Millions of people suffer from chronic dry eyes. While this medical condition typically doesn't cause any need for immediate medical attention, it's still something that most people want to avoid. These reports analyze the global eye drops and eye lubricants market.
Our eyes are designed to produce moisture naturally to protect against dryness while promoting good vision in the process. Unfortunately, though, many people don't produce enough moisture, resulting in chronic dryness. A survey conducted by Gallup found that 26 million men and women in the United States suffer from chronic dry eyes. By 2022, this number is expected to reach 29 million.
What causes dry eyes exactly? Normally, moisture in the form of tears protects against chronic dryness. In the inner corner of our eyes are ducts that produce and release tears. Known as tear ducts, they convert water, mucus and fats into lubricating tears. But many people don't produce enough tears to protect against chronic dryness. Furthermore, certain underlying medical conditions can increase the risk of chronic dry eyes.
People with diabetes, for example, are more likely to suffer from chronic dry eyes. According to one source, people living with diabetes are up to 50% more likely to experience dry eyes than their counterparts who don't have diabetes. The belief is that diabetes affects certain nerves that's used for tear production. Once diabetes disturbs these nerves, the person's tear ducts begin to produce less tears, eventually resulting in dry eyes. There are ways to protect against dry eyes, however, including the use of lubricating eye drops.
