Why Your Eyes Are Dry





Are you one of the 40% of Americans who suffer from occasional dry eye?

At one point or another, you’ve probably experienced a symptom of dry eyes, a common condition in which the tear ducts don’t produce sufficient tears to lubricate and nourish the eyes.

Normal and healthy eyes constantly bathe themselves in tears, which  help protect against eye infections, wash away foreign matter in the eye, and keep the eye surface smooth and clear.

Your eyes can become dry for a number of reasons, most notably meibomian gland dysfunction, where oil gets stuck in your tear ducts and prevents them leaving from making sufficient tears. If you wear contact lenses, you’ll need additional lubrication to adapt to the foreign body in your eye. When you can’t produce enough tears on your own to meet this need, you can experience symptoms of dry eye. Seasonal changes in the air and humidity, as well as diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis and LASIK surgery,  also can reduce tear production

While you can easily pick up artificial tears or soothing drops at the drugstore, for relief of dry eyes, these products may not be effective for long-term eye health. Drops are only a temporary solution to alleviate dry eye symptoms, but they do not support long-term eye health or protection against future dry eye.

Instead, strengthen your eye health, from within, with EyePromise EZ Tears, softgels taken orally. These doctor-recommended vitamins  provide consistent comfort against dry eyes by delivering a powerful blend of vitamins A, D3, and E, as well as fish oil, Omega 3, and other natural ingredients.
