Dry Eyes

Dry eyes, dry eye syndrome or dry eye disease is a common condition most common among women especially during and after menopause. Dry eyes are the result of either a decline in tear production or an altered composition of the tears.

Dry eye symptoms include sensations of itchy eyes, burning and even the feeling of a foreign body in the eye; these symptoms are caused by the dryness of the cornea and conjunctiva. Essential fatty acids, especially Omega 7 from sea buckthorn are known to help alleviate dry eyes.
