Blepharitis and Dry Eye
There is a clear link between eye lid problems and dry eye problems. The Meibomian Glands that lie between the eyelashes produce the oily component of our tears. If the glands are blocked and irritated the oily tear component is affected and the eye’s tears become less stable making the eyes feel dry.
Unapproved treatments - Restasis
Restasis cyclosporine is available in the USA but has not been approved by the health authorities for human use in Europe for dry eye syndrome. This is because the preservative system used in the Restasis formulation is deemed unacceptable for European Health Authority approval.
