VIZULIZE: The Causes, The Symptoms and How to Treat Dry Eyes

The Causes, The Symptoms and How to Treat Dry Eyes!


What is Dry Eyes?

Dry Eyes are one of the most common eye conditions affecting 1 in 3 people of any age.

It can occur when the eyes don’t produce enough tears, or the tears evaporate too quickly.  As a result, eyes are left feeling dry, irritated, and uncomfortable.

Whether it is pollution, long screen time, or simply natural side effect linked to age, there are many reasons why your eyes may feel dry – however, it does not have to negatively impact your quality of life.


What causes Dry Eyes?

The factors leading to dry eyes can be split into two primary causes:

Decreased tear production.

  • Age: the eyes create less tears
  • Inflammation: Where the surface layer gets irritated due to an allergy
  • Medication: Some medications can cause eyes to feel dry as a side effect

Evaporative Loss.

  • Screen usage: long hours of screen time.  One blinks much less often when using a computer.
  • Hormonal Changes: caused during Menopause or Pregnancy
  • Pollution and Environment: Wind, Heat, Air Conditioning
  • Allergic Reactions: Pollen, Dust Mites, and Pet Dander
  • Contact Lenses
  • Vitamin A deficiency


What are the Symptoms of Dry Eyes?

  • Sensitivity to light
  • Difficulty wearing contact lenses
  • Eye redness
  • Stinging, burning or scratchy sensation in your eyes
  • A sensation of having something in your eyes
  • Watery eyes, which is the body’s response to the irritation of dry eyes
  • Eye fatigue
  • Blurred vision


How can you Treat and Relieve Dry Eyes?

Dry eyes can usually be controlled with readily available eye care treatments aimed at moisturizing and re-lubricating the eye. Vizulize is a specialized line of eye care products, that is Kind to your Eyes, designed by experts to treat dry eyes and alleviate the associated symptoms of irritation and discomfort.

  • Vizulize Intensive Dry Eye Drops – contains a high concentrate of Sodium Hyaluronate (0.3%) to intensively moisturise and hydrate the eyes. Sodium Hyaluronate is known to reduce tear film break up and reduce symptoms of grittiness and burning
  • Vizulize Dry Eye Mist – contains Sodium Hyaluronate and soothing chamomile in a fine mist format that can be sprayed onto closed eyes, ideal for those who find eye drops difficult or inconvenient to use

All Vizulize Dry Eye products are pH balanced to the eye’s tear fluid, so as not to sting on application, and can all be used while wearing contact lenses.


How can you prevent Dry Eyes?

You can make small changes to your lifestyle to help prevent dry eyes.  Some of these changes include:

  • Attending regular eye check-ups to detect any changes in your eye health and vision
  • Practicing the 20/20/20 rule – for every 20 minutes at the computer or TV, look 20 feet away for 20 seconds
  • Use eye shields when experiencing extreme weather such as UV rays and wind
  • Getting enough sleep allowing your eyes to rest
  • Drinking plenty of water – this helps keeping your body, including the eyes hydrated
