You have normal eyes !
You don't appear to have dry eyes, which is great! If you are experiencing a few uncomfortable symptoms from time to time, your eyes may just be tired, remember to get plenty of sleep and take regular breaks from digital screens. You could also try some eye drops.
You have mild dry eye !
Your dry eyes may just be tired from overuse of digital screens. Consider taking more breaks from the screen and if your symptoms still persist you could try some eye drops.
You have moderate dry eye !
Your dry eye could be due to several factors. It could be due to medication you are taking, contact lens use or spending too much time in drying environments such as air conditioned or centrally heated rooms. Eye drops should help as well as eating more oily fish (or taking a supplement). For more detailed advice that is tailored to you, visit your optician.
You have severe dry eye !
Your dry eye condition is severe, you are probably experiencing many uncomfortable symptoms. The reasons for your dry eye could be 1 singular cause or a combination of factors, which can include wearing your contact lenses for too long, hot or cold environments, an unvaried diet and/or certain medications.
Consider taking some eye drops for some immediate relief. Take breaks away from digital screens, try to get enough sleep and ensure you are eating a balanced diet that includes nuts/seeds, oily fish and dark leafy greens (you could alternatively take a supplement). For more detailed advice that is tailored to you, visit your optician.
