Normally eyes are bathed in tears all day long. Tears are a complex, three layered fluid that consists of a watery layer, an outer oily layer to prevent tears from evaporating, and a slippery inner layer to ensure tears spread evenly over the eyes. If any of these layers aren’t working properly, the tears become unstable and dry spots develop on the surface of the eyes, making them stressed. When this happens, the immune system responds with inflammation, which causes the uncomfortable symptoms associated with dry eye disease.
