cycle.
TheraLife offers a hot compress for eyes to help provide relief from chronic dry eyes twice a day. It heats up in the microwave oven for 20-30 seconds. Used at night, it also doubles as a sleep mask to keep the eyes closed during sleep. Made of Elastogel, the hot compress retains heat and is easy to clean. Just pop it in the microwave for warm relief, or place it in the freezer for a cold compress. The warmth of the compress helps the thickened oil to thin out and for glands that are clogged to flow freely.
TheraLife also offers a gentle, refreshing, soothing eyelid cleanser. OcuSoft HypoChlor for Eyelids provides powerful control for serious conditions, such as Blepharitis. Daily use helps keep the lids and lashes clean and free from debris and microorganisms that may lead to clogged oil glands.
TheraLife’s gentle eyelid cleanser is all natural and contains no buffers, preservatives, or surfactants. Naturally produced and released by the neutrophil cells of the body, hypochlorous acid (HOCl} is part of the body’s natural defense mechanism against pathogens. Proper lid hygiene should be performed daily to keep the oils in the lids flowing nicely.
Fish Oil Supplements
Many eye doctors feel that omega-3 fish oil supplements help promote a better oil coat over the tear film of the eye. TheraLife Fish Oil is 100% contaminant free. Purified through “molecularly distillation,” the lighter fractions of the fish oil are collected, leaving behind the heavier fragments of Mercury, PCB, and other contaminants. Only TheraLife provides the highest levels of quality, purity, and potency.
Fish oil is helpful in treating dry eyes due to it’s strong anti-oxidation properties and the unsaturated fatty acids found in the fish oil. These fatty acids are thought to assist in the prevention of macular degeneration, cataract, and dry eye. Acids that are naturally found in the retina of the eye are also found in omega-3 fatty acids. The fatty acids found in TheraLife Omega-3 Fish Oils help the natural tears in the eyes to thicken, preventing excessive tear evaporation.
Conditions that Make Dry Eyes Worse
There are certain conditions that can make dry eyes worse:
- Extended computer use
- Ceiling fans or desk fans
- High altitudes
- Windy climates
- Poor tear production
- Post-menopausal women
- Adults over 50
- Cancer patients on certain medications- specially chemotherapy
- Patients who have had radiation treatments near the eyes
- Medical conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, Lupus, Crohn’s disease, and Sjogren’s disease
Often, over the counter eye drops are not effective in these patients, and in some cases, make dry eyes worse.
