Dry Eye Products at Yaletown Eyecare
Dry Eye Syndrome: A Growing Problem in CanadaDry eye syndrome affects many Canadians, with recent studies estimating that up to 30% of the population experiences dry eye symptoms. Factors contributing to dry eye in Canada include the country’s often harsh and dry climate, an increasingly aging population, and the prevalence of digital devices that encourage prolonged screen time. If left untreated, dry eye symptoms can significantly impact an individual’s daily activities and outdoor pursuits. It can also lead to complications such as corneal abrasions, eye infections, and, in severe cases, vision loss.
