London, United Kingdom, September 29, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Mr. Samer Hamada, a renowned eye specialist in London is offering treatment for dry eye syndrome caused by Meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD) using the revolutionary E-Eye device. Currently, there are no preventative treatments for dry eye. Until the introduction of E-Eye, patients can only achieve short-term relief through artificial eye drops. Now, with this device, dry eye sufferers can benefit from long-lasting relief.
Dry eye syndrome is a common disease that affects up to 30 per cent of certain adult groups. According to research, senior are most at risk of contracting the disease. Meanwhile, females have a greater prevalence for it than males.
Causes of dry eye disease can vary. For instance, different conditions of modern life like exposure to pollution and artificial lights, intensive use of screens, driving cars, dry weather conditions, air conditioned rooms, use of contact lenses, hormonal changes, medications and laser eye surgeries can be possible causes. A report on MGD from the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO), however, have identified that Meibomian gland dysfunction is the principal cause of dry eye syndrome throughout the world.
There are about 80 Meibomian glands in the upper and lower eyelids of each eye. These glands are responsible for producing the important oil called the lipid layer. This layer allows the natural lubrication needed for the eye. Also known as Blepharitis, MGD makes the oil layer of tears more unstable and thinner than it should be, which causes the excessive evaporation. In simpler words, there isn’t enough tears being produced to keep the eye’s normal function.
Common symptoms of dry eye syndrome typically include dryness, foreign body sensation, secretion, burning, redness, fatigue, blurred vision, blinking, and itchiness. Left untreated, dry eye disease can cause further complications such as paradoxal tear increase, inability to wear contact lenses, atrophy of the meibonan glands orifices, episodical infections, apparition of micro-ulcerations of the epithelium cornea, and more.
