Understanding the tear film and supplementation

The tear film acts as a barrier between the eye and the environment. It is a complex structure with many functions essential to maintaining ocular health.

This article will cover the structure and function of the tear film, the changes that occur in dry eye disease, and assessment of the tear film. The properties and formulations of eye drops, and how they act upon the different layers of the tear film will also be discussed.
