The TFOS DEWS II report redefines dry eye as:

" A multifactorial disease of the ocular surface characterised by a loss of homeostasis of the tear film, and accompanied by ocular symptoms, in which tear film instability and hyperosmolarity, ocular surface inflammation and damage, and neurosensory abnormalities play etiological roles."

These days, many of us have jobs that require us to work with computer screens for hours at a time. This can put a real strain on your eyes. Eye problems caused by computer-use fall under Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS). CVS isn’t one specific problem, Instead, it includes a whole range of problems due to eye strain and discomfort.

There's no proof, however, that computer-use causes any long-term damage to the eyes.

You may notice:

  • Blurred vision
  • Double vision
  • Dry, red eyes
  • Eye irritation
  • Headaches
  • Neck or back pain

A Tear film analysis is required to check tear hyperosmolarity and ocular surface inflammation. We can accurately and reliably measure tear osmolarity and matrix metalloproteinase 9 (MMP9), a marker of inflammation and tissue breakdown in your tears

Lacrimal glands produce the aqueous layer of the tear film and tests like the “tear film break up time (T-BUT)” and Schirmer’s tests evaluate the deficiency of this layer which is an important cause of aqueous-deficiency dry eye

Meibography allows visualisation of morphology of the glands and plays an important role in assessing tear film dimensions and tear film instability. Lipid layer disturbances are more pronounced when meibography is abnormal leading to evaporative dry eye
